About Me

I am a licensed Professional Counselor in Texas with 6 years of experience in private practice, and an additional 9 years in various settings to include: acute in-patient, intensive outpatient, group facilitation, and residential treatment centers. This diverse background has allowed me to work with individuals, couples, children, teens, and adults ranging from ages 4-geriatric in age. A large portion of my experience has been dedicated to working with the teenage population facing some of life's most difficult challenges. This includes additional experience in working with teens who are currently in the foster care system, who have recently been in the foster care system, or who are at risk of going into the foster care system.

My client-centered approach is often driven by utilizing Cognitive Therapies, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Mindfulness, and Strength Based Therapy. In order to tailor your experience to achieve your goals, an eclectic use of modalities will be used to help you conquer your goals. I have specialized experience in Depression, Stress, Anxiety, Employment Related Stress, Anger Management, specific challenges teens are facing, and enjoy working with couples and parents in resolving family and other relationship issues that may bring them into therapy.

My approach is compassionate yet direct, and non-judgmental. It has been my experience that when working with teens, it is of vital importance that a safe place to speak freely and feel heard is among the most important factors in determining success in the therapeutic relationship.

Emily Cole is a good councillor. It may not seem it, but I’ve opened up to her more then anyone

In two weeks I’ve received so much valuable guidance from Emily. I feel heard, understood & challenged. This is the best therapy experience I’ve ever had. Thanks so much Emily!

Emily has been spot on in helping me and has not given up on me, sending me messages when I disappear, to show she’s ready to talk things through when I’m ready. I’ve loved it so far!

Absolutely fantastic. She’s the best hands down. I’ve been through a lot of counseling and a lot of therapy, and she is definitely by far is one of the best I’ve ever seen. She listens and cares about the things I have to say. It helps me with the root cause of my problems. I can’t thank you enough for matching me with her.

Emily is compassionate and understanding to my situation. She has provided me with various tools and ideas to me through some dark times.
Emily is also very relatable.

Written by R.A. on Jun 09, 2019 after counseling with Emily for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship

We are still new to the experience, and signed up right before departing on an extended holiday. However, while we haven’t been able to fully engage with Emily, yet (created by our situation entirely), I personally feel that there is a path forward for us to explore upon our return. Her gentle approach, and sharing of seemingly effective tools have allowed me to enjoy our vacation knowing that there will be good help, advice and relationship coaching upon my return. My wife and I have a lot to work through, but the last few weeks have made me feel that things are workable.

My daughter looks forward to her sessions with Ms. Cole. Although she has only had 3 sessions with her, I can see a wonderful difference in how my daughter is handling various After her last session, my daughter made the remark “Ms. Emily notices everything!” (She had been particularly quiet.) We are in the midst of moving to another city, so knowing that this online format won’t change anything about her sessions, has confirmed that this approach is working well for my daughter!

I've only been working with Emily for a short time now but I already feel such relief from being able to share my worries. She doesn't judge, she is very positive and respectful. She has lots of good ideas for me to try and puts in a lot of effort. I'm already having small successes which mean the world to me. She's also very committed to her work and ready to learn new things about my personal needs and situation as we go. It's really not a one for all approach but a program tailored to my goals. I absolutely recommend her.
