Emily Thomas

Do you feel like you have to wear a different mask for every area of your life? Can you express your sexuality with your friends, but have to hide it with your family? I help people integrate themselves, especially in the two areas of sexuality and spirituality. Every part of you belongs.

My Approach

People often have everything they need to get un-stuck, it is simply too hard to see how to get out. Especially when dealing with religious trauma, unsupportive families, or two areas that seem opposed such as being Gay, and wanting to practice a faith. I believe in working together with you to help you transform yourself into what you want when stuck. I use an adaptable approach to fit every person and the unique human being that they are. Sometimes this includes art or movement, writing or speaking, exploring or resting, process or content, and it almost always includes humor.

My Background

I began my clinical work at Shepherds Gate Counseling in 2017, located in Denver Colorado. From there, I moved on to A New Day Counseling practice in January 2018 located in Portland. Here I was able to refine my skills in working with young adults in transition stages of life. I then spent over a year in clinical work at Community Services North West in Vancouver WA. Here I worked with low-income individuals of all ages and genders with a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, addiction, homelessness, life transitions, LGBTQ issues, polyamory, lack of fulfillment, personality differences and more.
