Emily De La Torre, M.S., LMHC
Owner | Nationally Board Certified Counselor
As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Marriage and Family Therapist, I serve individuals, couples, and families in Vancouver, WA.
As a therapist, I help people navigate through challenges surrounding relationships, family struggles and life transitions. I specialize in working with couples, business owners and entrepreneurs. I have extensive training in serving couples through Emotion Focused Therapy and I am passionate about supporting couples in healing and reconnecting. With business owners, counseling is approached through a lens that fully acknowledges the business imperatives that impact mental health, family wellness and career success. Along with counseling, I am currently engaged in pioneering innovative programs rooted in psychology to enhance recruiting, selecting and overall production for the financial services industry.
I earned a Bachelor of Science in Family and Child Science and a Minor in Psychology from New Mexico State University. I completed my Master of Science in Counselor Education; Marital, Couple, Family Counseling from Portland State University.
In my free time, I love cooking diverse foods, playing golf, listening to podcasts on business/personal development and most importantly, spending quality time exploring the Pacific Northwest with my husband, daughter and dog.
Meghann Smith, M.A., LMFT
As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I serve individuals, couples, and families in Vancouver, WA.
I believe that we are each guided by our own set of thoughts, behaviors, values, and emotions, which are generally formed from our relationships with others. I seek to help people resolve and overcome challenges related to relationships, familial discord, and mental or emotional distress. I have a special interest in serving those experiencing life transitions through separation, divorce, or co-parenting and couples who have children with special needs. I have thorough training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness techniques and I am continuing training in Emotion Focused Therapy through OCEFT. Additionally, I have a background working with families whose children are on the Autism spectrum. This work focused on providing resources, tools and education around the effects this diagnosis can have on the family structure.
I completed a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology from University of the Pacific in Stockton, California. I earned a Master of Arts Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Chapman University in Orange, California.
Outside of counseling, I enjoy reading classic novels, watching old films, finding unique recipes for both cooking and baking, exploring natural settings and spending quality time with my husband.
