Emily De La Torre, M.S., LMHC
Founder | National Board Certified Counselor
As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Marriage and Family Therapist, I serve individuals, couples, and families in Vancouver, WA.
I specialize in working with couples, business owners and entrepreneurs. With couples, we examine each person’s unique framework for love, work to heal emotional injuries and develop healthier ways connect. Together we strive to cultivate a compassionate, secure, playful and loving relationship. With business owners, counseling is approached through a lens that fully acknowledges the business imperatives that impact mental health, family wellness and career success.
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. Additionally, I have engaged in specialized training to practice Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples with Dr. Sue Johnson, the primary developer of EFT, and I have completed EFT Core Skills through PCEFT.
Outside of the office, I am often referred to as a worker bee. I love working on interior/exterior design projects, baking a myriad of goods, exploring the outdoors and homemaking with my two daughters under toe.
Ellie Rose, M.A., LMHCA
Clinical Director | National Board Certified Counselor
I work with individuals, couples and families who know something is off but need some guidance in finding their way back to healthy relationships and mental clarity. Like M. Scott Peck, I believe that “mental health is an ongoing process of dedication to reality at all costs.”
My work with clients centers on this principle and it is a joy and privilege to work with people from all walks of life in order to help correct unhealthy thinking patterns, optimize relationships with the self and with others, and find meaning in this life. My particular interests include addressing shame-based thinking, emotional and psychological abuse and navigating difficult life transitions. Cognitive-behavioral techniques combined with a strength-based therapy will help form the foundation of our work together.
I completed my Bachelor of Arts degree in Social Sciences with Washington State University and my Master of Arts degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with the University of the Cumberlands in Williamsburg, Kentucky.
Outside of the office, I identify as a Bibliophile and a Writer. You will also find me haunting the wild spaces of the Pacific Northwest, pouring just one more cup of coffee, or making up limericks to entertain my children.
