Emily De La Torre, M.S., LMHC
Owner | Nationally Board Certified Counselor
As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Marriage and Family Therapist Associate, I serve individuals, couples, and families in Vancouver, WA.
I earned a Bachelor of Science in Family and Child Science and a Minor in Psychology from New Mexico State University. For graduate school, I earned a Master of Science in Counselor Education; Marital, Couple, Family Counseling from Portland State University.
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 consistently attend educational conferences to stay updated on cutting edge mental health advancements.
Aside from counseling, I appreciate traveling and engaging in philanthropic work. I have been fortunate enough to serve abroad in Cambodia and Argentina, while also spending time in the Dominican Republic and Thailand. With each trip, a sense of amazement seems to grow and the desire to continue traveling remains strong.
In my free time, I love playing golf, cooking and being outdoors. Any experience that allows me to take advantage of the beauty in the Northwest with my husband, daughter and dog is definitely something I treasure.
Heather Pace, M.A., LMHCA
As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate, I serve individuals, couples, and families in Vancouver, WA. I earned a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Washington State University and a Masters of Arts in Counseling from Multnomah University.
I am passionate about relationships, both those we have with others and the ones we have with ourselves. I see healthy relationships as foundational to healthy lives. In therapy sessions, I help clients identify their strengths, learn ways to productively deal with difficult life experiences, find hope, address trauma, and discover new approaches to assist in their personal and relational growth. To better serve individuals, couples, and families, I continually invest in training and have given special focus to attachment issues, trauma, couples work, and parenting. As an independent practitioner, I work in association with Pax Family Counseling.
Outside of counseling, I take an interest in the educational systems in our community and in helping people in need connect to resources to improve the quality of their lives.
On a personal level, I enjoy spending time with family, watching movies, reading, playing games, and watching my three teenage children participate in their activities.
