Emily P Houck, MA, LCPC, Licensed Professional Counselor in Rockville
My clinical training and professional background is in community counseling, with a focus on addictions, mental health disorders, and grief and trauma. I work with children (age 5 and up), adolescents, and adults. My therapeutic presence is naturally open, accepting, and warm. I am very goal-oriented with my clients, as I believe in making the therapeutic process as productive, solution-focused, and meaningful as possible. I do work with clients to gain insight into how experiences from the past inform their present, but I do this in a way that focuses on working toward solving problems in the here-and-now.
My therapeutic approach is integrative and individualized to meet the needs and goals of my clients. I am a trauma-informed counselor. I predominantly utilize cognitive-behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing techniques, psychoeducational techniques, mindfulness-based practices, and play therapy (when working with children).
I have special interest in working with clients in regards to issues of addictions (particularly substance use, gambling, and compulsive eating), grief, trauma, mood disorders, anxiety, and behavioral health issues that are informed by societal oppression. I also have special experience working with clients who have been recently-diagnosed with HIV.
