Bree N. Emery, MSW, LCSW (Licensed Clinical Social Worker)
Education: Colorado State University: M.S.W. – Social Work, Colorado State University: B.S. – Psychology
Specialties: Girl’s and women’s issues working, primarily, with females ages 12+. Additionally, providing family counseling. Issues of specialty include: identity issues, self-mutilation, behavioral issues, sexual assault, trauma, eating disorders, coping skills, anxiety, and depression.
Summary of Experience: I have worked for the last decade with youth and families originating from diverse backgrounds, ethnicities, socioeconomic statuses, religions, and paradigms. In working with children, youth, young adults and families in homeless shelters, residential treatment programs, schools, and private practice I have learned the importance of a clinician’s flexibility. (CSU drug and alcohol programs, CSU outreach programs, Urban Peak youth shelter, Head Start, Doulos Ministries residential programs, Family Directions/Manual high school, Vail Youth Services.)
Summary of Approach: I have strived to find a framework to empower women and girls to form strong female identities and discover their strengths, skills and capacities. I believe in a holistic approach to counseling. Consequently, mental, emotional and relational needs are addressed along with physical and spiritual needs.
