Emily Garmisa's Bio

Emily’s clients describe her as a calming presence who provides empathy and humor. She is authentic, creative, and admits she loves a good pun. Her stance as a feminist, queer woman, and actor all support her empowering and integrative approach.

“I love seeing people rebuild their lives in the face of hopelessness and trauma,” she says.

Emily is a CADC, or Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor, who is fluent in many forms of recovery. She has supported many individuals with SMART Recovery, REFUGE, Harm Reduction, and/or 12-Step programs

“I help people to help themselves,” she says. “The individuals sitting across from me are the true agents of change in their own lives, I hold a mirror to help them see themselves more clearly, and shine a light towards the direction they want to go.”

In her spare time, she enjoys crafting mildly offensive fiber arts, playing video games, going to see theater and performing in shows, and binge-watching Netflix.
