About Emily Griffiths

Licensed Psychotherapist

Hi there, I’m so glad you’re here. You’re struggling with inner pain and shameful feelings that you can’t express to anyone.  As a result, you feel isolated, hopeless, and angry. This hinders your ability to thrive in all of your relationships-romantic, sexual, professional, and social. 

I’m very passionate about my work as a therapist, and am consistently inspired and motivated by an individual’s capacity for growth and change. I believe even our deepest limitations and persistent blocks can be transformed. Through our work together, I will encourage you to get friendly with your dark side; the anger, hate, resentment, guilt and shame. This paves the way to feel positive emotions more deeply such as love, passion, serenity, happiness. 

Therapy provides the path to feel deeply connected to yourself and others. I create a place for you to feel safe and understood as you unravel your complex feelings and thoughts. We work together to establish healthier ways of coping and communicating. I help you create internal freedom, a genuine sense-of-self, and more fulfilling relationships.  

Education and Background

I hold a Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from St. Edward’s University, and am licensed to practice psychotherapy in the State of Texas. I have gained experience in a variety of clinical settings:  community mental health, eating disorder/substance abuse treatment centers, hospice, and university counseling. I’ve enjoyed being in private practice since 2015.

I’m committed to my growth as a therapist, and am currently enrolled in an intensive 2-year training program which integrates recent findings in neuroscience and emotion/attachment/systems theories. I utilize my skill set as a mentor at Capital Factory working with entrepreneurs, start-ups, and late stage technology companies.

Depression

Depression can be a mixed bag. You may have pervasive ups and downs throughout the day. One moment you feel fatigued, the other frustrated. You might feel angry and sad. Most likely you can’t pinpoint what has caused these feelings because they’ve been there for so long.  You expect them to lift any day now. But, they don’t.

Anxiety

Your anxiety is unique to you based on your own internal world, past experiences, and present situations. The tiniest things can freak you out, or make you feel panicked. Fixating on thoughts or past events cause you to be even more distressed and anxious. This affects your ability to focus and concentrate at work, and be present in your personal relationships.
