Emily bruns,




Emily Bruns is a Provisionally Licensed Professional Counselor (PLPC under supervision) in the State of Missouri, and holds a Master of Education in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Missouri–St. Louis (UMSL). She has experience and interest working with adults and adolescents surrounding trauma, gender identity, LGBTQ+–identity/concerns, romantic relationships, depression, improving communication, and college/higher education concerns.  

Emily’s warm, approachable style is inclusive and non-judgmental, using humor and empathy as primary building-blocks to form the trusting bond necessary for transformative work.  She isn’t hung up on a particular style, and in fact, Emily incorporates a variety of therapeutic modalities to form an eclectic, client-centered therapeutic relationship that emphasizes client strengths.

From Emily:

“At its best, counseling allows us to experience what it is like to walk through our lives with a guide and fellow sojourner, rather than an expert or advice-giver — one human trying to help another!  That radically authentic orientation allows for the formation of mutual vulnerability and trust between us.  Over time, we lay down our shields and receive the help we need.  There is at least some necessary and inevitable discomfort, but we shoulder it together.  In so doing, we somehow find comfort there too, and even strength.  You can have the life you want, and I can’t wait to help you claim it!”

A gentle reminder: Growth requires us to leave something behind. It can be our habits, beliefs, careers, or mindset, and even people. And this is why making space for grief in the midst of growth is important.  You will mourn your former life to make space for a newer you.
