Emily Hurst, L.I.S.W.
The process of finding a therapist in a new community can be overwhelming and confusing, especially for young adults who may have never been to therapy. My role as Case Manager is to create a space that is safe, warm, and nurturing so that the students can explore what their goals of therapy are and identify what they need and want from a therapist. My hope for all students who enter my office is that they leave feeling more confident that there is help available to them in our community and they have the support they need to access it.
In my previous work, I served individuals in the criminal justice system and am still very passionate about ensuring that this population has access to services that will help them be safe and stable in the community. In addition, I have worked extensively with those experiencing chronic homelessness and continue to advocate for safe, supportive housing for all people in our community. Housing is a human right.
