Emily Moeller is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker Associate (LCSWA) in the state of North Carolina. Originally from South Carolina, Emily received her Bachelor of Science in Parks, Recreation, and Tourism Management from Clemson University, with an interest and emphasis in how sport and recreation can help communities thrive. During this time, she worked with various non-profits in the southeast, where she discovered a love of working with families in these communities. This newfound interest in family focused work eventually led her to social work, where she graduated with a Master of Social Work from Baylor University. Her time at Baylor provided the opportunity for exploring different areas of social work, ultimately leading her back to working with families in various school districts in South Carolina. Since then, she has also had the honor of being able to work with the US Center for Mental Health and Sport, supporting athletes and sport communities in their journey to end the stigma of mental health in sports.
Emily believes in approaching therapy through a wholistic lens, recognizing that clients are whole people with many different facets of their life. By recognizing the whole parts of a person, one can recognize strengths, passions, traditions, and interests that can ultimately serve as a helping tool during sessions. When working with clients, Emily uses an eclectic approach and pulls from various therapy modalities and theories, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Psychoeducation, and Narrative Therapy. She works to ensure approaches best fit the client and their individual needs. Most importantly, she believes that clients are the experts of their own lives and approaches each conversation with the respect and importance they deserve.
Although most of her previous experience is with children and families, Emily enjoys working with clients in all stages of life and from all backgrounds. Through personal experience, she has seen the positive impact that starting conversations can have on mental health stigma and hopes to empower clients to continue the conversation. Mental health affects everyone, and Emily hopes to be a resource for the caregivers of those impacted by a mental health diagnosis as well. She has a deep interest in the neuroscience aspect of mental health and hopes to use this interest to help clients have a more well-rounded understanding of their mental health journey.
In her free time, Emily enjoys going to the mountains with her dog, Phoebe, and searching for the best ice cream spots in the Triangle.
