Counselor profiles


Emily Somervell, LCSW

Emily SomervelleAs a PCC Counselor, my goal ​​is to help individuals achieve personal growth and wellness through the use of a collaborative counseling relationship. Together we identify your values, explore thinking patterns, highlight your strengths, and examine barriers that may prevent you from reaching your goals. In counseling, we work toward building and strengthening your skills so that you feel confident and prepared to take necessary action to solve problems, face your challenges, and do things that make life better.

Part of my approach involves sharing skills to handle difficult thoughts and feelings more effectively so they have less impact and influence over you. I believe that trust and safety are important factors in the therapeutic process. My goal is to work together as a team to identify what is important to you and to create change in order to build the life you want to live.

My practice areas and specialties include assisting individuals with depression and anxiety, affirming LGBTQIA2S+ experiences, exploring race and social justice, crisis counseling, grief counseling, and working with people with chronic illness.  I have worked with individuals struggling with the impacts of trauma, grief and loss, identity development, and life stage transitions.

My style is collaborative and I value an intersectional framework in counseling sessions. I utilize Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, and Solution Focused Therapy.

When I’m not at PCC, I enjoy being in water (oceans, lakes, rivers, pools, you name it I’m there), spending time with my family, and enjoying the beautiful landscape of the Pacific NW.
