Emily

Emily Moriarty is the Director of Clinical Services at Reset Outdoors, a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Pennsylvania, in practice since 2016. She earned a master’s degree in Counseling and Human Services from Lehigh University.

Emily intentionally tailors her approach to each client’s specific needs, utilizing a number of evidence-based therapeutic techniques. She believes each individual already possesses exactly what they need to achieve healing, therefore she works hard to support her clients in their efforts to uncover their own power, resilience, and sense of peace.

While she works with people from all different backgrounds, she specializes in working with the LGBTQ+ population, particularly related to issues of gender and sexuality. Supporting people through social and/or medical transition is a part of her career that she is especially passionate about.

Spending time outdoors is something Emily finds thoroughly restorative. When she doesn’t get the chance to be outside for extended periods of time, noticing the sounds of wildlife around her, particularly bird songs, brings her great joy. While she offers sessions in a traditional office setting, she also loves the opportunity to get her clients out of the office and into the great outdoors.
