Emily Luder, Master's in Clinical Counseling

Emily Luder graduated from West Chester University with a Masters of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling in 2020. Before graduate school, Emily pursued a bachelors degree in Criminal Justice, also from West Chester University. Her undergrad internship working with women on probation with trauma backgrounds allowed her to recognize her passion for providing mental health services to justice-involved individuals.

Emily continued to pursue her interest in correctional counseling during her graduate school internship and work post-graduation. She utilized a strengths-based approach, paired primarily with The Good Lives Model, to help clients recognize and address the underlying issues that lead to maladaptive coping. She has extensive experience in helping others with depression, anxiety, substance use, trauma, and a variety of other mental health conditions.

Emily’s main therapeutic approaches include cognitive therapy (CBT) and solution-focused therapy, with a trauma-informed approach. She believes in taking a holistic approach and meeting clients where they are. In her free time, Emily enjoys spending time with her partner, reading murder mysteries, and waiting patiently for Halloween.
