About me

Welcome! My name is Emily and I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Wisconsin. I have over 18 years of experience working in the mental health field. I have worked in a variety of settings including schools, residential, outpatient, in-home, and private practice.

I feel so committed to this kind of work; the ability to partner with others and help them see their strengths and abilities to empower them. I work to create a healing space where growth, understanding and change can occur.

I love the quote by Carl Jung "we are not what happened to us, we are who we choose to become". This is what I think therapy is all about; helping people understand this and see their future, one that is full of hope and the ability to overcome the challenges and struggles that life can bring. This is not just a philosophy or modality of a treatment. It is a way of being and seeing in the world, a way of seeing the potential and nobility in anything or anyone.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Emily Gutierrez. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Faithful Counseling might be different.

Thankful for Emily's careful attention to detail! She really pulls the gold out of a conversation, does her best to always speak truth, and gets to the heart of things. Thankful for this time.
