Ms. Emily Lane, LMHC, NCC
Master of Arts in Mental Health Counseling
NCC – National Certified Counselor
Emily Lane is a Nationally Board-Certified Counselor (NCC) and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC). She has a strong belief in the power of the therapeutic relationship and uses a strengths-based approach to therapy. In 2012, she received a Master of Arts degree in mental health counseling from Valparaiso University and recently completed coursework in school counseling to diversify her skillset.
Emily has over 10 years of experience working therapeutically with individuals regarding a variety of concerns, such as career development, anxiety, self-esteem, life transitions, and relationship issues. She also has extensive experience in program development, consultation and supervision, classroom instruction, and collaborating on interdepartmental teams. Emily began working at Purdue University Northwest in 2017 and currently serves as a career counselor & training program supervisor. Previously, she worked as a behavior therapist for 4 years with individuals who have developmental disabilities, teaching coping strategies, and interpersonal skills in both 1:1 and group settings. She is particularly passionate about establishing a supportive learning environment in therapy & in the classroom, as well as helping others gain confidence as they navigate through the unknowns of their personal, career, and academic growth.
Emily’s focus is strengths-based and humanistic. She strongly believes in helping clients identify & understand their strengths, while also empowering them to identify potential unhelpful behaviors & thoughts in order to practice new ways of engaging with the world. Emily’s perspective on personal growth is that self-awareness is not like peeling back the layers of an onion in order to reveal what’s there; rather, it’s an opportunity to reflect on where you’ve been and then decide which parts to let go & which parts to build upon to become what you want to be. A quote she lives by is, “It takes courage to grow older and become who you really are.”
