Emily Coen, MT-BC, LPCC-S
For the past 15 years, Emily has delivered therapy to youth and families in a variety of settings. Emily received her undergraduate degree in Music Therapy at Radford University and completed her degree with a six-month internship at the Psychiatric Research Institute at the University of Illinois at Chicago. For the first five years of her career, Emily practiced music therapy in Zanesville, OH with children and adults in an inpatient psychiatric hospital and worked towards her master’s of arts with a focus in clinical counseling at The Ohio State University. During this time, Emily also worked as a music therapist in a hospice program, and it was through this experience that she learned the value of treating families in their homes.
Following completion of her Master’s Degree, Emily had the opportunity to work intensively with youth and their families in their homes and in the community. This work allowed extensive development and implementation of interventions in the home environment, as well as consultation and advocacy in school systems throughout our community, among other treatment providers, and in the juvenile court system. Additionally Emily has provided intensive individual and family therapy to youth in crisis in a hospital crisis stabilization setting.
She is trained in multiple evidenced-based models including Multi-systemic Therapy (MST), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Motivational Interviewing, and while these models are valuable in treatment, Emily believes that the collaborative relationship that can be formed with families in their every day environment is invaluable.
Emily is a Board Certified Music Therapist and is a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor with a supervisor distinction in the state of Ohio.
