About Me:

Emily Pitocchelli, LCPC.jpeg

My goal is to make therapy a welcoming, goal-oriented experience. Every client is different.  Starting where you are, I will tailor our sessions to meet your needs. Most importantly, I create a warm, caring, and calm environment where we can explore your feelings in a safe space. I have an integrative approach drawing from mindfulness-based modalities as well as more traditional practices.  


I specialize in a wide range of issues facing children, teens and adults, including anxiety, depression, learning disabilities, transition to college, grief, and challenges around identity. I enjoy working with parents to build skills to take their parenting to the next level by improving communication and through behavioral interventions to create a more harmonious family environment. 


I have spent the last 7 years as a mental health therapist at Sheppard Pratt, where I worked with a diverse population, offering individual and family therapy to patients ages 8-18 and their parents, as well as to adults. I have experience and training in a range of approaches, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TFCBT), and mindfulness modalities. I received my Masters in Counseling from Johns Hopkins University and am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC). 

I currently run SPACE parent coaching both individually and in groups. 

Emily has been working with PRN Counseling since 2022 and  is licensed in Maryland and offers parent coaching Nationally. Emily often travels to peoples homes, schools or workplaces to conduct sessions for an additional fee. 

 I am able to help my clients by building a strong therapeutic alliance, using active listening, assessment and goal setting, tailor treatment to meet the individual needs of my client, teaching coping skills and strategies to help clients build resilience and build their problem solving skills, and providing psychoeducation and resources.
