Emily Mangan 

Graduate Intern

I’m glad you’re here right now, reading about our team. The interest you’re taking in yourself is huge. I recognize starting with a counselor may feel daunting, but I am here to make that process as open and as safe as possible.

I found my way to counseling after a few years in the education and nonprofit sectors, both in Harrisonburg and in Cleveland, Ohio. In varying roles, I have worked with a diverse range of people, from elementary-aged through adulthood, where I have been witness to the incredible challenges that can come with each stage of life. They can be overwhelming when faced alone. As the current practicum student here at Adagio House, I am available for in-person and telehealth counseling for individuals who seek support and healing from emotional pain.

I am currently working on my Masters in Counseling and Human Development at Lindsey Wilson College. My approach is integrative and holistic, using strengths-based, person-centered and experiential techniques to focus on and consider the whole self. Coupled with psychoeducation, I enjoy utilizing expressive arts to bridge the language barrier that can sometimes accompany difficult experiences and emotions.

I have enormous compassion for those going through life’s challenges and transitions and feel very grateful for the opportunity to be a part of your journey. 
Wherever you may be, I’m glad you’re here.
