Emily Spence, LLMSW - Offering Face to Face/Telehealth in Ann Arbor


Clinical Social Worker

I believe that therapy is a safe and non-judgmental place for clients to explore what is most important to them. It is important to me to relate to clients as whole people, who are much more than the concerns they bring to session, but people with unique identities, experiences, relationships, communities, and strengths. Keeping all of these in mind helps me offer personalized guidance, support, and perspective that ultimately serves client’s own goals. It is truly an honor to witness these various facets of individuals, and I am dedicated to bringing the warmth, respect, and support that clients deserve in turn.

My past experiences have been in community settings working with women diverted from the criminal justice system for substance use disorder treatment and working with people with severe and persistent mental illness. Outside of the mental health/behavioral health field, I have experience supporting elderly persons with dementia and doing research with chronic pain populations along with LGBTQ+ populations.
