Emily Vliek, LMSW


Clinical Social Worker

Often life’s transitions can be difficult to navigate and we can have barriers, past or present, which inhibit our ability to change and adapt. I believe in the individuals’ ability to change and reconcile ourselves with the challenges and difficulties that life presents.

I am honored to partner with clients and empower them to find the tools and strength to overcome difficulties and enhance their coping abilities. I offer an objective and safe environment to share your thoughts, emotions and struggles. I believe with balance and openness, clients can create new coping mechanisms to make them stronger and resilient to life’s stressors.

My past experience has been in health care. I worked almost 10 years in hospice and end of life work. I also worked in a clinic setting as well as home based care on a multi-disciplinary team providing support to those who were aging or with chronic illness. I most recently assisted in facilitating a support group for women experiencing postpartum depression and perinatal mood disorders.
