Emily Gee is a Licensed Professional Counselor with a Masters and an Education Specialist degree in Professional Counseling from Georgia State University. Prior to attending Georgia State, she earned a Bachelors degree from The University of Georgia in Child and Family Development. Emily’s passion for counseling and empowering others began in college during an internship where Emily would help develop and apply self-esteem building curriculum for young girls and women. Emily’s focus on eating disorders began prior to graduate school after noticing a lack of resources and advocacy for individuals struggling with the disorder.

Emily provides evidence-based treatment that focuses on individuals’ inner strengths and abilities to help elicit positive change. Emily encourages individuals to concentrate on the present moment and to challenge themselves to take a candid look at the connection between their thoughts, behaviors, and emotions to move towards acceptance and authenticity of self.
