Emerson Hough, FFS

Child and Family Therapist

Emerson Hough is a child and family therapist who graduated from Seattle University’s MAEd Clinical Mental Health Counseling program in August 2020. They have a background in community mental health providing in person, virtual, and school based services to youth ages 3-21 and their families. Emerson has a genuine personality and authentic approach to therapy that allows them to truly meet clients where they’re at, which works well with uncertain families, adolescents, and youth who don’t want to be in therapy.

They specialize in trauma-informed, client-centered, and strengths-based therapy. Emerson believes you are the expert in your experience, and mental health is affected by the systems (home, community, school, etc) that you’re a part of. They love psychoeducation and use a variety of techniques to engage youth such as play, art, and bibliotherapy to facilitate developmentally appropriate communication and self-expression.

Emerson enjoys working with children and families, especially youth 12 and under. They have experience working with autistic youth, neurodiversity, special education classifications like 504s and IEPs, queer and gender diverse youth, as well as suicidal ideation and self-harm behavior.

Emerson was born and raised on the Eastside and loves tea, reading, and participating in fandom of all kinds. Prior to their work in the mental health field, they worked in childcare and early childhood education. They like to spend their downtime watching YouTube, cosplaying, and playing story-driven video games.
