Emily Rein is a licensed mental health counselor in Rochester, New York. She and her husband have an 8 year old son and 3 cats that were unhappy when an infant was brought home. 

Emily graduated from Ithaca College with a B.A. in Journalism with minors in psychology and sociology. While she didn’t pursue Journalism, her 4 years in Ithaca were “Gorges” and she often returns to the Finger Lakes region to visit family and go on wine tours.

Emily’s M.S. in Mental Health Counseling is from the University of Massachusetts. She lived in Boston after college, and this is where she met her now husband (native to that region with a wicked accent to prove it). Her first professional jobs included working with adults & children with developmental disabilities and in fundraising/events planning for the United Way. She had no idea what she wanted to be when she grew up.

Emily and her husband relocated to Rochester in 2007 because the rent in Boston was too damn high. Emily was raised in Rochester. She was happy to be closer to family and friends, but devastated to return to western NY winters. 

As a therapist, Emily worked at a college, urban mental health clinic and then opened her own practice in 2011. She has experience providing individual counseling to adults and adolescents; leading therapy groups; speaking with students about various mental health topics and community advocacy for ending the stigma surrounding mental illness.  

Emily loves: long walks on the beach, pizza, naps, music and online shopping.

Emily could live without: unkind people, green food, snow, flying in airplanes and waiting in lines.
