Emily Vincent, Executive Director and Therapist

Emily Kerlin Vincent earned her B.A. in Psychology and her M.Ed. in Counseling Psychology from Temple University, and is a member of the American Counseling Association.  She is a Licensed Professional Counselor and holds a Fellow in Thanatology (Death, Dying and Bereavement) from the Association of Death Education and Counseling (ADEC).  She also has a certificate in Advanced Bereavement Facilitation through the American Academy of Bereavement and has an inactive certification as a Secondary School Guidance Counselor.  She has over 15 years of experience and study in the human service field, specifically related to bereavement and the developmental needs of children and adults.

Emily strives to uphold the philosophy and mission of the Center by serving its community through various roles.  As Executive Director, Emily manages the Center’s operational responsibilities and development needs, while supporting the staff in carrying out the hands-on mission of the Center’s mission every day.  She works closely with the Board of Directors and and utilizes her background in research and program management to address Center’s growing needs.

Emily also personally works as one of the Center’s therapists and continues to find that piece of her work especially fulfilling.  Emily’s clinical work is rooted in a person-centered philosophy, from which she supports each individual’s values and core experiences in exploring the impact of loss in his or her life.  She respects and honors the privilege to work with others through these very powerful and often very private matters of the heart.

Emily can also be found participating in all aspects of the Camp Millie program and supporting the Program staff in the facilitation of peer support groups, when needed.   She is available to work with schools and in the community to educate others about the field of grief counseling or to offer group support through the grieving process.
