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.

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 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.  She approaches each individual or family with compassionate support in helping others find hope, meaning, and strength when faced with traumatic suffering and many levels of profound loss.  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 involved in the Center’s support group programs, including Camp Millie and Nello’s Corner, and she participates with the Center’s Professional Training series as well.   She is available to work with schools and organizations in the community to educate others about the resources offered at the Center and to offer professional consultation surrounding grief needs in larger systems of impact.
