It is very easy to refrain from confrontation due to fears of how our significant other will react. It is also very easy to blow up at our significant other since they are likely someone we feel comfortable around and can get most irritated with. Breakdowns in communication are extremely common but unfortunately, they may lead to Gottman's four horsemen of a declining relationship (criticism, contempt, defensiveness, and stonewalling). I aim to create a safe, nonjudgmental space for couples to set goals, communicate their perspectives, and increase understanding of the barriers to reaching their goals.
I primarily use a cognitive behavioral therapeutic approach with ideas from Gottman's theory. However, I will pull from other approaches as needed (acceptance and commitment therapy, solution-focused therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, mindfulness therapy).
I have a Bachelor of Science in Biopsychology, Cognition, and Neuroscience and a Master of Science in Clinical Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling. I have been working as a therapist for the past four years providing services to children as young as four years old through all ages of adulthood. I have worked with people individually pertaining to their relationships as well as with couples and in family settings.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Emily Jurries. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with ReGain might be different.
Emily is by far the best couples counselor we have had. Already, we are seeing differences in our relationship. She is kind, understanding, and has a way with words. Would definitely recommend her!
Emily is a thoughtful, compassionate, and skilled therapist. She consistently demonstrates the art of truly listening, and practices reflective communication. Her approach to each session appears firmly rooted in genuine concern and appreciation for her clients, and with each meeting I’ve felt valued, heard, validated, and cared for. She has helped tremendously in the midst of incredibly complex emotional struggles, and I’m so grateful to know that I can count on her guidance and support as I navigate towards a healthier future.
Emily is prompt to respond, attentive when listening , helpful with all sorts of resources, most importantly friendly and easy to talk to. highly recommend Emily! She helps keep things on track and helps us work towards a common goal by bringing it back to the problem instead of allowing us to argue. Great job and I look forward to all the work to help us going forward.
Emily has been very helpful for my wife and I in our couples counseling. We really appreciate her in session and outside of them with the worksheets and resources she shares with us on this platform. She feels engaged with our conversations in a way that provides a reflection of the dynamics of our marriage in different ways than we typically cycle through and that has helped us break down some communication barriers.
Emily creates a safe space, she joins the conversation to ask clarification questions, rephrasing of statements and provides tools to continue working towards our goals as a couple.
