About Emily Newmann, MSW, LICSW

Emily Newmann has been working in the field for over 20 years with many diverse populations. She has worked in agency settings, schools, home-based crisis work and private practice. She has taught at Boston University and lead national trainings and workshops. Currently, her practice is focused on couples, families, parent guidance, and grief work with adults and groups. As a parent herself, she knows how challenging raising children can be, especially when the family unit is having a difficult time. She helps families and couples find new ways to problem solve as well as helping people feel more confident in their parenting skills so they can parent with their best intentions throughout life’s challenges. Emily also has a deep understanding of grief and loss and is able to sit with clients who are mourning a loved one. She helps people feel more ease and comfort as they put their life back together in a different way than ever imagined. She helps couples manage conflicts that arise and find new ways of communication with each other so each person feels seen and heard.

Emily is an artist. She uses expressive arts in her work with clients when a client is open to it. Emily uses a combination of approaches with clients from narrative therapy to mindfulness techniques to help clients discover new ways of living their lives that are more in line with their hopes, desires, and ways they wish to be in this world. She believes people have their unique story to tell, and her job is to help them recognize the parts of their story that are helpful and those that get in the way of how they want to live their life.
