Under Clinical Supervision

Emily Eppolite, Licensed Associate Counselor, 37AC00645400 is practicing under the supervision of Ashley Appleton (New Jersey, LPC, 37pc00685500) at Resilience Lab.

Please, note: A clinician listed as being “clinically supervised” is completing clinical hours toward their licensure. They have one or more fully licensed clinical supervisors that often have special training to become supervisors. They consult with their supervisor(s) on all of their cases, which means that, when working with them, you are getting the time and expertise of multiple therapists in your treatment.

What was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?

Pain and trauma often hold people back from reaching their full potential. I became a therapist because I want people to get the most from their lives. Everyone is going to have problems and issues. Learning to cope and practicing gratitude for what you have will make room for more passion and enthusiasm for living.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

Is there anything you’d change about your life? Why would that change matter to you? Asking questions is powerful. Questions spur self-exploration and allow you to see situations from a different perspective. By bringing curiosity into sessions, I guide clients towards happier, healthier, and more productive lives. The truth is, we all suffer. The difference between surviving and thriving is how we find ways to cope, stay present even when it's hard, and push back against unhelpful thoughts. To get there, we’ll address the underlying causes and set concrete, attainable goals to face these challenges. Together, we’ll find solutions to feeling more connected.

What are your biggest strengths as a therapist?

I’m a rare combination of logic and empathy. My keen sensitivity enables me to connect deeply with clients and I have a unique ability to ask rational questions that break unhelpful patterns. By bringing these traits together, clients feel understood and empowered to face their situation head on. I’m an active listener who is genuinely curious about what people have to say. When you share your situation with me, I’ll be present and meet you where you’re at, with whatever it is you’re thinking and feeling. I’m not afraid to talk about things that are difficult, dark, or taboo. If you’re looking for someone who can “go there” with you, I’ll offer support and a listening ear. I’m also a naturally creative, artistic person. When I’m working with clients, I use my creativity to reframe the intense emotions or difficult patterns they’re working through.

Work History

I love helping people through hard times and getting them on the right path. During my time at Crisis Text Line and The Trevor Project, I delivered confidential mental health counseling via text message to people experiencing anxiety attacks, suicidal ideation, and self harm. Offering clients support when they’re in pain is really rewarding to me. Through these experiences, I’ve developed an ideal skill set for working with people in crisis. I’ve also been a counselor at alternative schools for children with issues around bullying and drug use. Seeing these children develop empathy, improve their mindsets, and overcome these complex challenges inspired me to continue working with people who need support the most. I am now a proud member of the Resilience Lab mental health collective—the largest community of clinicians collaborating to improve mental health outcomes. Whether you’re feeling disconnected, on-edge, or struggling to manage day-to-day life, Resilience Lab has some of the best therapists in the country who can help you move forward in a healthy way.
