Emily Funderburk is a trauma informed therapist that is known for loving people in the messy middle. She holds a bachelor's degree in Psychology from UNC-Charlotte, and received her Master's in Christian Counseling from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. In her therapy practice, she believes in the value of experiential, attachment, and systems theories to help her clients reach their growth goals. She currently specializes in EMDR therapy, and is training through EFT in her couples sessions. As a therapist, she gets to meet people in the midst of their pain and assist with healing on the other side of their storms. When at home, Emily, her husband Matt, and three kids are always looking for their next family adventure. They like to say they find ways to put the "fun" in their last name Funderburk. She is a learner at heart and enjoys continuing her education in the way the brain and body operates, the power of connection in relationships, and in areas of spiritual growth and development. When she isn't in a counseling session, she uses her work-week to grow the vision of the Inner Freedom Initiative through podcasts and Freedom Thought writings to bring the free message of mental health awareness to as many people that will hear it.
Everyone should have access to hope, safety, and freedom.
