to come forth, to be known
to begin to exist, to have power or influence
to come to the end of a difficult period or experience
to reveal oneself, come out from an enclosed space
to come into view, to come up from the surface
EMERGE Center for Social and Emotional Learning was founded in 2017 to provide a broad array of social, emotional and psychological services with a primary focus on adolescents and young adults. EMERGE seeks to better engage young people in their own growth process by offering innovative programs and a diverse group of professionals who are skilled and passionate about working with youth.
Our theoretical orientation is integrative, collaborative, relational and youth-focused. Our staff have specialized training in the needs of adolescents, young adults and family systems. Our vision is a world where young people are valued and afforded the resources they need to grow into healthy, strong and happy adults.
The years between 12-25 are a period of tremendous growth, angst, excitement and opportunity, where the challenge to emerge is never greater.
