Emily Daniels,M.Ed., MBA, NCC and 
SEP™ (in training)

Emily Daniels has more than twenty years experience supporting at-risk children and affecting change in mission driven settings.  She possesses a unique skill set as a seasoned counselor and trained "systems thinker."  She has extensive experience as a change maker in urban, suburban, and rural educational settings. 


In June of 2016, Emily attended the International JRI Psychological Trauma Conference in Boston that changed her life!  It was there that she became exposed to the science of ACES and trauma and the ways in which trauma requires healing in the body.  Already trained as a Reiki practitioner and a mindfulness teacher, Emily began to integrate trauma informed principles in every facet of her work as a student assistance counselor.  As fast and as furious as she was working to practice from a "trauma informed" paradigm, she met barriers in every part of the educational system.  Burning out fast, she decided to take a huge leap of faith and start her own consulting firm, "HERE this NOW" which provides technical assistance to systems seeking to build capacity for becoming "trauma-informed."  Her clients have included individuals that participate in her workshops (administrators and executives, direct care providers, and everything in between), school districts, staff development companies, health care systems, and non profits that serve children.  Passionate about the revolutionary promise of the trauma movement, Emily won't stop until she has helped build a coordinated system of public services that heal, connect, and care for all involved.
