Emily Hastings, LPC, NCPC, Rule 31 Mediator

I’ll help you redefine the way you view yourself and others, understand why you do things you don’t want to do, and help you become aligned in mind, body, and spirit. 

A Unique Approach

My approach is not traditional; I don't waste time on classic ineffective therapy, we don’t spend much time on the surface, and my favorite clients to work with are those who want to become real. 


My clients cannot believe how fast change occurs when we work together...this happens so often that my clients have termed my therapy style as being on the fast track. EVERY ONE of my clients walk out of EVERY session with a clear understanding of - the next step, new ideas to consider, what needs to change. I am of the opinion that there are very few gifted/skilled/talented therapists out there. Those who know what they are doing should be able to produce tangible results for their clients.


Many of us long to live out our purpose in life - I worked to find mine (my career) and will help you find yours. To do so requires us to be real, honest, candid, seeking and receptive. I care more about your character than your comfort.




Rational thoughts that you know to be true

Emotions are never the basis for decisions 

Actions based on truth

Loving God more than yourself

About Me

When we meet, you’ll find I am unlike most therapists. I am completely devoted to my life's work and my clients. The best way to describe me is "REAL"...I don't pretend to be more than I am, I am honest, direct, passionate, kind, committed, and ambitious.

I have experienced struggle and conflict just like everyone has, and through my unwavering belief, resulted in my complete transformation. At the time, I did not understand my pain had a purpose, and maybe you do not either. But it did, and you will understand why you had to walk through the pain one day. 


It's important to me to know I have been used to make a difference in someone's life. There is no better feeling than this.


I don't believe in providing mediocre service. I believe it's imperative to provide truth. I value discernment and wisdom. I believe your vulnerability is what makes you beautiful. I believe. One word that I hope would describe me: REAL. I love my family and my dog, Mr. Bubbles. I am blessed to be a blessing. 



Emily Hastings, LPC, NCPC, Rule 31 Mediator

I received my Masters in Professional Counseling in 2002. I completed my internship at Kids in The Middle (group and individual counseling for kids and families working through divorce) in St. Louis, Missouri. I completed my post masters professional counseling clinicals at a nonprofit serving the general population in Franklin, Tennessee.


I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) and national certified parenting coordinator (NCPC) and a Rule 31 Mediator. I am a provider of the court mandated divorce class for parents in Williamson County. I serve as child custody panel member on a grass roots movement started in 2014 out of California in an effort to create national judicial reform as it relates to divorce. I happily accept invitations to speak at national conferences; most recent is the Tennessee Bar Association. 

I am at a place in life where there is nothing more important than my family, my clients, and my mission. I am married and have two children, ages 22 and 20. I also have a fur baby...Mr. Bubbles, whom I adore.
