Emilee Rodriguez

Emilee Rodriguez is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who has recently opened a new office out of Buffalo, Minnesota. She specializes in women’s issues, couples’ counseling (including dating, marriage, and co-parenting), and working with adolescents.

Emilee is the chair of the membership committee of the Minnesota chapter of AFCC. This year, under her leadership and with the help of an invigorated committee, the chapter’s membership has increased over 12% since July with 28 new members. This is particularly important as this means the chapter has 5 more members than the next highest chapter (California), in what is a friendly international competition. If by April 30 we are still ahead, the chapter will receive a $2,500 award.

Emilee emphasizes her passion for helping families, couples, and individuals through her work by creating new pathways in communication and conflict. Her office provides in person therapy and telehealth sessions across Minnesota. She has extensive experience in Complex Family Systems and values professional collaboration in helping families become more functional.  Her website is essencecounselingservices.com.

Her professional goal is to be present with others in a way that allows them to discover more deeply who they are, where they are stuck, and where and how they desire to grow and change. She enjoys leading her clients to more healthy and functional relationships: role modeling good boundaries, goal setting, and growing in perspective.
