About Emily:
Emily Kircher-Morris, LPC has dual Masters degrees, the first in Education with certification in Gifted Education and the second in Counseling and Family Therapy. Emily combines her experience and training to support twice-exceptional and neurodivergent kids, teens, and their families. She, with her husband, Dave, created The Neurodiversity Podcast (www.neurodiversitypodcast.com) in 2018. Now in its fourth year, The Neurodiversity Podcast continues to provide interviews with experts and #ownvoices within the neurodiversity movement.

Emily began her career as a teacher in the St. Louis, MO metro area. With a Masters in Education and gifted certification, and armed with her own experiences as a twice-exceptional student, she took an interest in helping her districts better serve their gifted student population. She helped develop curriculum and a learning environment that allowed students to learn at their own unique pace, building on each child's strengths.

She decided to commit herself to the deeper needs of the gifted community by getting a Masters degree in Counseling from the University of Missouri/St. Louis. In 2011, she opened a private practice, Unlimited Potential Counseling and Education Center (www.unlimitedpotentialstl.com), in the western St. Louis suburb of O'Fallon, MO. The practice specializes in gifted and family counseling, group counseling, testing, and education services. The practice has eight counselors on staff.

In 2012, Emily founded the Gifted Support Network (www.giftedsupportnetwork.org), an organization which provides resources and support to parents and educators of gifted and high-ability children of St. Louis. She currently serves as the President of the organization.

In addition, she provides lectures and presentations across the country for organizations like NAGC and the ACA, and provides continuing education lectures to local universities and school districts. She's a soon-to-be-published author, and the mother of three gifted children of her own.
