When and how did your business get started?
In 2005 I opened Pathways For Change, Children's Counseling Center, LLC. We specialize in counseling and treatment of children, adolescents, teens and their families. In 2012 We purchased a larger office building at 401 Chestnut Street on the Triangle in Emmaus, to accommodate our rapidly growing practice. 

Why did you choose the town you did to open your business? 
Emmaus is a wonderful community and a great place to have a business. It is easy to get to know the other merchants and businesses in town. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming. The festivals and traditions in Emmaus make it a very special place to work! 

What is your business best known for?
Pathways for Change, Children's Counseling Center is a very specialized psychological practice. We cater to all of our clients. Our clients love us because of our flexible hours, how easy it is to make an appointment quickly, and how quickly you get to speak to a therapist when you need to. We truly are a unique practice, where we know all of our clients and work very hard to meet their needs. We are here when you need us. We understand that when you have concerns about your children you want answers right away. We do our best to take calls, answer emails, address concerns and worries, and get you an appointment as soon as you need one. 

What's something interesting about your business your customers might not know?
Jodi Merrill, Owner and therapist at Pathways For Change, Children's Counseling Center is also the Regional Director for the national organization "Bully Project."
