Erin is an experienced adult therapist (aged 18+) who is dedicated on helping people cope with anxiety, depression, toxic relationships, and chronic pain/chronic illness.

Erin is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and Certified Clinical Telemental Health Provider. She dedicates herself to developing a safe, relaxed environment in which people feel welcome to share at their own pace. Erin looks at counseling through a multidimensional lens, focusing on how all areas of wellness – emotional, cognitive, social, physical, and medical – impact a person. Working primarily with individuals aged 17+, she has a background of working with the following: depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, trauma, body image, grief, toxic relationships, and the struggles with people pleasing/perfectionism. Coming from a background in geriatric care, she is also adept in working with the unique emotional struggles related to chronic pain and illness. She utilizes an eclectic approach – which often incorporates elements from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) – that is tailored to each individual client. An important part of her approach is including support from others in the client’s personal (i.e., friends, family) and professional (i.e., physicians, dieticians, sleep specialists).
