Well into the 21st centuries, life has become faster and in many ways“easier” – the world is a click away – yet the demands have grown too. We are expected to be efficient, confident, independent and yet connected, relaxed, free. Contradicting expectations leave us confused, tense, dissatisfied ad it is difficult to navigate through vague routes. Against this background noise, we juggle relationships, families, work, friendships and sometimes the difficulties of the process become unmanageable. At times our struggle might take the shape of a psychological disorder: OCD, anxiety, depression; more often we feel confused or exhausted.

I have also been fortunate enough to have worked with a number of different presentations including depression, anxiety, personality disorders, phobias, psychosis, bipolar disorder, and OCD.
Hi! I'm Erin. Thanks so much for taking the time to read my profile. I always wanted to be a psychologist since I was 12 years old. I even remember the exact spot I was standing when I told my friend that I wasn't sure I would do it because the amount of education required took too long! My hesitation did not last long after I took International Baccalaureate level Psychology in High School and fell in love. Then there was no turning back and after a BA in Psychology, an MSc in Child Development, I completed my doctoral degree and became a psychologist.
