My expertise is in supporting children, adolescents, and transition-age young adults with stress, grief and loss, major adjustments and transitions, and anxiety and mood disorders.
I have a passion for connecting with my clients on an interpersonal level. My counseling philosophy is that therapy should first and foremost be a safe space for you to express any of your emotions and experiences. I pride myself in being a non-judgmental and receptive counselor. I practice a relaxed therapy style that focuses on processing and emotion identification with a trauma-informed approach. I also include CBT and DBT skills where appropriate. I enjoy adding non-verbal approaches to processing, including the use of play, art, and creative expression.

Hello, I'm Erin, a licensed marriage and family therapist. I understand the stress and anxiety parenting can cause, especially when balancing life's demands becomes overwhelming. If your child's behaviors feel out of control or they have received a recent diagnosis, I can help. For the past 12 years, I have empowered hundreds of families struggling with parenting challenges - from daily pressures to major diagnoses like Autism. I recognize the immense grief, anxiety, depression, and isolation a diagnosis or a child with behavioral challenges can bring and how it affects the whole family.

I am ready to help you, or your child and family, find relief.
"Anything that’s human is mentionable, and anything that is mentionable can be more manageable. When we can talk about our feelings, they become less overwhelming, less upsetting, and less scary" (Fred Rogers). Taking care of your mental health is often the hardest but most valuable work you’ll ever do. I work with children, adolescents, and adults who are struggling to express themselves in healthy or effective ways, who have been through painful experiences, or who need to find new ways to cope.
