About me

Hello, my name is Erin and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Wisconsin. I earned my Master's Degree in Social Work from Syracuse University. I have been practicing for over 20yrs in a variety of settings and absolutely love being a social worker. Some of the areas I have provided therapy includes individuals challenged by addictions, shame, loss, personality disorders, criminal charges, suicidal ideation, and veteran related issues . I truly appreciate being able to use my knowledge and experience to help others help themselves as well as feel honored to be invited into the lives of others. My practice flows an active listening, strengths based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy approach with experience with Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Trauma Informed Care.

In my life and in my practice, I try to be as open minded and accepting of others as possible. I appreciate people for being who they are and I look forward to meeting you!

I’ve had 3 sessions with Erin so far. She has eased so many fears of mine about therapy. She’s an excellent listener. I’m actually excited to continue therapy now. I feel myself climbing out of the hole I was in.

Erin is very knowledgeable and thoughtful about how she approaches therapy sessions. She helps put things into perspective while not being critical about the things you’re going through.

Erin and I have just started working together. In our short time I have been provided information for new skills, literature to read as well as helpful tools to incorporate into my daily life. Erin listens carefully and knows how to keep the conversation going even when I tend to jump all over. Very pleased with our time so far and looking forward to the future.

Erin is a gem - the total package. She is an amazing listener, gives excellent advice. Her expectations are are extremely realistic. From our first interaction, I could immediately tell that she cared about me, whether it was our mutual love of cats or that she genuinely cares about her patients. I simply adore and would highly recommend her.
