About me

I am licensed in Oregon and Utah with 10 years of professional work experience. I am a licensed Therapist in Oregon and Utah with a background in Clinical Social Work from Columbia University. I am a contracted provider with Pacific Source OHP. I have experience in helping clients with Complex Trauma, stress and anxiety, LGBTQIA+ related issues, relationship issues, and various forms of abuse and abuse recovery. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I will tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am happy to be here to support you in that process.

My counseling style is pretty laid back. I have been described as supportive, caring, and compassionate, with a pretty good sense of humor. I like to focus on identifying your strengths and helping you to maximize them to overcome your obstacles. I'm here to help you sort through the things that are difficult right now, and offer you a safe place to be open and honest without fear of judgment. You have taken the first and most important step by reaching out for help.

I'm sorry you are having a tough time right now, but I'm really glad you are reaching out. I'd like to help you work on the struggles you are facing; and offer you a safe place to explore your thoughts and feelings.

First session was really great. She took a whole lot of weight off my shoulders. Better than I expected since it was my first counseling.

Erin has been fantastic, both in her deep knowledge of therapeutic practices and emotional needs, but also in her ability to connect on a personal level. My sessions with her have very literally revitalized my day following therapy.

Erin is awesome. I am a direct-approach person. Erin is able to ask me the uncomfortable questions and despite that it is tough to answer, she helps me come out of it and reflect back. Major respect.
