About Me

Hi! I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker with over 5 years of experience working as a therapist, as well as having a wide variety of different life experiences that I integrate into my therapeutic practice. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, Bi-Polar Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorders, LGTBQ+, parenting problems, family issues and relationship issues. I have also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma and/or emotional abuse, and I use trauma informed care when needed.

My therapy style is warm, interactive, compassionate, honest and empathetic. I use humor at times (appropriately) in my therapeutic approach as I believe sometimes laughter is the best medicine and therapy can be fun. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and unconditional positive regard. I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach is eclectic and personalized, with the use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing, among others. I will tailor our treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I believe that the therapist and the client work together as a team in many aspects and I am here to support you in your therapy journey.

It takes a lot of courage to start a journey in therapy and to take the first step to begin change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Erin Hutchinson, MSW, LICSW

Erin is wonderful. She’s lovely and has a good sense of humor. She’s a great listener and has help so much in this short time.
I consider myself lucky to have been matched with a therapist like Erin.

I've struggled before finding a therapist that can actually understand the level I'm already at and run with me at that speed. This is the first time I've ever felt like I could actually get the help I need in the areas I feel are problematic, not just the general issues and programs that they believe are most problematic. I genuinely feel heard for once.
