Thank you for visiting my page! I have ten years of therapy experience working in community based organizations, university settings, an inpatient addiction treatment center, and private practice. I am a licensed clinical counselor in Illinois and California and have worked with families, individuals, groups, and couples throughout my experience.
I believe strongly in guiding a client in discovering their own intuition and sense of self in order to inform where we go in therapy. I practice an integrative approach to counseling, drawing from many therapies including cognitive behavioral, narrative therapy, solution focused, emotion focused, motivational interviewing, and psychodynamic perspectives. I am formally trained in trauma focused CBT, motivational interviewing, general trauma-informed care, brief strategic family therapy, and many other specific interventions. I use a perspective that includes incorporating trauma experience- no matter how big or small- to see a client's need for healing. I like to consider all parts of a person's life and how each part moves to create the patterns of behavior or emotion that each person experiences. I adapt my mode of therapy to fit each client's unique experience and ways of hearing information. I use my framework to look at a myriad of issues that can arise in life; I have the most experience with stress/anxiety issues, family conflict, relationship issues, trauma/abuse issues, transitional stress, loss, and issues that can result from cultural stress or loss.
I look forward to hearing from you and am open to discussing how I can help or how we can find someone who can.

Erin is a very perceptive person and a keen listener. I feel, with only two sessions, we have made a mountain of difference. I can see that she is results oriented and takes notes. She is always ready with insightful questions for me when I am stuck in my thoughts. I strongly recommend her.
