Erin Klein


About Me

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.

I have been to therapy before and always felt like I was spinning my wheels! Erin has finally helped me in a way that not only am I dealing and understand the issues that I came to therapy for but ones I thought I had dealt with years ago! She has helped me more in the past year then anyone else in the past 26 years. Thank you

Erin is the most kind, generous and open minded therapist I’ve ever come across. She has helped me in more ways I could think of, and would recommend her to every person I know. Do yourself a favor and talk to Erin!

Erin is a good listener because she recalls detail and history she is not offensive but rather intuitive in her remarks and suggestions. I really like her

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.
