Hi there! My name is Erin Lae, and I am a California licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, as well as a Massachusetts licensed Mental Health Counselor. I have over fifteen years of counseling experience in a variety of settings, which helps me to be confident and flexible in offering different approaches to best suit your needs. As a military spouse, I have had the opportunity to practice in different communities all over the country and gain expertise in a variety of areas including, relationships, addiction, anxiety, depression, and trauma. Typically, I use a combination of motivational interviewing and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), but I am also very comfortable with dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), solution focused brief therapy (SFBT) and client-centered therapy. I use elements of all of these approaches to tailor my approach to meet the specific needs and goals of each client.
I like to view myself as my client's “Google Maps”. I won't tell you where to go, but I can help you choose a destination and outline some steps to get there. I will be there along the way, gently guiding you back on course when needed. Regardless of what methods I am using, I always bring a straightforward and caring approach and use my sense of humor to help make the overall counseling experience a positive one. I believe that creating a space where you feel comfortable sharing your truth is a cornerstone to creating lasting change and success. As a result, I will work hard to foster and maintain this kind of environment throughout the process. Let’s see what we can accomplish together!

She's amazing. She listens and tries to be fair on her response so I can see the light.
