She's amazing. She listens, guides gently, helps you explore things you have kept locked up since eons. She's the reason I've been with BetterHelp for over a year now. I feel so much better since I started working on myself, discovering me, and having the support I've always needed and never found before.

Erin is kind, helpful and communicative

Erin is a complete gem of a human being! When I matched with Erin and we had our first session, I knew that we were going to connect easily. Erin is an easy person to open up to and does so on your timeline. Erin has given me the tools to manage and identify my S.A triggers.. and I have learned so much about my own triggers and bodily responses that I wasn’t aware of before. I now have a much better understanding of myself, my boundaries, and what I need during times of stress and anxiety. She has also helped me greatly with managing my ADHD through different tips, tricks, and resources. Erin overall is such a caring listener, a cheerleader, and asks thought provoking questions that push you in the right direction!

Erin is wonderful. Her skill set is great. Her feedback is always just what I need to hear. I’m thankful for her. I recommend Better Help several times a week.

I'm having such a great experience with Erin. I went through a few councillors before finding her and it's been exactly what I need. She has such a big heart and is really helping me to heal.

When I first signed up for BetterHelp, I was reluctant to take the plunge. However, after being marched and having read Erin's biography I immediately felt a warmth and care so I took a chance. Thank goodness I did. Erin has been so genuine, responsive and thoughtful throughout this whole process, always going above and beyond whenever she can. I am so grateful to have had her as a support these last few months.

Erin is an amazing counselor.
Each meeting i had with her, she pointed at something I could not see by myself.
She pushes me up all the time, listens carefully and never judges.
It makes me happy to know i have a meeting with her and gives it me great confidence in myself to solve the things I want to solve
Many thanks Erin !

Erin has been my counsellor for a few months, and I really enjoy working with her. I had felt very stuck with a confusing and overwhelming amount of emotions and anxiety for a while when we met. Erin is really positive and from the first session she gave me the confidence that I was going to get out of my feelings of being overwhelmed!

Erin encouraged me to journal and use the chat function frequently, to which she responds quickly. The chat function was new to me, but using it really showed me the power of frequent contact as I feel like Erin got to know me quicker and was able to provide support better and more often. During our sessions, Erin offers many easy practical techniques, which I found simple to integrate and slowly build on each other. She also occassionally sends inspiring prompts for journalling and interesting articles on mental health techniques.

Overall, Erin is really helping me gain insights in my anxiety and understand how it arises and how to prevent/mitigate!

Erin is so kind, compassionate and warm. I always looked forward to my video sessions and was able to find a lot of clarity throughout them. I’m incredibly grateful and would definitely recommend Erin to anyone looking to navigate through life with a bit more ease.

Written on Jul 07, 2021 after therapy with Erin for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Erin has been very helpful to me as I navigate separation from my husband. She offers me ways to examine the difficult times I am going through and helps me understand the unfamiliar feelings I am feeling, and how to make sense of everything. Her neutral guidance helps me look at the events that hurt me with less emotion, but she also has helped me understand that if I don't feel the feelings I have I can't move past them, and that's important.

Written on May 27, 2021 after therapy with Erin for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Erin was a really good listener and made me feel comfortable talking about different issues without feeling judged. She offered some invaluable advice, pointed me towards useful resources and checked in with me regularly to see how I was and also provide encouragement. I would definitely recommend her to others.
