Hi, I am Erin McDaid. I have been working for over six years as a clinical therapist with adults, older adults, and older adolescents. I use a goal-oriented therapy style, focusing on areas of strength or need that are determined by the client. My style is no-nonsense and direct. I use a wide variety of skills and techniques including cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness therapy, trauma-informed therapy, and motivational interviewing. I often assign homework for clients to complete between therapy sessions (however, I try not to make it complex or overwhelming). I do not believe in stereotyping, labeling, or stigmatizing people. I welcome working with people of all faiths, genders, sexual orientations, political affiliations, and ethnicities.
At an initial interview clients should expect to discuss with me their background (how they grew up, what they have done since high school, any relationship status), their current symptoms, any drug or alcohol use or history, any legal history, and their hopes for what they will get from therapy. During this discussion I will work to clarify any questions that occur to me and to reassure the client that both the client and I are understanding the client’s needs and history. We will also discuss what the specific issues are that brought you to therapy. Be ready to be open and forthcoming. Clients may leave their initial session with a simple homework assignment that will begin to move them forward with their treatment.
Additional areas of focus: Relationship issues, Intimacy-related issues, Sleeping disorders, Parenting issues, Self esteem, Coping with life changes, Codependency, Communication Problems, Divorce and Separation, Domestic Violence, Jealousy, Mood Disorders, Polyamory / Nonmonogamous Relationships, Postpartum Depression, Self-Love, Sexuality, Women's Issues
Clinical approaches: Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Narrative Therapy

Erin was the perfect first therapist. She made me confident that if she wasn't the right fit, she would not be upset with me choosing someone else. She truly cares about what's best for her patients.
