About me

Hi, I am Erin McDaid. I have been working for over eight 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, narrative 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.

I have had a few sessions with Erin and I am so thankful she is my therapist! Erin is understanding, supportive, kind and everything you could ask for in a therapist. Erin provides so many techniques that I have enjoyed! She is amazing and I can’t wait to keep working with her!

I've never thought about trying therapy, until a recent job issue caused some extreme stress. Better help was suggested by one of my YouTube friends. And so I thought I'd give it a try. I was paired with Erin McDaid, she was very helpful and listened to my concerns. She also suggested a solution for some situations that where difficult for me. I would say that Erin is perfectly paired for me.

Erin is insightful and brings constructive and supportive suggestions to our sessions. I don’t feel like she is reading from a script. She gives me her full attention and has really helped me think “around” some situations and experiences.
