Understanding a persons story is the foundation to healing. I have over 20 years experience with a bachelor degree in psychology and a master degree in social work. I am a license clinical social worker and licensed independent social worker (LCSW, LISW) . I have been married for 42 years and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. My husband is a retired United States Marine and we have lived from coast to coast. I am also a play therapist and have worked with children as young as 2 years old. Therefore, I enjoy working with parents who may be struggling with parenting issues. I work with people with trauma, sexual abuse, depression, anxiety, stress, relationship struggles, thinking errors, etc. I understand the unique issues that military families may face and enjoy working with them. I use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), client centered therapy and therapy based in grounded theory. I am a kind, straight forward therapist who believes people have the answers and strength within. I am lucky enough to have people trust me, and let me into their life, so that I may help them achieve their goals. I look forward to working with you.

Erin has helped me get through the grieving process of critical issues. She is patient even when we talk about the same things while I'm healing. She has a wealth of knowledge to help my case and helps me grow from my circumstances.
I strongly recommend Erin without a moment’s hesitation. She has been just exactly the type of counselor I need. She is one of the most kind and caring people I’ve met, but tough. She knows b.s. when she hears it and calls me on it. She challenges me when I need to be challenged. She congratulates and celebrates me when I find my strength and courage. She has never told me what to do, but rather helped me to find my own true path and then trust it. I have made/am making it through a very difficult time in my life thanks to Erin’s help.
I’ve had a handful of therapists throughout the course of my life. Erin is hands down the best one I’ve had. It was true luck and timing that I found her. She is unpredictable (in a good way), flexible, and respects where I am at in my life and with my problems each time we meet. She is the perfect combination of proactive, understanding and gentle.
I give Erin Vasquez my highest recommendation. I have never interacted with a counselor who was more insightful, caring, or thoughtful. She is a very gifted listener, and she has helped me with many different areas of my life since our very first session.
She is awesome. She is for people who are okay with direct communication. I really like her.
I have finished my recent therapy with Erin, and all I can say is you need to talk to her! She has been absolutely amazing and I will return to her if I have anything else come up in life. I'm going to miss you Erin!
Having the opportunity to work with Erin has been absolutely amazing. She has an amazing ability to guide and work through so much of what you throw at her! Love working with her!
Erin was incredibly well-matched to my concern. She is very professional but very accessible at the same time. In the end I found a friend not just a counselor. Our relationship was short-lived, mainly due to her guidance. She gave me just the tools I needed to get me through, probably, the toughest thing I ever had to do in my life. My whole family benefits. Thanks Erin, for your direction and no beating around the bush attitude. You saw what I needed and your expertise and counsel gave me my life back.
I have only met with Erin via video chat a couple of times so far but she seems to understand my concerns and pushes me to open up in just the right amount. She also takes the time to text me if she thinks that I'm not doing well between sessions. I would definitely recommend her to a friend or family member. I usually don't write reviews but you, Erin, earned it.
Erin has been incredible for me. On our very first session she brought to my attention and put some names to problems and feelings that I have been having for a very long time. I definitely had a "breakthrough" moment with her, during our first counseling session. It is very easy to open up to her and feel supported, comforted, and cared about. Excited to continue our counseling and relationship.
Erin is so great! She has made me feel comfortable, and is understanding and personable. I wish I would have found her months ago!
I have only been working with Erin a short while, but so far I’m very impressed. She has already shown more insight into what I want to work on than other professionals in the past. She is compassionate and understanding.
I am so glad that I found Betterhelp.com, and was then matched with the amazing Erin Vasquez. I needed help ASAP, and I was put in contact with Erin within 24-hours. She is a PERFECT match for me - more than I ever could have hoped for. We had our first phone session within 2 days. I didn't think she would be able to make a significant impact in the first hour-long session, but I left that session feeling better than I had in weeks. I was then completely blown-away by her responsiveness in the following days as she continued to helped me through some very difficult issues. Although we are not in the same state, it has made absolutely no difference. Betterhelp was the best choice for me for several reasons: 1) I got help immediately. I had tried to find a local therapist and was told I couldn't get in for several months! 2) I can message Erin at any time, and she will respond as soon as possible. I can schedule as many live sessions as I need/want through out the month. The traditional meeting with a local therapist only once a week would not have been as effective for me. 3) It's affordable and a great value!
I love how warm and friendly she is. I love how inviting she is and how she makes me feel and find my strength I never realized. She's such a great therapist.
