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.

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.
