About me

Hi, I am Erin, I am a licensed counselor in the state of Maryland. I help children, adolescents, adults, caregivers, and people wanting to grow their families. I have a wealth of experience, training, and knowledge in many areas, and my goals are to work with my client to reach their highest potential.

My therapeutic approach is focused on a collaborative effort to identify individual strengths and needs, develop meaningful goals, and to explore the necessary steps to attain those goals. My approach leads to increased self-esteem, learning, and attaining the supports that are out there — and teaching you to learn how to transition to a positive lens.

I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD and ADHD. I believe treatment should be as unique as your situation. And I will utilize eclectic methods to help you reach your fullest potential. I am a believer that each case should be treated as each client is unique and therefore utilizes an eclectic source of techniques.

When working with children as young as four, I believe that parent involvement is essential, and likes to work with both the parents and the child individually and in a group setting. This may include adding in siblings or other family members so everyone can work as a whole to benefit the child and family.

I want my clients to learn how to control their negative self-talk, and therefore, will utilize cognitive-behavioral strategies.

I also do not shy away from multisensory and tactile work with her younger clientele.

I am only providing messaging and live messaging services and occasional phone sessions. If this is something that you were interested in I am so happy to work with you. I will be checking in Monday through Friday.

I can't wait to begin our work together!

So far so good! I literally was on my last leg with trying to see if therapy was even right for me. I really needed guidance in this new territory; Erin provided & still provides that guidance. She’s very engaging, and utilises the BetterHelp materials that best help me, and encourages critical thinking. I’m grateful to have Erin as a therapist.
