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!

Erin is a very thoughtful and considerate therapist. Her friendly, yet professional, demeanor puts you at ease and makes it easier to share whatever you’re going through. Her insights are excellent and she works with you to find possible solutions to your particular situation instead of telling you what to do. I could not recommend her more.

Me and Erin have just started our journey as counselor and counselee. She is very supportive and she will tune in to what you communicate you need. She cares and really wants to help you. I knew she was the real deal from our first conversation. She is non judgemental and easy to talk to. For someone with no previous therapy or therapist she is making it easy to open up.

Erin has been such a point of stability for me through some extremely hard times. She gives gentle support while cultivating independence and emotional stability so that I can feel confident in making positive decisions for myself. She is great at keeping the mood light while identifying issues and patterns that should be addressed. I have recommended her to several of my friends.

She is fantastic and really gracious when talking about sensitive topics. She only offers messaging which may be a downside to some, but it is a massive plus for me. Would highly recommend her.

Written by B.R. on Jan 26, 2021 after therapy with Erin for 5 days on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and coping with life changes

In the short time that I have been working with Erin, I know that she is the perfect match for me. I love that she reassures me and continues to point out how much I am growing. Erin checks in with me throughout the day and asks about things we have previously talked about. She also doesn't mind if you send her multiple messages in a row and always lets you know if she will be offline for an extended period of time. I have loved working with Erin thus far, and I can't wait to continue!
