About Me

Hello and welcome! Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me and the services I offer. My name is Erin Wilson and I have been working in the mental health field for 9 years. My passion for this field is rooted in personal experience. As a person who participates in therapy, I believe sharing some of the same experiences as those I work with provides a genuine authenticity in my ability to be present for the people I am honored to help. I believe therapy can be empowering, fun and healing at the same time.

I started my career in the counseling field as an intern at hospice and then worked as a therapist in helping families heal after the death of a loved one. Life then presented the opportunity for me to work in the field of substance abuse at a methadone clinic and a community mental health facility providing intensive outpatient treatment. While working with families seeking reunification, I began to also teach parenting skills. I was then lead into the role of a family therapist working with children, teens and families. My previous experience before coming to BetterHelp was as a supervisor helping other new therapists begin their journey of service and development. Looking back, I must say I am so grateful and honored to have grown from such a variety of experiences with so many amazing people. Now I am embracing this new adventure of providing telemed services to meet the needs of our changing times.

In session what you can expect from me? I will honor you and your uniqueness. I will be dedicated to assisting you in discovering inner strengths and finding ways to bring forth your strengths in practical ways so you can succeed in meeting your goals in life. I see my role as someone who is there to listen non-judgmentally and provide unconditional acceptance. When asked, I can share my perspective in a way that is helpful to your unique needs. My goal is to create an environment where you feel comfortable exploring yourself. Some people benefit from learning specific techniques and/or homework assignments between sessions and I can provide those. Others may prefer not to have homework and that is okay. By working together, I believe we can create a therapeutic relationship that works best for you. I will inquire for feedback about what the session was like for you and be open to making any changes I may need to make sure therapy is as helpful as possible.

In sessions what I do I expect of you? For therapy to be effective, I believe honesty and an openness to perceiving yourself and life in new ways is essential. Through the years I have seen people who make different choices in how they live life outside of the session as the most successful.

In my view, it is the power of the relationship we build together that makes a way for discovery, learning, healing and positive change to happen. My journey in the therapy field has provided many miraculous experiences being a part of positive change in the lives of others. I hope to have the opportunity to be a part of this process with you!

I have only had one session with Erin so far, but I will be booking another session. I felt safe talking to her. She listened well and had good insights and suggestions. I would definitely recommend!

Written on Aug 19, 2022 after therapy with Erin for 5 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship issues, family conflicts, self esteem, and career difficulties

Erin is amazing! She really listens to what I have to say and gives me the space in sessions to talk about what's going on. She has good advice and shows me a different way to think about a situation. I really enjoy my sessions with Erin, and appreciate that she checks in on how the session went because sometimes it can be hard and that couple minutes to kind of reflect and talk about how everything went is nice.

I've only had a couple sessions with Erin but already I feel so comfortable being completely vulnerable and transparent about myself. She listens without interruption, holds space with compassion and empathy ❤️ ✨️
I don't feel judgment nor shame about how I'm feeling or my situation, sharing with Erin is safe!
I always leave the sessions feeling lighter, instead of heavier.

I’ve only been seeing Erin for about 2 months but I’m already very thankful to have been paired with her. She is an extremely thoughtful and compassionate listener but also doesn’t hesitate to point out when I’m thinking illogically or in a way that’s causing me distress. This is all essential in being an effective therapist and there are so many other ways Erin has displayed her expertise and genuine care for me and equip me with tools to help myself as well

I absolutely adore Erin. She literally listens and takes heeds to the things I’m going through. I never feel uncomfortable with sharing some of the daunting things I go through or have done. And there is always a solution to every problem. I absolute appreciate the fact that she doesn’t try to relate to what I’m going through “oh I have gone through XYZ” or try to fabricate a relatable story. As if people can’t tell it’s a bluff. I’m grateful to have stumbled on BetterHelp and Erin.
