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!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Erin Wilson. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
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
Erin is extremely compassionate. She listens deeply to everything I have to say, and is constantly asking me questions that make me feel heard and understood.
Kind, caring, thoughtful and considerate
Working with Erin is great! She really listens to me and makes me feel safe and comfortable when we are talking. I really like that at the end of sessions she checks in with how it went and how I am feeling before we finish our session to make sure I'm okay.
I like Erin and she is challenging me.
She is amazing. very patient and has lots of resources.
Erin is compassionate, supportive and a great listener. She gives practical tools that you can use to reach your goals.

Erin has been wonderful so far. She’s a great listener and has provided different POVs for situations I am facing.
Erin is fantastic. She listens carefully to my issues and gives me really helpful guidance on how to improve my mental well-being. I would recommend her to anyone looking for quality therapy sessions.
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.
I’ve spent years looking for a therapist that would actually listen until Erin and I met. I couldn’t ask for anyone better!
Erin has been a blessing to me and my wellness journey! She took the time to first understand what I am looking for out of these sessions, then she listens, asks thoughtful questions, and provides exercises for possible solutions. I feel hopeful for the first time in a long time thanks to her coaching!
Erin is an excellent grief counselor. She helped me work through the process and also helped me understand the root causes of my depression. I strongly recommend her.
Erin is so sweet and helpful. She knows what to do and how to help. Even though I've been like an onion with layers. But she knows.
I love how down to earth and practical Erin is. She's been great at helping me reframe the world and live my life according to my values rather than reacting ti everything around me.
She is the best and super supportive. I haven't felt this secure and confident since the pandemic started.
Erin is a compassionate and attentive mental health professional. Her diverse background and unique insights enables a holistic approach to therapy. I have made great strides even within the short amount of time that I have known her. I highly recommend Erin!
Great counselor! Very comforting and educated.
Erin is so kind and understanding! This was my first time getting counseling and I’m glad i got her. She knows when to listen and what to say to help you out. Truly a great counselor
It’s taken a couple of tries to find a therapist to connect to. I’m so happy I found Erin.
After one session with Erin, I felt comfortable with her. Right from the get go she makes you feel comfortable and listens. She then builds from what you share and challenges you - which is what I need - to get started to better times. Thank you Erin.
I highly recommend Erin! She's very responsive, guiding me in creating goals, and giving me several tools to use in my daily life when things are tough. I always feel like she listens to me and remembers the things that are important to me. I was nervous at first about trying therapy, but now that I've worked with Erin, I would definitely recommend therapy to others. It has made a big difference in my life.
Working with Erin has been wonderful she provides expert suggestions in guidance when dealing with anxiety and depression. I highly recommend her as a therapist. She is a very good listener and always available when you need her
I think it’s pretty awesome to be able to find the right therapist and not be restricted to distance. Love how quickly she responds and the video messaging is awesome. Need helping and having support constantly available has been a blessing
She’s a great listener
