Hello and welcome! My name is Erin Wilson and I have been working in the mental health field for 10 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 providing Hospice services. Then I moved to substance abuse treatment, next working with families and children. Before moving to telemedicine, I worked as a supervisor helping other therapists work toward their goals. 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.
In session what you can expect from me? 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 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!

After years of having Erin as a therapist we have to part ways due to my relocation. I’m bittersweet because while nothing ever lasts forever, I’m glad I’ll be able to independently put all we’ve worked on together to practice. 10/10 recommended for trauma victims who suffer with PTSD.

Erin is a gentle and kind soul. We connected on a level that really helped me trust and open in an authentic way. I appreciated all the reflection and summarization that Erin provided to help me organize my mind around my different issues. Each therapy session helped me feel that I was going in the right direction. Thank you Erin!

Erin has helped me overcome the fears and trauma that have held me back for years. I am learning to trust myself and be brave because of the tools Erin has provided me. I am on my way to building the life I want to live, without Erin I don't think I would be where I am today.
