I am a professional counselor, licensed in both New York and New Jersey. I hold a Master of Arts and Education Specialist degree in Professional Counseling. I have been working with individuals and families for over 8 years now in a variety of mental health settings. With each client, I utilize a strength-based, humanistic counseling perspective to help empower you to meet your goals, overcome any struggles you might be experiencing, and solve problems in healthy ways. By utilizing a strength-based approach in combination with teaching the powerful techniques of cognitive behavioral therapy, I hope to help you meet your goals while building on your self worth.
My multi-faceted mental health experience includes: treating individuals, couples and families in a mental health outpatient clinic, providing individual and family counseling to children/adolescents/young adults in private practice, treating adults in an inpatient substance abuse treatment program, and treating youth in an alternative to incarceration program. My primary passion is treating every client as unique in their own strengths and struggles and empowering each client to meet their personal goals.

Erin is a thoughtful, practical and caring counselor who listens to my concerns and isn't afraid to give me "tough love" when I need it, but is also compassionate. She is responsive and diligent and I'm lucky to have found her.

Erin has done a fantastic job of listening to my concerns and speaking to them with mentalities and various resources that I can refer to in a moment's notice. She also does a great job of checking in on previous issues discussed.
Erin is a great counselor. I have been working with her for about a year and followed her from one platform to another because of how much I feel I have grown with her. She is a kind and supportive counselor who looks at things from an objective non biased point of view, but in a professional yet emotionally supportive and comforting way. I cannot recommend her enough. She works with your schedule and really focuses on your needs. She works through things with you and gives you assignments to carry with you throughout your weeks apart.
Erin is wonderful! She has helped me through some tough times and I'm so grateful. She is very attentive and professional, and always there for me when I need to talk. She really listens and understands me!
Erin changed my life for the better.
Erin is very smart and very kind. I’ve only been on Better Help for a couple of weeks and I’ve gotten better help from her than I have from anyone else in my life. She knows how to make you understand your emotions better and the why you feel what you feel, in order to live a happier life in the long run

Erin is a WONDERFUL counselor. She is kind, patient, considerate and always responds in a timely manner. She breaks down your issues and makes sure you really understand what she is saying. She works with your way of coping and strategizing so it's fit for your needs. She has a way of being so kind but also giving you the honest truth. She really pours her heart into her sessions and I trust her with my heart. I use her advice and practices daily and wouldn't have grown like I have without her! She's the best and I couldn't speak more highly about her.
I am so happy I was paired with Erin; she is extremely responsive and understanding, and is always interested in what I have to say or how I feel.

I highly recommend her, I can tell she really cares about the work she does. She is really great!

Erin has made my first counseling experience a pleasantly fulfilling one! Sessions are always something I look forward to. My world looks brighter after each and every conversation with Erin. I feel excited again! Thank you Erin!
I've only spoken with Erin for a month now, but I really feel like she has helped me through some of my worst confidence issues I've had in my career to date. She's really patient and great at getting to the root of an issue and is also great with suggestions on how to get past negative thinking. Though I know that confidence issues are an uphill battle, I feel like I'm in a much better place since I've started speaking with her regularly than I was before I signed up for Better Health. She's awesome!
Erin is a gem. Super respectful, helpful, and considerate. Always has an intriguing question/thought. My best experience with a counselor.

Erin has been such a positive and encouraging presence in my life during a really difficult time. She has reminded me to focus on taking care of me and that pretty much everything I'm going through and feeling is normal and is ok and is part of a process that can take time. She has also recommended some really helpful and insightful articles and resources. Thanks, Erin!
Erin has been insightful, empowering and respectful. I feel comfortable talking with her and it's clear that she reads my messages carefully and takes the time to respond to each issue I mention.
