About Me

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.

(Please note that when we get started- it could take up to 24 hours to first hear from me-thank you!)

Erin is the best counselor I ever had. She listens, gives appropriate advice and leads you to the right thinking pattern. I would recommend Erin and Better Help services to everyone I know!

I've debated starting online counseling for the better part of a year. I would always start the process and never finish until I finally put myself first and got paired with Erin Yurchenko.

When I discuss my issues I feel heard and confident that I'll be able to make progress. She gives me tools that allow me to continue moving forward and I couldn't be more grateful. I'd recommend Erin to anyone struggling with any of her areas of expertise. She's been extremely helpful in the short time I've been doing online counseling and has made me feel very hopeful.

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.

She's awesome!
