Hello and thank you for having enough courage and honesty to take the first big step. My name is Erlynn and I have a Master’s in Social Work, concentration in Individuals, Families and Groups from San Francisco. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of California since 2015. I received a BA in Psychology, emphasis in Clinical and Developmental Psychology from Santa Cruz. I have 20 plus years of experience in the mental health field. I have worked across a continuum of care from residential, sub-acute day treatment programs, and hospitals focusing on mental health issues, probation, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, family dynamics and conflicts. I have experience working with infants/toddlers, children, adolescents, young adults, people with disabilities, and the elderly. I believe that the first step of healing is self-discovery and the development of personal goals to overcome challenges. My intentions are to instill hope and inspiration and to empower you to be able to move on to a more fulfilling life. Remember that You are resilient and determined to change for the positive. My purpose is to provide a safe space and non-judgmental environment. If you’re ready, I’ll be here to support you!

Erlynn is compassionate and empathetic, and has a wonderful sense of humor. She also has a talent for steering you to finding your own solutions to your problems, as opposed to inserting her own views upon you. :)

She is very friendly and lets me see what I need to say. She does not interrupt me and I enjoy talking with her.

I was extremely apprehensive about trying therapy again after multiple failed attempts in the past (combination of anxiety getting in the way or having a wrong fit), but I am so glad I took the leap and came here. I was matched with Erlynn and within a couple sessions felt comfortable enough with her to be more open than I'd even been in therapy. She makes me feel safe and supported. I really appreciate her counseling style. Because of working with her I have stayed in therapy longer than I ever have before. Thank you!
