Hi, my name is Wes Erwin. I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Minnesota. I have provided counseling and supervision and taught in the area of mental health for over twenty years. I have a Ph.D. in Counseling and Human Development from The University of Iowa.
It is very important for me to listen and to understand what you want and need. Honest and genuine communication is the starting point in any healthy relationship. I believe a counselor needs to be flexible and different clients need different types of help. Trust, honesty, and hope are all important aspects in a counseling relationship.
My approach to counseling may be client centered, cognitive behavioral, or solution focused. I believe that attending to one’s environment and culture is important in understanding the whole person.
I look forward to working with you!

Dr. Erwin listened carefully to my concerns. He was respectful and showed interest into what I said. I feel that my conversations with him helped me overcome the challenge of the situation I was facing. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Erwin was great to work with, he helped me identify feelings I did not know were there and let me approach them at my own pace. I have had a great deal of growth in my short time with him. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a well qualified professional.
