Erin is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor who enjoys working with clients using Solution Focused Therapy and Narrative Therapy to find creative solutions to problems and to discover new ways of looking at life’s challenges.
As a fluent Spanish speaker (Spanish is her second language, learned while living in Chile), Erin completed her Masters of Science in Counseling Psychology at Our Lady of the Lake University, which specializes in training bilingual therapists to be culturally competent in their work with Latino clients. She has experience working with immigration issues and stress, families adjusting to life in a new home, and trauma.
Erin enjoys working with individual adults and adolescents, couples, families, and groups. As an adjunct professor at DMACC and sometimes at Drake University, she also understands the pressures facing college students and enjoys working with them to reach their full potential. She also has experience working with chronic pain patients.
She believes that people are always capable of change; one of her first questions to you might be about what changes you’ve noticed since deciding to come to therapy. She is committed to using evidence-based treatment and to providing effective treatment to her clients.
Erin loves counseling and teaching, but also spends a lot of time with her two young sons, whom she homeschools. In her spare time she practices yoga, binge-watches the occasional show, and tries to read books she never finished in college.
