Approach

Erin works from a client-centered and strengths-based approach.  This emphasizes the importance of the client-counselor relationship, while creating a warm and safe space for the client.  She collaborates with the client to identify their own strengths and how to utilize those during sessions to create change within their lives.  While working together, Erin will identify techniques that may be beneficial for each client to create their own unique treatment plan.  These techniques will most often be derived from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Mindfulness.
