Family Counseling, LLC
Erin joined Parkside Family Counseling in the fall of 2019. She earned both a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree from the University of Michigan. As a clinical social worker, Erin provides school-based mental health services for young students and their families at the Tecumseh Early Learning Centers and sees outpatient clients at Parkside. She utilizes an integrative and relational therapeutic approach that is collaborative, strengths-based, and trauma-informed. Based on the needs of each client, Erin incorporates evidence-based treatments that include cognitive-behavioral, interpersonal, solution-focused, and acceptance-based interventions as well as elements of psychoeducation and mindfulness-based practices. She works with clients coping with issues such as trauma, anxiety, depression and other mood-related concerns, perfectionism/rumination, and self-worth.
Erin’s clinical interests include: ADHD, giftedness, and twice-exceptional (2e) children, adolescents, and adults. In working with individuals with ADHD, Erin focuses not only on skill-building and social performance deficits, but also on the emotional components of living with a brain-based difference, which often goes undiagnosed in women and gifted individuals.
When Erin isn’t working at Parkside, you may find her reading, solving a crossword puzzle, at the theatre, riding her bike, or kayaking.
