  • SOMATIC-MINDED individuals SEEKING BALANCE

  • QUARTER-LIFE TRANSITIONS

A Few Words From Erin:

I often find myself reminding people, “It’s hard to be human”. Life is inevitably more messy and complicated than we’d like it to be. You don’t have to navigate this alone. I see our time together as a collaborative container for re-nourishment, re-grounding, and re-growth.

We all have different “doors” to wellness. I aim to provide a space that supports you in developing new practices for finding balance, and validates the practices you already know are supportive. My practice is client-centered and LGBTQIA affirming. As I approach our work together, I am informed by social justice principles, feminist therapy, a Health At Every Size approach to wellness, and the body’s wisdom.

Erin’s Educational Pathway to Private Practice:

Erin is currently working towards obtaining her Master’s degree in Applied Psychology from the University of Baltimore. Erin plans to seek licensure as an LCPC (Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor) following the completion of her graduate degree in 2020.
