Hi there, my name is Erin, and I’m based in California. With over 12 years of experience as a social worker, I’ve worked with people from all walks of life during times of struggle. I hold a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree in Social Work from Clark Atlanta University with a focus on Health/Mental Health. I understand that finding a counselor you feel comfortable speaking with can be difficult, but my approach is empathetic and supportive. Clients have told me that they find me to be nonjudgmental, relatable, and honest. I have extensive experience working with clients dealing with Relationship issues, Family conflict, Anger management, Self-esteem, Career difficulties, Women’s issues, Spirituality, and Coping with life changes.

If you’re looking for a counselor of color or Christian counseling, I could be a good match for you. I’m also experienced and comfortable working with LGBTQ+ issues. I believe in meeting you where you are and am available via phone, video, and text, depending on your preference. While I’m primarily available in the evenings and on weekends, I’m flexible and can arrange daytime sessions if needed. I love my work and look forward to helping people learn more about themselves as they navigate through life. Let’s work together to reduce the stigma of mental illness and empower one another.
