2 years of experience

Welcome! My name is Erin! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in North Carolina and I use the pronouns she/her/hers. I have been in the field of social work for a total of 8 years between internships and post-masters work and landed in the world of therapy for the last 2 years. I graduated with my Masters degree from the University of NC- Greensboro and NC A&T Joint Program.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

The first session is all about getting to know each other! I will get ask questions to learn about your background, what led you to therapy now and get and idea of the whole picture. We will also discuss what your goals are for therapy and begin to brainstorm ideas on how you would like to achieve these. Don’t feel intimidated by this. I don’t have to know EVERYTHING about you in the first session and we don’t have to have your goals all figured out. This session is just the starting point.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I have a diverse background working in many settings such as DSS, DV shelters, crisis response teams, community mental health, facility based crisis/detox, inpatient mental health, and outpatient therapy. Working in an array of setting has allowed me to develop a skillset to assist you in the journey you have chosen to achieve your goals set for therapy.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy aids clients challenge reoccurring thoughts and manage their anxiety. This modality also can assist for identifying triggers and emotions associated with intrusive thoughts and behaviors. We’ll use CBT to recognize how your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors influence each other. Once we have gained that foundational knowledge, we can use it to "flex" your thinking patterns, which will help you lead a less anxious and stressed life.

Motivational Interviewing

Motivational Interviewing is not only used to gain more insight into the topics in which you have already presented into the therapy room for that session but also identify any ambivalence you are currently experiencing. Once identified, I will work with you to aid in feeling empowered to make wanted changes in your life.


Narrative therapy is a form of therapy that views you, what's troubling you, and your destructive behaviors as separates. This allows you to have some distance from the difficulty you are facing and evaluate if this coping skill is protecting or harming you. We will discuss your events, past or present as stories.
