Hi, I'm Erin. 

I graduated from the University of Illinois with a master's in social work and specialize in working with children and adolescents. 

I work to create a space and develop a relationship where kids and teens can feel unconditionally accepted at this moment in time for exactly who they are.  I believe it is within this positive relationship where change can occur. Together we will work towards resolving conflicts and presenting issues and develop coping skills that will last a lifetime.  

Erin practices at the Champaign Location.

We All Want Our Children To Be Happy

It seems like everyone else’s child has it all together and you can feel scared and alone.  It feels like the situation is never going to get better and you worry constantly about the future of your child.  You never thought you would be in this place and you can’t seem to find your way out. All you want to do is help your child. As a parent, one of the most difficult tasks we face is to watch our children and teens struggle.  Parenting an adolescent who is struggling with anxiety, depression or behavior can you leave feeling like you failed.

We all want our children to be happy and free from pain.  We want to have positive relationships with our teens and enjoy spending time with each other.  We remember when their face would light up at the sight of us and they would leap into our arms. We strive to have that type of connection with our children again.
