Psychologist

About

I know from family, friends and clients how overwhelming and confusing it can be when you are trying to find help. It is my goal to be as transparent as possible about the therapeutic process and what it would look like to work with me so that you can determine if we'd be a good fit. It is a brave step you are taking--seeking help so that you get more enjoyment out of your one life--I do not want feelings of overwhelm to get in the way of someone taking that first step towards a more peaceful life.

I have a strong commitment to evidence based treatments--it is not enough for therapy to FEEL good in the short term, it must WORK and be effective in the long term. As such, I use a cognitive behavioral approach with a preference for skill building so that you feel equipped to manage stress, be effective interpersonally, and find acceptance and contentment within you.

My clients describe me as being warm, enthusiastic, nonjudgmental, curious, emotive and direct. Clients who choose to work with me want to take an active role in therapy--together we make goals, choose next steps, and measure our progress to make sure that our time together is working for YOU.

Lastly, I want to say that I'm very optimistic that relief, acceptance, contentment and joy are possible for everyone. Whether you've had some unfortunate life circumstances or are biologically-wired to be prone to anxiety and depression, clinical researchers have developed some amazing and effective therapies/skills to help you feel better.  Be hopeful!

Overall     
Erin is straight to the point yet is genuine and caring.
Just getting started, and super thankful for her prompt replies, and for informing me exact times when she'll be online!
Erin Parks helped me figure out a lot more about myself and she was very patient and kind. She made me very comfortable since I haven't talked to anyone like this before.
Very good so far!
Erin is a gentle, caring therapist. She lets you express your true feelings and thoughts without trying to change the subject or hurry up the process. But most of all, she is a professional. She educates you and shares the knowledge with you in an easy-to-digest way, and I think that education during therapy is essential to understand what we're going through and recover. She's empathetic, concise and objective. I'm glad I found her. :)
