Erin is a Umass Dartmouth Alumni who received a Bachelor's of Art undergraduate degree in Sociology with a concentration in Social Work and a Master's of Social Work from Rhode Island College. She has worked in the human service field for over 20 years. Erin also has a private practice and works full time for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. She has experience working with individuals, families and couples, does crisis management and has provided sensitivity training. Additionally, Erin has specialized training in CBT, DBT, Skill System and NOVA (National Organization for Victim's Assistance). She works with trauma survivors and folks who have lost all hope. Erin hopes students will get to know her as a genuine person who believes we often do not control what happens to us but we absolutely control how we will handle that. Learning how to handle life's twists and turns, stressors and traumas is a skill, and we continue to grow that skill over time, experience and teaching. She hopes to be there to grow and learn with you.
