Erin Burns, LCPC, Associate Clinical Director, Inner Courage Counseling
In a world where mental health is often stigmatized, society can leave us feeling judged and misunderstood. Reaching out for help during a difficult time requires significant strength and courage. My passion as a therapist is to facilitate growth in clients, assisting them in accessing the strength they already possess within, while supporting them as they work towards personal growth in an empathic, nonjudgmental, and welcoming environment.In order to accomplish clients’ goals within therapy, I focus on a collaborative relationship between therapist and client, creating a dynamic that allows clients to feel comfortable expressing themselves openly within session. I believe that a good therapeutic relationship is essential to client growth.
I have experience working with adolescents to older adults. I have worked with individuals experiencing symptoms of Anxiety, Depression, Schizoaffective Disorder, and much more. I am passionate about working with individuals who are struggling with identity as well as those who have experienced trauma.
In my work with clients, I utilize an eclectic approach to counseling, focusing on each individual’s unique experiences and how those experiences impact each client throughout life. I also incorporate Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), using concepts of mindfulness and emotion regulation, as well as Interpersonal Theory, applying a number of interventions that address the individual’s relationship with others and the self. While I understand the importance of using theory to provide structure within therapy, I determine my interventions based on client needs, tailoring treatment to each individual.
