Erin Burns, LPC, Therapist, 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.

"When getting in touch with someone to find a therapist I was emailed by Stacy Ramirez, she was very kind and helpful which was appreciated because I have never seen a therapist so I was unsure of the process. I had my first session with Beth Halterman, she made sure to introduce herself before the first session which i thought was very sweet because I was a bit nervous about seeking a therapist to begin with and seeing someone face to face for the first time without having ever spoken before would have made me a bit more nervous."

"Inner Courage Counseling has a lovely building that's warm and clean. My counselor was so good that when she started at Inner Courage I moved practices so I could stay with her. I would absolutely recommended them to anyone seeking counseling."

"I have always been hesitant about counseling especially when it involves my daughter. But I have to say Brittany Roback is absolutely amazing. My daughter has been seeing Brittany for about 6 months now and I have seen great improvements. Just after the first session I saw my daughter using skills Brittany had shown her. Brittany has always made sure to make my daughter and myself feel comfortable. My daughter sees it as a safe place when she sees Brittany."

"Inner Courage Counseling has really been there for me from the moment I first called and they continue to be. I have always struggled to find a counselor that I mesh well with and one that creates an environment that I feel encouraged to dedicate time for myself. I’ve learned things about myself that I never knew before and I’m excited because I know I will continue to. I truly feel like I am growing in a positive way after each session. That’s both exciting and encouraging for me."
