Erin Cooley-Gross Disclosure Statement:
I love being a mental health counselor. I started my career as a preschool teacher, determined to save the world one child at a time. I obtained my Associates Degree in Child Development and my Bachelors Degree in psychology. Wanting to make an even greater impact on the success of children and families, I pursued a Masters in Counseling through Walden University. This began my journey into the world of mental health and it has truly been a journey of purpose for me. I tell my clients that I am a "geek" for counseling and I am always absorbing new information about the mental health field.
I have been working as a trauma-informed therapist for many years. I am trained/certified in Cognitive Processing Therapy, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and, more recently, EMDR. I take into account the whole person, understanding that many factors make up health. I am creative in utilizing many modalities to help you achieve your goals with your mental health and overall well-being. I deeply believe in the natural desire for each person to reach wholeness and believe you are the expert of yourself. I desire to guide, support and challenge you to reach your fullest, actualized self.
I utilize unconditional positive regard, meaning as my client there will be no judgment and I support you as the expert of yourself. I use a variety of evidence-based modalities of treatment such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, Cognitive processing therapy and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), as well as mindfulness and meditation techniques.
My biggest strengths lie in my understanding of how trauma can underpin so many of our current mental and physical symptoms. I also have extensive knowledge of human development and have years of parenting education under my belt as well. I work with humans who suffer from anxiety, depression and/or burnout.
Erin works with children, teens, adults, and familes.
