Erin Ingram, MSW, LCSW
Life can be hard. Whether it is transitioning from one phase of life to another or financial and work stressors there is always something that we have to learn to cope with and it can be very easy to start feeling overwhelmed and stuck. I believe every experience in life has a purpose. Nothing happens by chance. Failure, conflict or ending a relationship isn’t meant to break us but to provide valuable lessons for us to learn, grow, gain insight, become stronger and live happier. I can support and guide you in your search for the inner strength needed to regain your sense of control, purpose and joy.
The reason I decided to pursue a career in counseling is because as a child I saw a counselor who made a difference in my life (his name was Max) and I wanted to make a difference and help people who feel lost or need guidance and support just like I did and so started my journey to becoming a therapist. You do not need a professional to tell you life is hard, but having someone by your side as you navigate life can help. That’s where I come in. I believe that counseling is a way for individuals, couples, and families to share their experiences and pain and find ways to transform their darkness into light.
Together we can work on self-esteem, self-sabotaging thoughts, insecurities, anger, family conflict, life transitions, anxiety and depression. As you learn new skills, you gain the confidence to pursue goals, work on relationships and create a more positive future for yourself.
