Erin O'Connor Therapist
she/her/hers
MEd, Pre-Licensed Therapist

I am open to new clients at this time.

Life isn’t always easy. I believe that treating ourselves with grace and kindness is crucial to moving in the direction of the life we want, one characterized by contentment, purpose, connection, growth and love.

My background includes working from a trauma informed stance with mood, anxiety, and trauma related disorders as well as Binge Eating Disorder. I am Level I certified in Gottman Method Couples Therapy and am passionate about working with individuals in a variety of relationship structures to better understand and strengthen those relationships and the individuals within them. I am a member of Kink and Poly Aware Chicago Therapists (KPACT).

I don’t always have it all together and I don’t expect you to either. I’m here to work in a way that emphasizes strengths and fosters holistic wellness, self-compassion, and hope. I’m really excited to see where we can go together.
