Erin Bishop is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Los Angeles, CA (License #108614) who has worked with clients since 2010. She works primarily with adults and couples, and has special interest and expertise in supporting: anyone struggling with severe depression; high-achieving women; first- and second-generation Asian Americans; LGBTQIA+ individuals and couples; and individuals and couples at any point in the process of trying to bring a child into their family, including those coping with fertility challenges, miscarriage, infant loss, extended NICU stays, developmental concerns, and mental health decline during pregnancy or postpartum.
Erin tailors the counseling experience to each individual or couple's unique strengths, needs, and circumstances. She draws from a wide range of psychological theories and healing modalities, including: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), mindfulness and mindful self-compassion, motivational interviewing, somatic experiencing, psychodynamic/depth psychology, trauma resiliency, attachment, emotionally focused therapy, family systems, relational gestalt, and LGBTQIA+ affirmative therapy.
Erin’s approach is also strongly informed by her personal experiences being treated for major depression and anxiety both in young adulthood and following the births of her two children.
Prior to earning her Masters in Clinical Psychology and training as a psychotherapist, Erin worked as an attorney at a business litigation firm and later as a consultant for Westside Regional Center and The Achievable Foundation, both non-profits supporting the needs and well-being of children and adults with developmental disabilities.
Erin has two office locations, one borders Culver City and Playa Vista, and the other is near Downtown Culver City and Cheviot Hills. Free street parking is available at both locations. Erin also offers remote sessions to anyone within California.
