Professional statement

Erin Lehmann is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in Boston, MA who works with individuals and couples. She specializes in anxiety, depression, relationships, mindfulness, perfectionism, and couples counseling. While she sees adults across the lifespan, many of her clients are millennials experiencing anxiety around decision points and life choices. She also has extensive experience working with both individuals and couples who are navigating major life transitions, including divorce, becoming empty nesters, parenthood, and/or a career change.

Erin primarily utilizes evidence-based therapies, including Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), mindfulness practices, and Metacognitive-Based Therapy (MCT). She helps her clients become more aware of negative thought patterns and learn how to gain better control over these thoughts.

When working with couples, Erin focuses on attachment styles and how each individual’s childhood has impacted how they view relationships. She helps couples better understand each other’s strengths and values.

Erin’s approach is flexible, collaborative, and extremely supportive using a strengths-based perspective in an empathic and non-judgmental environment. Before starting her private practice, she worked in community mental health with a diverse clientele facing adversity, trauma and loss.

She looks forward to meeting you.
