Erinn Williams is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in downtown Chicago who specializes in anxiety, including Generalized Anxiety Disorders and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), trauma, relationships, eating disorders, and life transitions. Many of her clients are women and/or working professionals. Many of them have anxiety around a relationship or the challenges in finding a relationship.
Erinn is a solution-oriented therapist who draws from a number of treatment modalities, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR), Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), and mindfulness practices. She spends time understanding the barriers her clients experience before developing an individualized treatment plan that may include a life change, developing coping strategies, or exploring past trauma, if a client feels ready to do. She also typically helps her clients learn to better manage their symptoms before working towards making changes in their life.
Erinn believes everyone deserves to live the life they want and have the resources and tools to manage their symptoms. She looks forward to meeting you at her office located just one block west of Millennium Park and near the Washington/Wabash ‘L’ stop.
