Erin is a psychologist who grew up in Shaker Heights, Ohio. She attended The Ohio State University on an athletic scholarship for lacrosse. She achieved some success in athletics (but doesn’t want to brag), however eventually had to end her athletic career early due to injury. After struggling to find life after athletics she wandered into a psychology cancer research lab, and immediately fell in love with the field. She went on to get her M.A. at Boston College, where her interest in studying social justice and multicultural psychology grew. She eventually received her Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology with a specialization in multicultural psychology from Columbia University, Teachers College. Prior to coming to Cornell she completed her Pre-Doctoral internship at The College of William & Mary, and has worked at several college counseling centers throughout Manhattan, community mental health agencies and non-profit organizations. Her clinical interests include focusing on identity issues related to race, ethnicity, sexual orientation and gender identity, the impact of discrimination, as well as interpersonal therapy aimed at exploring relationship dynamics, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and the experiences of student-athletes. In addition to Let’s Talk, Erin is also a member of the Cornell Healthy Eating Program (CHEP), and conducts group therapy. When she is not at work she can be found building and restoring furniture, and collecting/hoarding antiques.
