Erin Staniszeski, LCSW
Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Present, genuine, unflappable
Erin Staniszeski has a powerful ability to sit with your story, no matter how intense or painful it may be, and hold the space you need to work through it and heal. Having walked alongside many survivors of trauma, Erin carries an unshakable confidence in your ability to break through and thrive, no matter what you’ve experienced.
She is passionate about her work with survivors of mass shootings, childhood trauma, and complex multilayered traumatic histories. An expert in EMDR trauma treatment, Erin helps train other clinicians in this powerful therapeutic tool. When asked about her work training clinicians in EMDR she reflected, “Once I saw the power of EMDR firsthand I knew I had to share it with as many people as I could.”
Erin embodies a unique blend of characteristics, a former summer camp director turned expert trauma therapist, she is at home amidst the vast range of human experiences. She has a gift for seeing you in all your complexity. Erin is comfortable in ambiguity, allowing you to be who you are with no need to fit you into a simple box. She knows you are so much more than what has happened to you, and she has a proven track record of helping people rediscover joy and play, even after incredibly difficult experiences.
Her clients feel safe with her, trusting her strength and her ability to stay centered in the midst of intense work. She can hold space for complexity; she knows how to be present with you in the painful parts of life while also encouraging you to embrace moments of humor and joy. Working with Erin invites you to move beyond “good enough” and achieve deep and lasting healing.
