Empathic and practical guidance on ways to create a healthy 2-home family for you and your child(ren).
Hello. I'm Erin Moran, Psy.D., Educator
I have a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (Psy.D.) from Pacific University's, School of Professional Psychology. The title "Educator" is often misconstrued as someone who only lectures to a large audience. However, in my role I meet individually (or as a family) with my clients to develop a clear understanding of his/her/their unique background, current challenges and hopes for the future. In this way, I am able to uniquely tailor our work to meet that individual's particular needs. Unlike a psychologist, I do not provide diagnostic evaluations or treat mental illness. Instead, I help everyday people, often facing very difficult circumstances, learn new ways to approach old problems.
Just as no two families are identical, there is no universal "right" formula in raising children or maintaining a healthy relationship with your partner. However, there are some key ingredients that absolutely do help make for a better journey.
We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.
~ Joseph Campbell
What to Expect During Your First Appointment
I provide an empathic environment for you to safely voice your concerns without judgment. During your initial, one-hour appointment we explore areas of difficulty, the impact of these difficulties, and most importantly, your hopes for the future. Often, my clients struggle to "know" all that is worrying them. And, that's okay. I simply meet them where they are at and let his/her stories reveal our work.
My intention is that by the end of your first appointment you will leave feeling understood and better prepared to work through the challenges you are facing.
