Getting to know you – Erin Haber, M.ED., RP

Jun 28, 2023

1. What do you love about your profession? The opportunity to get to really know people, form meaningful connections, and journey with people through many different life situations.
2. Why did you become a Therapist? Prefer meeting with people in 1:1 or small group situations,
Enjoy learning about other people through meaningful conversations and relationships. I am a lifelong learner, and in the process of assisting others, inevitably learn something about myself.
3. Do you have any additional, specialized training or area of focus as a Therapist that people might want to know about? Much of my experience is in children’s mental health: early years development, attachment relationships and developmental trauma. I have a formal training and practice in the following modalities:
Psychodynamic Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Client-Centred Therapy, Family
Therapy, Intergenerational Trauma Treatment Model ( 3 phase treatment program for parents, children/youth); Dyadic Developmental Therapy (an attachment-based approach), Circle of Security Parenting (COS-P); Dialectic Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Brief and Solution-Focused Therapy, Reflective Family Play, Parent-Child Interaction, Parenting, Neuroscience-based approaches, Meditation and Mindfulness. I am a certified Yoga Instructor (YTT 200) and incorporate yoga philosophy and some breath practice into sessions when beneficial.
4. If you weren’t a Therapist, what would you be? I would be doing something creative in one of the following fields:
Music or visual arts- sculptor, painter or fashion designer.
5. Tell us one thing you are passionate about outside of your work 🙂 I am passionate about Yoga and Meditation, and love to try to find my Zen space on the golf course and in my garden.
6. Bonus Question; Favourite Food! I love to cook and enjoy almost all food, but wild blueberries take me back to my childhood, picking blueberries in the woods behind the cottage and making blueberry pancakes or pie. A close second would be sampling different cheeses – any cheese.
