It is important to Erin that parents are involved in the therapeutic process. She also likes this to extend to the practice of school for her clients. Afterall, their occupation is to be a child, peer, student and the success of the therapy involves the commitment of the child, the parent, the teacher and the therapist. In order to ensure Erin is able to do her part in this equation, her passion for her work extends to her membership in the clinical faculty at Saint Louis University, her alma mater. Through this partnership, she keeps her skills sharp and regularly mentors students who are earning their undergraduate and master’s in Occupational Therapy.
