Dr. Erin Hagerty believes that every person has the capacity for change, wellness, and healing and that human connection is central to this process. She utilizes a strength based relational therapeutic approach to treatment and works with children, adolescents, adults, and couples. Erin began her career working with families, children, and adolescents in a variety of settings including school, inpatient, and child trauma center settings and received specialized training working with individuals who have experienced trauma. Specifically, Erin has received training in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Integrative Treatment of Complex Trauma, Attachment Regulation and Competency Framework, and Child Parent Psychotherapy. Erin received her Master’s and Doctorate degrees in Clinical Psychology from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology and her Bachelor’s degree in psychology from West Virginia Wesleyan College.
Erin’s experiences in these settings strengthened her belief in the importance of the integration of healing attachment and human connection in treatment. As such, she pursued additional training in couples and parent work to support this need. Erin has received Level 1 and Level 2 training in the Gottman approach to couples work and is a certified Parent Child Interaction Therapist
Currently, Erin is the Clinical Director at Rooted Connections. She has been with the practice for over five years and works with a wide range of clinical needs. This includes working with individuals struggling with relational and family issues including issues related to divorce and separation, anxiety and stress, depression, life transitions, and behavioral challenges. She also has a particular passion for working with individuals who have experienced trauma including sexual and physical abuse, neglect, and issues with attachment including histories in foster care and adoption. She uses an evidenced-based holistic treatment approach which allows her to appreciate the depth and complexity of each person. Her approach is warm, supportive, and collaborative, and she works closely with parents, schools, and other important entities in an individual’s life to facilitate therapeutic progress. She believes that a strong, supportive therapeutic relationship and feelings of safety in the therapeutic space are of the utmost importance.
Personally, Erin loves nature, reading, games, and trying out new recipes. She also enjoys exploring new places, trying new food and experiences, and meeting people.
