Director, Mental Health Services
Erin began at Strides Toronto in 2011 (then East Metro Youth Services) as a core staff in our What’s Up Walk-in clinic. Strides Toronto was fortunate that Erin brought prior experience with brief counselling, having worked at one of the first walk-in clinics in Calgary. Subsequently, she took on the role of a clinical youth outreach worker (YOW) in the community. In 2014 she joined our management team as the supervisor for the Strengthening Families Program. In 2016 Erin took on the role of Manager of the East Toronto YOW Program and then in 2017 assumed the position of Manager of Brief Services. She has served as Director of Clinical and Professionals services since 2019. Erin has a Master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Calgary.
