Erin Pawlak, LPCC

Erin Pawlak is a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor who specializes in working with young adults and adolescents. With more than 10 years of experience in the mental health field, her specialty areas include working with youth, anxiety, depression and ADHD.  During the past several years, she has worked in the non-profit community mental health field at Beacon Health where she assisted in creating and developing the Transitional Youth program. In addition to working with the Transitional Youth population, she has worked as an advocate for the Lake County Victims of Crime (VOC). Her Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a 21-session program which focuses on CBT DBT and Motivational Interviewing for adolescents who need to focus more intensely on developing healthy coping skills.

Erin received her bachelor’s degree at Kent State University in Human Development and Family Studies with a concentration in Family Life Education. She obtained her master’s degree at Capella University in Mental Health Counseling.  

Everyone has problems and issues. Some are better at coping than others. Some need help, guidance and encouragement to make it through these challenging times. I meet my clients where they are at with wanting to work on their treatment and assist them through those difficult moments.


"You have been a Godsend for my daughter & I’m forever grateful for Behavioral Wellness Group, the Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Program, and finally to you, Erin, for being patient with us regarding CareSource, payments & for everything in between."

"Cool people, very easy to talk to. Erin (Adolescent, IOP), Devorah & Sarah………..Erin is by far the best therapist I’ve had."

"Hi Erin, Once again I can't thank you and your practice enough for helping {my son) adopt a healthier outlook on life and the tools to help him maintain it. The great thing about learning all of that is that, in a way, you can't unlearn it. (My son) now has all these other more helpful thoughts pop up after he gets upset about something, keeping him far away from his "edge". I'm seeing it happen regularly, and as a mom, it's a wonderful thing to see."

"(Erin Pawlak, Adolescent IOP) They really cared about me getting better and helped me know that its possible for me to feel good about myself again."

"(Erin Pawlak, Adolescent IOP) Making everybody feel comfortable and on the same level. Nobody feels singled out or like their opinion or life experiences don’t matter."

"(Erin Pawlak, Adolescent IOP) Thx, appreciate all your help-you really made a difference for her and we feel very lucky to have found you & your group."

"Erin is very good at listening to our problems and giving good advice, helping me see things in a different way, showing me different coping skills and allowing us to have fun.;"

"Thank you Erin and Sarah for giving me life back. I will be forever grateful! Because of you two, I am happy again. I have my life back.You gave me my family back, a brother, son, grandson, nephew, great nephew, cousin and friend. November 15, 2018, I would never thought that life could go on. Now, I am happier than ever. "

"Erin, You and your group were instrumental in stopping a downward slide that we weren't sure would ever be stopped. We will forever be grateful."

"Erin, I honestly don't know how you handle all this so well, but we are blessed you chose this for your career. You have been such a positive change for our family through the most challenging time I have faced. Thank you."

"Dear Erin, Thank you I really appreciate it! I also want to say thank you for helping me so much during the summer last year. It completely changed my life and I couldn’t be more thankful."

"Erin, Although ......... may still have a long road ahead in her healing process, I am seeing improvements in her daily life, which I’m so thankful for to you.  The weekly therapy sessions have really seemed to be a big part of her continual healing process. I can’t thank you enough for taking the extra time with her to help make sure she is moving in the right direction."

"Erin, Since he’s started I’ve really seen a change in how he’s coping with things and that he’s really trying to refocus his efforts back into school. It’s been really great to see."

"I can’t thank you enough for everything you have done for them—your group is such a blessing, and gave them both the tools they need to be able to manage their anxiety/depression... we are so grateful you helped make it happen."

"Thank you Erin and Jess for helping me out SO MUCH! I'm taking everything you guys taught me to my every day life! This was honestly the best decision me & my family have ever made!"
