Lead Therapist

"Working at ECAC is so much more than just a "job" to me. Through ECAC I have found a purpose, a family, and a group of kids that have forever changed my life. Watching our clients grow and excel, reaching the most AMAZING goals, makes each day so rewarding and fulfilling. I'd have to say that the relationships I've built with the kids and the friendships I've made with the staff at ECAC are just a few of the many reasons why I never want to leave! I really wouldn't want to spend my life doing anything other than what I get to do every day at ECAC." -Erin
