Erin Gienger, MFT Trainee
I believe that each person is an expert on their own lived experience,
and so each person possesses unique viewpoints and characteristics that
can help them through whatever challenges they may be facing. I strive to create a safe, collaborative space where I can help people explore their own strengths and weaknesses as they journey through life’s transitions.
I encourage individuals of any age, couples, and families to grow with me in therapy as we work through their struggles. Hello, I’m Erin Gienger, and I am an MFT Trainee. Meet me at our San Jose location, or via telehealth.
I received my M.A. in Counseling Psychology from Azusa Pacific University. I am currently earning my M.A. in Marriage and Family Therapy from Touro University Worldwide and receiving my post-graduate training at the Process Therapy Institute. I am working towards my licensure as a Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT). My supervisor is Svetlana Kreimer, LMFT (Lic. No. 5325). I’ve had years of experience working as a therapist with adults, children, adolescents, families, groups, and couples in a variety of clinical settings.
I enjoy having the opportunity to work with clients from all cultural backgrounds. I am affirming and supportive of all gender and sexual identities. I tend to focus on how the person, couple, or family are experiencing things in the present, which has often been impacted by past experiences, with the salient emotion of the present coming through in the session. When a client and I can both learn something new together during therapy, I am so appreciative of the therapeutic alliance and my part in it.
