Erin Chapman Clack joined Taos Behavioral Health in March as a clinician. She is the coordinator for the TBH Familia y Mundo therapeutic after-school program located at Ranchos Elementary. In the 2018-2019 school year, she will work full-time at Ranchos Elementary and provide in-school therapy for emotional and behavioral issues in individual or group settings.
Erin moved to Taos from Dallas, where she had pursued a career in real estate until she decided to go back to school to earn a master’s in social work. While pursuing her degree, she interned as an adoption counselor at Catholic Charities of Dallas in Adoption & Pregnancy Services. She also interned as a case manager at the Annette G. Strauss Family Gateway Center in Dallas with homeless families.
Erin earned a Master of Social Work in direct practice mental health at the University of Texas at Arlington in Arlington, Texas, where her coursework included cognitive-behavioral intervention; treatment of addictive behaviors; social policy; stress, crisis and coping; and intimate partner violence.
Her undergraduate degree is a BA in Literary Studies and in Sociology from the University of Denver in Denver, Colorado. It was there she fell in love with the mountains and now loves being in Taos where she can enjoy many types of outdoor activities.
