Meet Erin

~Erin is not currently accepting new clients and has a closed waiting list.~

Hello! I'm Erin Bratsky, the heart and soul behind Brighter Sky Counseling, nestled in the beautiful city of Billings, Montana. As the owner and a dedicated therapist, I've created a sanctuary where individuals can find solace and balance amidst the whirlwind of life.

Clients often share how they cherish the individualized, warm, and supportive care they receive at my practice. And every morning, I wake up feeling incredibly blessed and grateful for the opportunity to be a part of such powerful journeys of pain and recovery, sorrow and triumph, healing and growth.

My path to becoming a therapist took me from the scenic landscapes of Montana to the University of New England in Portland, Maine, where I earned my Master of Social Work. In 2007, my journey came full circle as I returned to my beloved Montana to begin my practice. Billings has been my proud home since 2015, and I couldn't imagine a better place to grow roots and serve my community.

With over a decade of experience working with individuals and families across various settings—from schools and residential programs to outpatient services and therapeutic wilderness programs—I bring a wealth of knowledge and a heart full of compassion to each session. My approach is a unique blend of somatic awareness, humanistic, and relationship-based therapy, designed to create real change in the lives of my clients.

At Brighter Sky Counseling, I specialize in guiding others through the delicate dance of work-life balance, employing techniques that not only foster emotional healing but also empower and inspire. It's not just therapy; it's a journey towards rediscovering your inner strength and harmony.

So, if you're feeling overwhelmed by the scales of balance let's navigate this path together, towards a brighter, more balanced tomorrow.

We cannot selectively numb emotions, when we numb the painful ones, we also numb the positive ones. Brene Brown
