Erin has been involved in women’s health since she was 18 years old, working as a certified nurse’s aide. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from CU and completed her midwifery training through the University of Cincinnati. While in school, she worked in a variety of women’s health settings from Tuba City to Denver, CO. Exposure to a variety of clinic models and approaches to labor and delivery has made her comfortable with thinking outside the box to offer evidence-based options for each woman’s unique situation. Erin especially enjoys exploring integrated therapies for managing pregnancy and delivery. She believes wholeheartedly that midwifery is a collaborative kind of care. It is her job to educate her patients so that the entire team can arrive at decisions together. Erin is deeply gratified by the relationships she has developed with patients who come to her for labor and delivery support and stay with her for well-woman care, contraceptive counseling, and annual exams. For Erin, it is important to support the whole woman to help them make informed decisions about their reproductive healthcare throughout their entire life.
"Dr. Joel Dickens was our doctor throughout my second pregnancy and birth of our daughter two years ago. He was great about answering any of our questions and addressing any concerns we had along the way. He never made me feel like any of my questions were unimportant or silly and I was never made to feel that my concerns were irrational. I am now in my last weeks of my third pregnancy and am much less anxious knowing this baby and I are in good hands with Dr. Dickens. We highly recommend Dr. Joel Dickens!"

"I've had a great experience with the women's health staff. A big thank you to the midwife, Erin C. She helped me greatly with my postpartum care. She is very gentle and thorough in her approach, which made my reproductive care a positive experience. I have also been seen my Dr. McCarty. Her patient care is great, and I would highly recommend her as well."
