Social Workers work with you to get the most out of your relationships.

Whether your situation deals with personal issues at home, at work or in your community life, Social Workers are here to help identify the source of the stress, enhance your coping skills and find positive solutions together.


As a qualified Social Worker, I have extensive experience and specialized expertise which includes working as part of an interdisciplinary team in healthcare environments such as hospitals and long-term care facilities. 

I also have experience supporting families and have worked within the school system, both elementary and secondary, to support children/youth and their families grieving or caring for loved ones who are palliative in a hospice setting, hospital or in their homes.

Erin Walter (McInnis) BA BSW RSW APHSW-C

We all need to be heard, especially when we're struggling with a life threatening diagnosis or the death of someone close to us. It is often during these times that we can become anxious or feel overwhelmed with the trials of everyday life. There are also times where life is just unpredictable. Talking to a counsellor like myself can help navigate those rough waters. Whether it's a major life decision, moving, experiencing anxiety or re evaluating one's life at any stage.

In my practice, I take the time to hear my clients' stories while making note of and drawing upon their unique strengths and experiences. I then work with them to create a personalized plan to address the areas that are troubling to them and causing them pain. 

Hello, my name is Erin Walter (McInnis) and for the past 20 years I have been working directly with families in the rawest and most challenging time of their lives.

I am a registered Social Worker with the OCSWSSW as well as a member with the OASW. I am one of a handful of Social Workers to be certified for Advanced Palliative Hospice Social Worker in Canada, which is an international certification. 

I have lived and worked in the beautiful city of Guelph, Ontario for the past 34 years and recently returned to my family roots in the picturous town of Arnprior, Ontario. I have been supporting individuals and families residing in Guelph and Wellington County and beyond for most of my professional life. In The Ottawa Valley I have been privileged to engage in conversations around best practices, community family support and hospice palliative care services. Assisting teens and adults around anxiety, stress and overwhelm. During the past 3 years, I have been fortunate to continue to provide support to many individuals throughout Ontario by video and/or phone. If you live in Ontario, I can provide support and counselling virtually, allowing you the comfort and privacy in your own home.

My children are now in their 20's living their best life. As a mom and empty nester, I understand the importance of their mental health and what it means to take care of myself to be the best version of myself. Having a supportive network, community connections and a village of attachment is essential for inspiring our children and having safety.

Feel free to contact me, and together we can take the first step towards clearing the fog of stress and anxiety that you are currently experiencing.

We all need to be heard, especially when we're struggling or hurting. When we are truly heard, we are given the opportunity to explore our past and present.  Through guided exploration, we are able to focus on our challenges.

I approach each session with a sincere interest in how you perceive and understand the world around you.

My philosophy in counselling is client centred combined with strength based, solution-focused and a narrative perspective because each client is unique.

This is accomplished by building a trusting relationship with you as a client and creating a collaborative and supportive environment in which you may feel heard and understood.

I work with children and youth, adults, families and seniors.

Counselling sessions are provided via telephone or through video conferencing so that you can stay and comfortable in your home or surroundings.

EM Consulting is committed to providing quality social work support in a safe and effective way.

Find a quiet space and we can talk.

Support Group


Throughout the year, webinars, workshops, blogs and learning opportunities will be offered because growing and learning as a community are extremely important to me.

I believe in the philosophy that it takes a village to grow, and that philosophy is equally true for supporting one another through difficult times. As we change and develop through our experiences, we are then better able to support others around us.  

If you are interested in having me speak at a community event, group, lunch and learn or meeting, please contact me, and I will be happy to make arrangements.

Keep in mind that video conferencing is a safe and effective way to communicate with your community as well.
