About me

There are definitely things that we can do in service of our own healing and growth but I tend to believe that there aren’t really answers or solutions to things, nor does there need to be, but instead ways of looking at them and holding them so that we can be in better relationship with them. I believe we can offer ourselves a perspective that can turn situations, circumstances, feelings, relationships with others and the relationship with ourselves into dance partners, instead of opponents that need to be defeated, not allowed or kept down. We can invite all of our experiences onto the dance floor of our heart! As a human being we will sometimes dance with incredible Grace and at other times be quite clumsy. We are allowed, we are human! If we allow ourselves to move with humor, patience, understanding and forgiveness we can recognize that our life’s dance can truly be Blessed and beautiful!

Quite simply offering behavioral, emotional and relational support to young people, individuals and families on their journeys. Providing a strength based approach in which warmth, patience, humility, humor and sincere reflection nurture the already existing health and strength within each human being. Since 2012 I have been Blessed with being able to provide therapeutic support to children, adolescents, adults and families in my role as a youth and family therapist. I would be honored to provide any support or therapeutic accompaniment I can offer to assist you on your path of healing, personal growth, individual unfoldment or just surfing the waves of life. I look forward to working with you. Thank you so much! Eric

Written on Aug 25, 2022 after therapy with Eric for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and coaching

Eric is an excellent therapist and a wonderful person. He has helped me in so many ways. From the first moment you meet him his expertise and passion for helping others is clear. What you get with Eric is authentic understanding, compassion, support, and guidance. He helped me to identify the issues that I was facing and then offered me tools and ideas with which to solve them. And these things I have learned from Eric are things I can take with me throughout the rest of my life. I recommend Eric 100%.

After years of trial and error with therapy, I’m happy to have found such a skilled, professional, and engaged therapist who is truly in his element. Eric has a deep sense of complex traumatic conditions and doesn’t limit the treatment to a single approach. He integrates and suggests many different things depending on the circumstances but manages to keep the continuity of the process, which is very helpful.
