My name is Eric and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I have been working as a counselor since 2011 following graduating with my Master's degree in Mental Health Counseling. I began working in the field as a therapist on an inpatient psychiatric unit leading groups and providing individual counseling for several years before transitioning to providing telephonic support and crisis interventions. Through these experiences I have worked with a wide array of individuals from all walks of life to better understand and cope with mental health concerns, specific diagnosis, and life stress.
In therapy my primary style is implementing a person-centered approach to meet you where you are at in this moment, to get a sense of who you are and a basic "snapshot" of the present, discussing and getting an understanding of the current situation that you are experiencing, how it is impacting you and how this led you to seek additional supports and services, then working together to come up with a "game plan" moving forward. As we move forward I often utilize pieces and ideas from Brief Solution-Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and as a future-oriented piece Positive Psychology. By working together to set realistic goals and start the process of building up coping skills and strategies moving forward, my hope is that we can walk side-by-side into what hopefully can be a better and healthier future for you.
I look forward to hearing from you and working together in the near future!

I feel like I have made a lot of progress towards my healing. Eric has been a very big help so far. It will take time and I look forward to working with Eric throughout the stages
I've been through my fair share of therapists and Eric is finally a therapist I really feel comfortable speaking to honestly. He is extremely friendly and easy to talk to. We have already gone through a few different types of coping mechanisms, different types of therapy. It's very clear that he cares for his patients and cares about the work he does. I would highly recommend Eric to anyone.
Great insights and support have helped me navigate some tough times
Eric has been the best therapist to me! I’ve been through a few therapists on BH but none clicked as much as I’ve hoped until now. Eric is the longest therapist I’ve had. He has thoughtful responses/feedback, shows active listening, professional, and has been consistent with scheduling and availability. He tries his best to address all my concerns within the time given and allows me to prioritize the items I want to discuss. It has been nothing but a pleasant experience with Eric so far.
Eric is extremely supportive and gives great advice! Only been with him for a short time and he has helped me a lot.
My experience with Eric so far has been very positive. This being my first time ever seeking therapy has been easier than I thought.
Eric is a fantastic therapist, I would highly recommend working with him!
In addition to providing some helpful tools and resources, Eric has been a great resource himself and I have looked forward to our phone calls each week to gather my thoughts and talk through how to navigate through them.
Eric has helped me through a challenging period of my life with gentle grace and encouragement. It seems as though half the time he knows exactly what I’m thinking, and will express how I feel before I even put it into words. I hope Eric knows how many tools and resources he’s helped me find and build for myself. I would recommend him to anyone struggling with substance use disorders, anxiety, and depression. He is also wonderfully thoughtful and follows up often to check in on things. I appreciate his spirit.
I was only able to work with Eric for a short time for financial reasons, but in that time he was able to listen to me, help me work through some challenges/anxieties, and give me some practical coping techniques. I would recommend him for anyone else struggling with anxiety!
It's kind of hard to put it into the right words but, he's a good counselor. He does his best to understand the complex feelings that can arise from odd and uncomfortable situations and he has helped me to understand and sort out my feelings. Even when they don't make sense to me.
Eric has been an asset to overcoming my past traumas. He created a safe environment for me to explore my feelings and be vulnerable. Offers great resources and helps me build tools for a better me.
Great listener, helpful insights, responsive and friendly.
Eric has been amazing thus far. He’s been there and reaches out even when I’ve been MIA. He understands the issues in front of me and had been great at guiding me through. I would recommend him to anyone
He responds in a great manner and will reach out even when you haven’t talked in a while to ask how you are doing
Eric is excellent, on time and quick to respond.
Eric is the man! Super down to Earth and is uncanny in his response to literally every detail!
Eric does a good job and corresponding with me to see how I am doing.
Eric is the best counselor I have ever had the opportunity to work with. He is kind and understanding but also asks the hard hitting questions that need to be asked when they need to be asked. I've seen so, so much improvement in my life and mental health since starting to work with Eric.
Eric is extremely nice and listens. He has also worked with me when the app had trouble on my end.
Eric has been great, gentle, patient, and kind throughout our multiple encounters. He gives me what I need during the times when I need it.
Deeply compassionate. I can’t say more than the incredible reality that these words truly convey.
He's fantastic and quite literally a life-saver. Thank you Eric!
Eric has been very helpful . He is attentive and listens providing strategies to help. He responds timely but also provides space. This was new to me but Eric helped give me strategies to pull myself out of a dark patch.
Eric is very calm and kind, listens respectfully and makes me feel heard and understood. He has thoughtful insights both in our live sessions and in chats. He also always responds to chats in a timely manner, which I appreciate.
Eric is very good at helping me organize my thoughts and coming up with a thorough plan of attack for issues I may be having. I am able to think of what I need to do more clearly with his help and I am very happy so far with him as my therapist.
Eric is both passionate and empethetic towards my situations and advice. He offered great encouragement and suggestions that allow me to work through my thought process and monitor my behaviors to my own need. He was very understanding and never asked me to act upon his suggestions, but I felt tailored to what might work best in my own situation/environmental challenges. He was a wonderful and attentive counselor that I work very much reccomend!
Eric has been so so great ! Best experience ever
Eric has been fantastic, he’s respected my perspective while offering insight and guidance without having to go sit in a room and that’s what I came here for.
Wonderful person. He really does care about you and tries his best to help!
Eric immediately and compassionately turned my whole situation around that I was dealing with. I was experiencing panic attacks and postpartum anxiety, and within the first day I started feeling better and learning new tools. I know I am supported here.
Eric is very good at keeping track of me and helping me refocus.
