Erica is sweet and kind. She listens to everything and is very respectful. She always knows what to say and our live chatting sessions are always full of help and learning on both sides!!

I love how patient, understanding, and very attentive she is. She listens to what I have to say and takes the time to understand my issues and myself. I love how she checks up on me to see how im doing. She's an amazing therapist, the best one I have ever met.
