Hey! If you're looking in to BetterHelp, I imagine you're struggling with something significant in your life. Good for you for looking to get help with these concerns! Being able to connect with your therapist is a big part of the process; I know first hand how scary it can be. I want to tell you a little about me to let you decide if my experience and therapy approach may be a good fit for you and your needs.
My name is Erica and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the state of GA. I have been a Social Worker for more than 14 years with experience with various populations, in various settings. I have worked with clients with a broad range of concerns from: anxiety, depression, life change, LGBTQ+ related issues, sexual/physical/emotional abuse, grief and loss, family dynamic concerns, and many more. Clients have given me feedback stating I am calm, a great listener, empathetic, nonjudgmental, and give clients a space to feel safe communicating their concerns. My goal is to offer clients a person who supports them and someone who is willing to walk thru the tough situations they are experiencing.
I am available to communicate with you in whatever manner best suits your needs, lifestyle, and schedule. I'm available mainly in the evenings or on weekends and I will check messages at least once per day. If you feel that I would be a good fit for you, I would consider it a privilege to be part of your journey.
