I am a Clinically Licensed Social Worker with over 10 years of experience working within a range of settings including both inpatient and outpatient mental health, home healthcare services, crisis intervention, domestic violence and trauma, shelter services and most currently with our Veteran population. I have worked with people regarding their concerns with anxiety, depression, self-esteem, trauma, relationships, adjustment, grief and parenting to name a few.
I believe that the best place to start in a therapeutic relationship is to meet you where you are. Everyone has their own unique experience and I believe you are the expert on you. I use a solution-focused, strengths-based approach to do this. I will always treat you with respect and sensitivity. Therapeutic interventions I use include Cognitive-Behavioral (CBT), mindfulness, motivational interviewing and Dialectical-Behavioral (DBT) therapies.
I view my overall biggest role is to know what your goals are and serve as a guide to help you find your way over the bumps that have, and do come up along the way. I look forward to working with you on your journey!
- Stress, Anxiety
- Trauma and abuse
- Self esteem

Talking with Erica has become an important part of my weekly routine. It's like a spa for my brain. Erica takes an active interest in me and is always professional. I can be a bit all over the place but she always listens and brings me back to important topics when needed. I don't feel like she is 1000's of km away. Thanks Erica for your dedication these many months. I appreciate you.
Erica: Thank you so much for helping me with getting the courage to move on from my toxic work situation with a much healthier approach to my life and coping mechanisms!! You have been so invaluable throughout everything!!
Erica has been truly amazing! What I appreciate most is her ability to validate my feelings which creates a safe environment for me to open up to her about everything I am faced with. Erica offers respectful suggestions and I am super glad I picked her. I know I have alot more work to do which is primarily on me, however I trust it will go well with Erica by my side.
Erica has been a tremendous help to me. Her responses are caring and insightful. She is helping me get through a very difficult time in my life and has provided me with techniques on dealing with every single one of my situations. Everyone should have an Erica in their life. I would highly recommend her.
Erica is amazing.
Erica is a huge help and has helped me a ton in taking those first few small, but albeit, scariest steps towards my goals.
Erica and I started talking to each other in April. From the start she made it clear that she's here to help me. I needed a place to talk about life issues. BetterHelp gave me that, but importantly, it put me in touch with Erica, who has done so much to help me, to guide me. I'm so grateful for her counsel. While BetterHelp is online, and Erica and I haven't met, I thank her for her help. I know this review is longer than most, but it's meant most sincerely. I hope Erica Hoskins will see it and know my gratitude.
Erica has been very helpful and professional. She focuses on getting you help quickly and effectively. She asks good questions and always works with what you are saying and your feedback. Very helpful at getting to the core of an issue.
Erica is very insightful and I feel understood when we talk. I would highly recommend her to anyone!
Erica is very helpful and tends to my needs very well.
I would like to say that Erica has helped me so much over the last couple of weeks. She has helped me realize that I need to be me and move forward to be whom I feel I should be and not hide the real me. Thank you so much!
So far I think she is fabulous! Thank you
Erica is extremely encouraging and has wonderful ideas that work for you and your particular type of treatment, I have made huge strides with her and we haven't ever met face to face. She is an amazing therapist and clearly loves her job! I wouldn't trade her in for anything
Erica is very attentive, kind, compassionate and helpful in dealing with common life struggles, as well as mental health issues, as I work to overcome them. She not only provides a listening ear but also useful tools and strategies for overcoming problems and learning to be my best self.
