Erica is wonderful! She listens and asks thoughtful questions that I hadn’t thought of or was secretly avoiding. She’s been an essential part of my progress to be better over the last 6 months.

Erica has truly been a godsend to me! I have struggled with and managed anxiety throughout my life. When anxiety started to creep back into my life recently, I was so overwhelmed and discouraged! Erica could not have been a better match for me. She’s extremely knowledgeable and professional, but also so fun and real! This helped me to open up to her, but also helped me to laugh at myself...which I needed more than I even knew! Erica helped me remember the tools I learned in previous years of therapy, and also taught me new tools and strategies. Erica Innocent is changing the world...she certainly changed mine!!

Thanks to Erica, I've learned to trust the process of counseling and experience the benefits of taking the time to allow someone to understand the different challenges that each of us face. I'd recommend her and this platform without hesitation. Thanks, Erica!

I’ve been working with Erica for a couple of months, and I can say she has absolutely helped me. Not only did she understand what I wanted, she knew what I needed. It’s a testament to her talents as a counselor that she can connect with people so easily and quickly. She responds quickly to any message, is always on time for our appointments, and takes time to check in on me throughout the week—even when I don’t message her. Thank you, Erica!!

Erica has been very helpful, considerate, and caring. She is an excellent listener and hears beyond what I am saying and feeling. She is also very professional and has a lot of great exercises, homework, and information. I am glad to be able to work with her.
