About me

Are you ready to experience more joy and happiness in your life?
Are you ready to reach your goals and live a more fulfilling life?
​Are you ready to have more energy and a healthy mindset?

Do you feel stuck in an endless cycle of stress, anxiety, and depression? Is your self-esteem low or non-existent? Are you having problems in your relationships? Change is hard, but I believe that every person has the potential to be the best version of him or herself that he or she can be, and that you are the expert of your life. I can help you become empowered to make the changes you want for your life.

​As a therapist, I offer an honest, respectful, non-judgmental environment to empower clients to achieve short and long term goals. In this compassionate safe relationship I will support you in finding and creating meaning and purpose in your life. My counseling style is direct and interactive. We will do this by examining old beliefs and habits that have been holding you back.

The compassionate relationship that is forged in therapy can bring about the insight, clarity and love needed to begin to grow and regain hope for your future. My experience is in private practice, residential treatment centers and inpatient psychiatry for over a decade. The patient population that I have the most expertise in are Depression, Anxiety Disorders, Bipolar I and II, Borderline Personality, and other Personality Disorders.

My mission is to help others find peace, joy and love in their lives. I bring with me over a decade of experience providing individual and group counseling for all ages. My integrated approach is tailored to the individual using methods in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical behavior therapy, Mindfulness, and Solution-focused therapy techniques.

Erica has been extremely helpful to me, so much so that when I needed to have a therapist again, I asked for her by name. She is always available to chat with even off session and I so appreciate that. She helps me put things in perspective and not allow Negative comments from other people to sink in as she assures me they’re not true
