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 is a good listener and gives good advice and help. She always checks on me from time to time. I even felt that she is even more available than I am. :) which makes me feel glad that whenever I need her she’s available.

Erica is warm, caring, patient and compassionate but also just the right amount of challenging to make sure you're still working and getting the most out of therapy. She has been an incredible suppport through a very stressful and difficult time in my life. I can't recommend her enough.

Erica Mau is a wonderfully professional therapist who's experience in the field shows well. She has a problem solving approach, and is very good at obtaining and giving answers. I would highly recommend her to anyone, but especially to first time therapy goers who are unsure if therapy will be helpful. She will show through her actions and words just how effective it can be.

Written by W.E. on Sep 11, 2017 after counseling with Erica for 2 weeks addictions, and relationship

I love how real Erica is. She lets me have a sense of humor about some really hard situations, and is able to laugh with me. She listens to what I'm saying (and what I'm not saying), rather than making assumptions about what my experience or feelings would be. I really appreciate her!

It's only been a two weeks but I do feel like talking with Erica has really helped me with my trust issues. I feel better talking to my friends and family since Erica made me realize it's alright to share and people won't judge you.

Started using the service a couple of months ago. Really impressed with my counsellor and the overall experience using the app.
The way you can access your session from any place at any time has been of great use to me.
My counsellor Erica has been wonderful, very open minded, understanding and helpful.
I would highly recommend that anyone who needs to talk about something try Better Help.
If you're matched with Erica know you're in good hands =)

Erica has been very kind and patient. We didn't end up working together as I had to cancel my membership, but she seems like a very loving, caring and helpful counselor. If I sign back up, I am hoping to start working with her again.

Erica is a wonderful person. She was very understanding, however, she would not let me wallow in self pity. She would continually bring me around to what positive steps that I could take to be at peace and to have success in my life. I really feel like my communication with Erica helped me to make a huge decision in my life that helped me succeed and renewed my strength to press on. Thank you Erica.
