I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker with over 15 years experience working with children, adolescents and adults in a variety of settings. Over the course of my career, I have educated myself to provide the best possible care to those I have had the privilege of serving, assisting them in overcoming difficulties such as depression, anxiety, ADHD, and parenting issues.
I always begin where you are, and together formulate a plan of care that will achieve your goals and aspirations. My therapeutic style is rooted in the strong belief that progress can only be made when the therapeutic alliance is based on trust, compassion and empathy. As I have grown as a therapist, I have also learned the value of humor as a tool for connection and growth. These core principles, along with cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness therapy, and solution-focused therapy, are what guide my practice.
Life can be overwhelming and difficult for all of us. It is my firm belief that in these moments, having the help of a trusted support person can be the thing that can return us, or perhaps even help us to find for the first time, peace, happiness and contentment. I would welcome the opportunity to accompany you on such a journey to find and maintain that fulfillment for yourself.
Additional areas of focus: Relationship issues, Trauma and abuse, Parenting issues, Coping with life changes, ADHD
Clinical approaches: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy

As someone who is trying therapy for the first time at 31 and who doesn’t open up to new people easily I was very hesitant. Erica was assigned to me and I’m so glad she was! Several sessions in I’m so happy I have her on my side.

Erica has been an awesome therapist! Very professional and great at what she does. She has made a very nervous and tough step in life so stress free.
