I really felt comfortable and respected during my session with Erica. She has a great therapeutic affect, and manages to be caring while professional. I also felt that she was listening actively to try to guide me toward improving my own process in a gentle but constructive way.

I’ve really appreciated Ericka. She’s very wise and knowledgeable but I mostly am grateful for how she listens and doesn’t make me feel judged. She’s also very patient. She reminds me a lot of my friend Robin who used to mentor me. I feel like I learn a lot from her and our conversations.
