About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 15 years in the Chicagoland area. I have experience working with individuals impacted by mental health, trauma, substance abuse, HIV, grief/loss and homelessness. I am passionate about my work because I feel everyone has the capacity to learn, change and create a better quality of life. I approach my clients with holistic counseling to look at all areas of their life to create strategies to meet your needs. I also integrate cognitive behavioral, solution focused, trauma informed care and strengths perspective into our sessions.
I recognize it is not easy to be vulnerable and can be uncomfortable to open up to a stranger about very personal issues. I am honored to be that person and will greet you with empathy ,patience, honesty and no judgement.
I look forward to starting this journey with you!

Erika really seems to care. She asks the right questions, and is very patient in waiting for a response. I've only been working with her a little while, but her suggestions and ideas really show that she is listening, and that she sees the person behind the struggle. I look forward to continuing to work with her.
