About Me

My name is Erika Jacobson, MSW, LICSW, LADC, and I have been a practicing mental health for a little over six years. I started my career working with teenagers, their families, and adults doing mental health and substance use counseling. I am a licensed mental health practitioner and have a separate licensure in substance use. I also have experience working with clients with severe and persistent mental illnesses. I have extensive background in grief/loss support with a speciality in pet loss support. I utilize different therapeutic approaches such as cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, interpersonal process therapy, and solution-based therapy. I believe that everyone can benefit from therapy. I prefer to work collaboratively with my clients in tackling issues. I also have a certificate in gerontology and am working towards a masters in this area.

She’s quite adaptable and understanding. She takes time to listen to what her clients have to say and asks for clarification if ever confused. She’s great at providing solid advice and assisting with goal setting as well as providing valuable resources. Highly recommended.

Erika is basically my saving grace. She has helped me through very very hard times in my life and I honestly don't know if I could have gotten through some of the things if it wasn't for her. She continues to help me and be there for me whenever I need her, I couldn't have asked for a better counselor. Thank you, Erika, for everything!
