It’s hard when you first start talking to a new therapist. Erika has really helped me sort through some of my darkest times. I never feel judged when I’m at my most vulnerable moments and she makes you feel heard before ever giving her opinion. As for the moments I don’t feel like talking as much, she will fill the silence with warm advice on how to get through whatever my current struggle is while allowing room for my input. She’s encouraged me to pursue hobbies that I stopped doing years ago, and it’s added quality to my life again. She’s taught me how to view trauma differently and pull the good out of it. She’s professional, on time, flexible and open minded. I highly recommend Erika as a therapist.

Erika is wonderful. I feel completely comfortable opening up to her during our calls. Therapy isn’t easy but Erika helps me feel at ease. Highly recommended.

I am so grateful I was matched with Erika. She was my first therapist I was matched with, something I am also very grateful for. I was worried I would have to filter through multiple therapists to find a good match, but luckily that wasn't the case. Erika always makes me feel safe, comfortable and respected. She listens to my problems and helps me walk through challenging situations. Erika has truly made a huge impact in my life and I will forever be grateful for her guidance and kindness.

My experience with Erika was very positive. She gave me space when I needed to talk out my feelings and concrete advice and suggestions when I needed it. She is very easy to talk to and made me feel comfortable.
