Through therapy, I hope to help you become your best self and find joy in your life.

From the moment I started working with Erika, she has been a supportive and kind professional. She’s an amazing listener and always has something useful and positive to add. She makes me feel like I’m capable of change and she offers her perspective without being pushy or demanding. I strongly recommend this wonderful therapist.
