About Me

My name is Seth Erickson and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have extensive education and training to go along with 7 years of experience helping individuals overcome depression, anxiety and traumatic experiences. I am experienced in using multiple treatment approaches including CBT, person-centered therapy, and crisis intervention. I believe that all people have a great capacity for change and given the right opportunity, can heal and grow. My sessions allow for you to be present in the moment and not feel rushed as you work on the goals that you have set for yourself. I understand that counseling is not an exact science and will not promise that if you do “x” then “y” will happen. However, I do believe that healing and recovery can come through the counseling process. It is often hard and not always a pleasant experience. Yet, I want to be here to help you find the direction you seek and support your healing journey.

Seth is an outstanding CBT practitioner. I sought his help in getting on track with a career search that was floundering and have really found the path toward getting the job that's right for me. Highly recommend.

Seth is incredibly patient, caring, and kind while listening to your concerns and genuinely wants what is best for you. This was my first time seeing a therapist and I couldn't be more grateful that I was paired with Seth.

Seth is simply amazing. He takes the time to really listen, he isn't pushy, and he makes sure to clarify that he understands what your saying so he did not misinterpret the meaning in your statements!! 100% would recommend him!
