I have been working successfully with depression, anxiety, PTSD, somatic and body image issues since the year 2000. I work in the present moment, attentive to content, process and relational aspects of the session. Aside from talk therapy, I facilitate change through experiential exercises such as meditation, movement, body and somatic awareness, gestalt role play, EMDR and cognitive and behavioral mindfulness. I am interested in how contact boundaries can be restored and built to a healthy state, creating a stronger and confident self.

Ericka subscribes to utilizing a blend of Cognitive Behavioral, Gestalt , and Solution-Focused Therapy techniques to assist her clients in meeting their desired goals.
Many of us begin to wander on our journey through life. We are unsure if our next move is our best move, we sometimes run into detours that change our direction, and often we hit pitfalls that can knock us off course completely. Some are able to struggle through, and others seek assistance with the help of a counselor. A counselor comes into your life as a GPS system, assisting with reviewing the course previously taken and providing you with the tools to “help you help yourself” get back on course towards your desired destination.

Therapy works best when you’re feeling understood. By processing and understanding the events of your life and your reaction to them, we will identify healthy coping strategies to manage stress and strong emotions. Have you experienced a loss that feels overwhelming? Feeling “stuck” or alone in your grief? Together, we can work to help you feel better.

Every client I work with is multifaceted and has many identities. I adapt my approach to meet people where they are, and honor the differences between us. People often come to therapy looking for change. I aim to provide a supportive space where change can safely occur. I have training in Somatic Experiencing, and believe that supporting the mind-body connection can be a fundamental part of a full healing and growth process. I believe every person has an innate capacity to heal, adapt, and thrive, once genuine support and safety are in place. Whether you reach out to me or another therapist, I hope you find what you need.

I can be most helpful to you if you are interested in growing yourself and your own potential for intimacy and sexuality. Instead of identifying what's "wrong" with you, I focus on your strengths. By balancing your desire for autonomy and your desire for connection, you can increase your capacity for desire and eroticism in intimate sexuality. As an active therapist, I'm willing to challenge you and your partner to develop and grow yourself up.

I think of therapy as a way of freeing ourselves from the obstacles which prevent us from moving forward in our lives. Frequently these obstacles present themselves to us in the challenges of the outer world--in problems at work, in difficult relationships, in adapting to life changes, or in the sudden impact of a traumatic event. And sometimes what stands in the way of our freedom and happiness lies within us, as negative thought patterns, conflicting or confusing emotions, and unexpressed feelings--all of which can result in depression, anxiety, chronic illness, low self esteem--burdens we often carry alone.

The journey tends to be complex, layered and somewhat unpredictable. At times, life can seem completely out of control, leading to feelings of anxiety, and depression. This effects many areas of our lives, including our sex lives. I focus on my client's regaining control and strive to help them actualize their goals through a supportive, positive, unconditional helping environment. I focus on clients as a whole person. I am a trauma informed, integrative counselor that derives a majority of my practice from a cognitive based theory. If we change our thinking, we change our lives. I am also getting my PhD in clinical sexology.

Overcoming mental and emotional challenges can be difficult, but even more when you feel like you are dealing with them alone. It's not always easy finding someone who's willing to listen and understands from a culturally responsive lens, especially when discussing personal challenges that have been discouraged outside of the home. Stress can come from many different avenues of life (career, family, relationships, society, and culture, etc) and can bring about depressions, anxiety, anger, isolation, and low-self esteem. It's not easy learning healthy ways to cope, managing your symptoms, and even recognizing that there's a problem.
