About

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker Associate (LCSW-A) and have a passion for working with children and their families. I work to understand the unique family dynamics and assist the children and parents in building better relationships as well as teaching parents how the brain develops. I graduated from Queens University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology, and went on to receive myMaster of Social Work degree from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. I found that I not only love working with children but using Animal Assisted therapy in many of my therapeutic techniques.
It is said that animals are non-judgemental participants when included in therapy and as a therapist, I like to take that same approach, creating a safe environment for my clients to learn the skills they need for life and grow. I have assisted children, adolescents and some adults who have been diagnosed with different and varying mental health disorders.
Erica works to mold her therapies around her specific and unique clients as therapy is not a one size fits all thing. Erica works with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), adjustment disorder, depression, anxiety, trauma, Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as well as other disorders.
