Daytime availability only. Erika is an experienced psychotherapist with a diverse background in the mental health field. She has treated a range of clients such as toddlers, school-age children, teenagers, children in foster care, adoptees, college-age students, and adults in counseling settings. Erika works with both adults and children on healing the wounds that trauma has created in their lives, as well as those experiencing other symptoms that are impacting their lives. When working with clients, Erika utilizes an integrative approach to best meet the needs of the client. This therapeutic space is LGBTQIA+-affirming.
While working with young children, Erika uses a child-centered approach with Trauma Focused Play Therapy. This method allows children who do not have the vocabulary to share through words to process their thoughts, feelings, and experiences in an age-appropriate way- such as through play and art. These skills cross over in working with adult clients as well
Erika believes that every client comes to her with individualized strengths and interests that can be built upon in a safe environment to develop positive coping skills and techniques to heal from the past and move towards a healthier future. If you feel that Erika could be a good fit to help you on your journey, please reach out! (Emails preferred)
