If there was one thing you wish people knew about the therapy experience who might be hesitant to try it, what would that be?
Most people come to therapy because they are in one way or another, contemplating some kind of change in their life. Therapy is about you! It is important to find a provider that you feel you can trust. It is normal to feel a little anxious about opening up your life to what seems like criticism. You are in the driver's seat of your life and a therapist's role is to support your desire to improve self-empowerment.
If you could pick one movie or book that influenced your approach to therapy, what would it be and why?
Good Morning Monster by Catherine Gildiner. Dr. Gildner does a wonderful job expressing the power of therapy in really simple, relatable terms. She refers to many of her clients as "heroes", which really resonates with me as a provider. It is a very moving to be able to partner with people in their healing journeys.

Erica has worked with many adult clients who have a history of childhood trauma, abuse or neglect. She is especially skilled in partnering with adults who have experienced physical, sexual, emotional, psychological or religious abuse within their relationships. It can be difficult to recognize all types of abuse in our relationships (familial, romantic and social), which can make survivors feel isolated and alone. Erica takes a non-judgmental but affirming approach when working with this special population. She works with clients to process their trauma, support the development of coping skills and find their own sense of empowerment. Some of Erica's other practice areas of expertise include treating obsessive-compulsive disorder with exposure therapy and partnering with neurodiverse clients to create better solutions. Erica has worked with many adults who as children were misdiagnosed or never diagnosed with a neurological disorders-- like ADHD-- for example. Getting a proper diagnosis can be extremely helpful for clients in understanding the unique ways in which their brain works. So many clients come to therapy with negative self-talk – listening to the negative voice in their head. Erica takes a strengths-based approach to examine this negative voice and partner with clients to develop skills to limit distorted, unhelpful beliefs. It takes emotional work to undo patterns of thinking that do not serve us well; in therapy, you don’t have to go through that alone. Erica believes that navigating all of life’s stressors and transitions can be challenging and reaching out for solutions, even on a short-term basis, can be helpful. She is available for telehealth appointments.
