Approach to treatment

Erika approaches counseling as a person-centered, holistic, integrative, and collaborative process. Empathic support and reflection will be offered to help empower and guide you on your life journey. Erika will work together with you toward a happier, healthier, more balanced and fulfilled life and aims to provide insight and tools for self-exploration to support your own natural capacity for healing, growth, self-awareness, and wholeness. Together you’ll build a welcoming and accepting therapeutic space where you can feel safe to express your emotions, get curious about patterns, reflect on themes showing up in your life, and process challenges. All aspects of the human condition are honored as experiences to learn and grow from. We are not alone in our journey to wellness. With support, tools, mindset shifts, insights, awareness, motivation, and personal growth work we can live more expansive, intention-filled, authentic, expressive, and embodied lives.
