Born in North Carolina and raised in Georgia. Erica is half Okinawaiian Japanese and American Russian Jew. She graduated from Naropa University with an MA in Mindfulness-based Transpersonal Counseling. With great attention to what makes each of us unique, Erica loves to support clients in feeling more whole as themselves. Our journeys as humans can feel quite isolating and confusing. Erica has had the training to work with cases involving human rights, social justice, and domestic violence. With the capacity to hold the light just as much as the dark, she specializes in domestic violence, trauma, and anxiety, and is training to learn more about how to treat OCD. Erica utilizes Mindfulness-based Therapy, Gestalt, DBT, CBT, and ExRP to assist clients in navigating their journeys.
It is important that clients find comfort in their own process as well as the working relationship over time. The emphasis on comfort brings Erica great joy in knowing that clients feel well taken care of.
