About My Clients
Erica has had personal experience with many of the same struggles that bring one to seek therapy and passionately believes in life with freedom from an eating disorder, trauma, and addiction. She views recovery as being unique to every individual and understands the vulnerability shared throughout therapy. Erica teaches the tools for one to achieve a life filled with balance, awareness, and well being to live on a mindful path of recovery.
My Background and Approach
You are not your self-destructive behavior; it has just been a way you have learned to cope. It may have worked effectively at some time to disconnect you from your true needs and feelings but if you are here, it is probably no longer serving you. Breaking free from self-destructive behavior may feel like an incredible loss. You may believe you don’t even know who you are without engaging in those behaviors. But while these behaviors may seem to be a way to detach from painful thoughts and emotions, it also results in cutting-off from positive thoughts and emotions. When is the last time you laughed, felt joy and excitement, used your imagination, been really present with people, places, and things, or felt love and hope? It is just the right time to rediscover life and reveal your true self. Because if you choose to stay locked in your own suffering then your life will be a lonely existence. Wherever you may be in your readiness is exactly the place to be to reach out for help.
