Hi, I’m Erika.
But this is about you, not me.
Choosing a therapist can be an overwhelming task. And let’s face it; you’re looking for a therapist because you’re already overwhelmed. There are so many of us, you’ll be vulnerable, and you don’t want to tell your story over and over to a bunch of different people until you find the right fit. Or worse yet, stick it out with a therapist that doesn’t fit. I don’t want that either, so I hope this will help you decide if we’ll work well together.
I’m from New Jersey, so I lack southern charm and the “bless your heart” gene. I’m direct because I want you to succeed. If you’re looking for someone to smile and nod, we probably won’t work well together. But, if you’re ready to be challenged, to dive into what’s really going on, and to work to make some changes, we might be a good fit. You can schedule a free 15-minute phone call with me to truly decide.
Now, my qualifications: I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). I earned my Master’s in Social Work from Barry University in Miami Shores, Florida in 2010. I have been in practice ever since, working at psychiatric and medical hospitals providing counseling both in- and outpatient for a whole host of issues. If you’re afraid your problems are so bad, you’ll scare me, think again. I’m difficult to shock. I use a variety of evidenced-based practices based on each individual’s needs. There is no one-size-fits-all approach here.
I hope this was helpful and I invite you over to the contact page to schedule a phone call or a session.
