Therapy modalities Erica uses in her counselling practice

I offer a positive, non-judgmental, open space for you to explore. I use various techniques including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for anxiety and/or depression and Motivational Interviewing – what keeps you doing what you’re doing? I offer a person-centered, solution-focused, problem-solving counselling experience; you are the expert of your life, and I can offer you tools and help you to move through what has brought you to the counselling space.

Personal qualities / strengths as a counsellor

I am a positive, upbeat person, who takes good care of their physical and mental health through grounding, exercise and paying attention to my needs. I am a believer in asking for help and tapping into supports available. I have natural qualities that find myself in helping roles.

In a counselling session with me, you can expect to be heard, challenged, and assigned homework. You can expect professional and confidential counselling services, helping you to live your best life through personal healing, reflection, growth and positive life choices. Let’s set some goals together and help you to move through your identified challenges!
