At some point or another, everyone has felt the need for extra support and it's nothing to feel ashamed of.
After going through a tough time and struggling with anxiety or after experiencing a traumatic event, support is extremely important.
It can be difficult to speak with family or friends about how you feel as you may wonder if they will understand or maybe, they too are struggling.
This can cause anxiety/panic attacks, feelings of loneliness and isolation.
It’s helpful to have a place where you can safely process what has happened, how you are feeling, and learn helpful techniques to overcome it.
Hi, I'm Erika Hernandez, MSW, LCSW
and I'm here to help you ...
Looking for a therapist can be overwhelming and I hope this is the first step to the beginning of a positive journey for you.

When to seek help for your Child
Do they seem nervous or on edge often?
Are they crying and refusing to go to school?
Are they complaining of headaches or stomachaches and doctors have ruled out any medical issues?
Are they isolating themselves or not engaging with family and peers as much as they used to?
I get it, it can feel really uncomfortable to seek help for your child and sometimes leave you asking,"What am I doing wrong?"
Truth is, sometimes children just need an additional support.
Relationships are hard, especially with the regular day to day responsibilities of work, children, finances, and everything else in between.
With added stress or a traumatic experience, it can make things more challenging for couples. It can start to negatively impact communication, intimacy, and quality time together.
I can help you work through those challenges and find healthy communication skills to help build your relationship to where you want it to be.
