Hi, I'm Erika Hernandez, MSW, LCSW
If you're seeking therapy, it's probably because you are struggling right now and not happy with how things are going. I always say that change is uncomfortable and I will challenge you to get out of that comfort zone. However, I can assure you that, when we begin to work on that change and you start feeling uncomfortable, it's when we truly see things get better.
A Little About Me...
I opened E H Counseling LLC in 2018 and am super passionate about providing quality therapeutic services. I specialize in working with those who have experienced trauma or are struggling with anxiety and provide counseling in both English and Spanish to residence of New Jersey.
So what's it like working with me?
The first session will focus on getting some background information, understanding what is going on, and setting up a clear plan for treatment.
By the second session, we roll up our sleeves and get to work! If you are struggling with anxiety, I starting teaching you techniques that work to help you manage the anxiety and start feeling better.
If you have experienced trauma, I provide you with helpful techniques to manage the emotions associated with what you have experienced as a way to lay down the foundation to begin processing your trauma.
I'd love to walk alongside you as you head on the journey of getting better!
