My overall experience with Erika was invaluable and literally life changing.  Throughout the entire process, I never felt 'weird' or 'wrong' and was able to talk about whatever I was feeling without the fear of being judged.  Erika’s professionalism and knowledge makes her nothing less than an outstanding therapist. Today, By God’s grace, I stand anxiety and depression free.   I thank God first- for creating Erika, putting her in my life and for equipping her with the gift of healing through counseling.  I thank you Erika-for being obedient to His calling and loving people so well through what you do.  If it weren’t for you, my story would have been much different."
