    Hi there, I'm Eric!
    Are you having relationship challenges? Are you dealing with emotional trauma, stress, college life challenges, marital stressors, substance abuse, depression, anxiety, or work-life balance, which has become too much? Do you want to heal the root cause of your emotional pain so you can live a pain-free life? I offer you a safe space to explore, reflect, create solutions and grow.

    My approach
    By applying time-tested therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life. My therapeutic modalities include Coaching, Cognitive Behavioral (CBT), Dialectical (DBT), Motivational Interviewing, Person-Centered, Psychodynamic, Rational Emotive Behavior (REBT), Solution Focused, and Trauma Focused therapy.

    My focus
    I am willing to see individuals, minors (ages 13-17), couples, and preteens (ages 8-12). My specialties include addiction, adolescents/teens, alcohol use, aging, anger management, anxiety, behavioral issues, career counseling, codependency, coping skills, cultural stress, depression, divorce, drug abuse, dual diagnosis, family conflict, gambling, grief, job stress, legal stress, life coaching, marital/pre-marital issues, oppositional defiance, parenting, racial identity, relapse prevention, relationship issues, school issues, self-esteem, stress, substance use, teen violence, and video game addiction.

    My communication style
    Our sessions will provide a safe, non-judgmental space where you can openly express your thoughts and feelings. Through active listening and empathetic communication, we will work collaboratively to identify challenges, set realistic goals, and develop effective strategies for positive change.

    My journey to mental healthcare
    I hold a Master of Arts degree in counseling/psychology. My journey to mental healthcare began with a deep desire to help others overcome life's challenges and achieve emotional well-being. Driven by empathy and a passion for facilitating personal growth, I dedicated myself to mastering evidence-based therapeutic approaches that empower individuals to lead fulfilling lives.

    My goals for you
    Our goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I'm here to help you achieve your goals.

    My first session with you
    During our first session, we will discuss what brings you to therapy and explore your personal history, current challenges, and aspirations. This will help me understand your unique needs and tailor our therapeutic approach accordingly. Together, we will establish a strong therapeutic alliance built on trust, respect, and open communication, setting the foundation for your journey towards healing and personal growth.
