  • Hi, I am Erica, a queer somatic associate marriage and family therapist who focuses on issues of abandonment, anxiety, anger, grief, trauma, holistic and spiritual health. My approach is intuitive, and you will find me non-judgmental, caring and interactive with you in your process. My somatic tools can include touch, movement, and assisted mindfulness practices. I am also harm reduction focussed.Some of my main focusses are working with issues around sex work, from a rights perspective, as well as couple's counseling, especially around issues of queerness, kink, and sex work. I am anti-oppression focussed and believe marginalized clients have the right to have access to marginalized clinicians.
