About Me

My name is Erica, and I have been working in the field of social work for over 20 years. I’ve been in private practice since the past 8 years.

About My Family

I am a mom of two boys and two cats. They keep me hopping. I’m actively involved in my kids’ school.

About My Professional Experience

There will only be one expert in the room that matters when we talk – and that is you, as you are the only expert in your own life. I am there to listen to your story; not leading, just walking alongside you as you travel down a road that will become easier the further you go, making sense of what is happening to you in your life. My specializations are grief work, families, children and adolescents. With a Masters degree in Social Work from Wilfrid Laurier University, my experiences help create a warm, welcoming environment that will enable you to see the past as a part of your life that does not have control of you. Life, in many ways, is one big journey made up of lots of smaller journeys. I want to empower you to make significant changes that will ensure no single part of your life controls and limits what you can feel and achieve. Based on solution-focused, narrative, acceptance and commitment therapy, it would be a privilege for me to work with you through depression, anger, stress, grief and loss, or any other negative emotions you are feeling. You will be empowered to cope with challenges, make changes in your life and most importantly, recognize that emotions are meant to be felt. You’ll understand where they are coming from, which will help you make sense of them and start enjoying life. Everyone has a story to tell, and being brave enough to let me into your life and share yours with me is the biggest and most important step. I will only accompany you on a small part of the journey, but hope what I offer can help make the rest of yours more rewarding.

I won’t give you the solution, but I will surely help you find it yourself.

About My Fun Side

I enjoy playing soccer and working out. I could spend all summer camping and canoeing. If I could go anywhere in the world, I would take my kids on an African Safari.
