Project Description

Have you ever said to yourself, part of me feels one way, but part of me feels another? If so, you are not alone. I believe that through each of our experiences, parts are created to help us manage our emotions and keep us safe. Through therapy, we can get to know those parts and improve your relationship with them. It is through that process that I believe healing and change occurs.

Eric brings an authentic soft-heartedness, curiosity, and acceptance for each of his clients and the parts they bring in. Eric believes a sense of safety and trust is the foundation of any therapeutic relationship. He collaborates with his clients to build a non-judgmental space where they feel safe to process past and present experiences at a pace his clients are comfortable with. Every part of you is welcome in that space.

Eric’s clinical areas of interest include working with adolescents and adults from diverse backgrounds in individual, relationship, and family counseling.
