My name is Erica (she/her) and I am an LPC in the sate of Michigan.
Licensed Professional Counselor in Grand Rapids, MI
I have worked with many survivors of sexual assault/abuse and helped them process the experience. I had 150+ hours of training as a sexual aggression advocate where I first got my passion for working with survivors.
At it's worst trauma can lead to flashbacks, hyper-vigilance, shame and overall affect your ability to function. It is at this point that therapy is not only helpful but necessary. I am currently in the process of becoming trained and certified in EMDR and hope to utilize that modality to help treat trauma related distress.
In my experience working with young adults I have loved helping them sort through the big changes in their life. Choosing a career, finances, identity concerns and family pressures can be so much to process alone.
