Hello! I’m Erica

MS, LPC, LMFT

I work with children prenatal to adolescence and specialize in working with children under the age of 5 alongside their caregivers. As a mom, I am realizing more and more that raising children is hard and you cannot do it alone. I’m thankful to have a team of Jesus, my husband and sometimes other friends and family. I enjoy getting the privilege of coming alongside caregivers as they walk with their children towards healing. I believe this is a journey in which Jesus is the true healer and sometimes he chooses to work through me. I have worked with children and families most of my adult life. For seven years prior to joining the Fresh Roots team, I did counseling at a local Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC). During my time at the CAC, I worked with children and families whose lives had been impacted by abuse, neglect, or some other form of trauma. I look forward to helping you and your family however I can.
