Eric has over fourteen years of experience working in the community with children, adolescents, young adults, adults, and families who have mental health, substance use, trauma, or developmental needs. He obtained his master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of the Cumberlands, and is a Licensed Professional Counselor Candidate (LPCC).
He specializes in creative, diverse, and interpersonal approaches to therapy that help build a compassionate, positive, and encouraging therapeutic relationship. He feels that one of the most crucial elements in developing a therapeutic relationship is being genuine and empathic. He also believes that the most profound factor in therapy is that when given a chance, everyone can grow, change, and progress.
Eric considers himself to be an eclectic therapist. He uses an existential/humanistic and person-centered approach while using techniques from Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution Focused Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.
In his spare time he enjoys spending time with his family, two cats, and two dogs. He enjoys reading, especially science fiction and fantasy, listening to music, playing video games, and hiking.
