Erica is a graduate student with Syracuse University pursuing a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy. Since 2010, she has worked with families with new babies as a practicing International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, and she maintains a trauma-informed, inclusive IBCLC practice that embraces cultural humility. In 2020, Erica became a Certified Havening Techniques® Practitioner and a Death Companioning Initiate with the School of American Thanatology. She is an active member of the Hudson Valley Birth Network and the Mt. Kisco Latino Providers Network and received her undergraduate degree from the University of Chicago.

Using an empathetic, non-judgmental, collaborative approach, Erica works with adults, children, teens, partners, and families using a systemic lens, exploring not only the experiences, thoughts, feelings, and behaviors of the individual, but also the social systems that influence and impact the individual. She is deeply influenced by experiential and narrative theory and believes in the transformative power of open-minded curiosity and human connection.

In a culture of ever-increasing expectations, Erica works to create a space where it’s safe for clients to get emotionally messy and reconnect with their inner voices, helping them work through feelings of insecurity, guilt, doubt, and loss to find new confidence, self-love, joy, and peace.

We equip parents with the tools to truly understand the building blocks of child development and how secure relationships form and thrive.

With this knowledge, parents are able to develop their own personal parenting frameworks so they can respond confidently and effectively to any challenge that comes along, resulting in families that are healthier, calmer, and more connected with one another.
