Hello! My name is Eric and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor here in Pennsylvania providing remote online counseling services. I have been providing counseling services for the last 6 years and have worked with many different adults and adolescents struggling with a wide variety of life issues including anxiety, depression, academic and career concerns, social anxiety, self-esteem, relationship challenges and more. I have earned this experience working in a variety of inpatient and outpatient mental health and substance abuse agencies.
My approach is to give you the time and space necessary to feel comfortable discussing some of these challenges with me. It can be difficult to discuss and express what we are feeling, and I feel it is important for there to be a comfortable, confidential, trusting and non-judgmental environment when working together. It is okay to not be okay, and I hope I can be the person to help you through the challenges and struggles you are going through. In counseling, I utilize a person-centered approach in treatment while adding in techniques based in cognitive behavior therapy, solution-focused therapy, and creative therapeutic techniques when appropriate.
Outside of counseling, I teach psychology courses, exercise, play video games, and use my creative skills to paint or play guitar.
