There is no such thing as the perfect or right way to mother. Being a good mom means making decisions for your family according to YOUR values.
If you are struggling and want practical and tangible skills to apply right now, you can learn from Erica through her virtual workshops.
You can get to know and learn from Erica in her online motherhood community called Mom Freely Together with Dr. Ashurina Ream (@psychedmommy)
If you are an Ontario, Saskatchewan, British Columbia, Manitoba, or Alberta resident you can see Erica or one of her associates for Teletherapy.
Erica approaches therapy from an eclectic CBT, DBT, ACT, and attachment perspective. She is most passionate about helping mothers to understand and regulate their anger, as well as adjust to and enjoy their motherhood role.
Beyond working with adult clients, Erica also has extensive experience treating and mentoring youth and young adults. She has been very effective in treating teens who are depressed, anxious and/or who are struggling with self-harm and relationship issues.
