About me

Hello there!

My name is Eric and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I have been working as a counselor since 2011 following graduating with my Master's degree in Mental Health Counseling. I began working in the field as a therapist on an inpatient psychiatric unit leading groups and providing individual counseling for several years before transitioning to providing telephonic support and crisis interventions. Through these experiences I have worked with a wide array of individuals from all walks of life to better understand and cope with mental health diagnosis and stressors in life ranging from anxiety and depression to grief, trauma, and abuse, and other crisis experienced through life.

In therapy my primary style is implementing a person-centered approach to meet you where you are at in this moment, to get a sense of who you are and a basic "snapshot" of the present, discussing and getting an understanding of the current situation that you are experiencing, how it is impacting you and how this led you to seek additional supports and services, then working together to come up with a "game plan" moving forward. As we move forward I often utilize pieces and ideas from Brief Solution-Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and as a future-oriented piece Positive Psychology. By working together to set realistic goals and start the process of building up coping skills and strategies moving forward, my hope is that we can walk side-by-side into what hopefully can be a better and healthier future for you.

I look forward to hearing from you and working together in the near future!

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Eric Weaver. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Faithful Counseling might be different.
