"In this world you will have trouble, but take heart, because I’ve told you all this so that trusting me, you will be unshakable and assured, deeply at peace. In this godless world you will continue to experience difficulties. But take heart! I’ve conquered the world. " Jesus Christ Matthew 16:33.
Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior and it through Him, I have the gift of counseling and helping those who are in bondage to Satan and are deceived by his lies. Jesus never promised that His children would not suffer in this world, He promised that we would various trials and temptations, but we have what we need to overcome them all. I had not fully accepted this basic truth until the last few years. God has opened my eyes to the truth and now I can share this truth with who will ever listen. The fight against our souls is very real, there is an enemy who wants to totally destroy anyone who calls themselves a Christian. His weapons of warfare attack our minds, and our weapons for warfare is the Lord our God. That is why we are 'put on the whole amour of God' because the battle is real, but the battle is not our own. Faith is just like a muscle, it is built up by the working out of faith by the challenges we face in this life. We as Christians have all we need to heal, overcome, and achieve victory in our lives over any problem. I know this from personal experience. God saved me even while I was living in blatant rebellion against Him. I always believed there was a God, I grew up in the church but I strayed away when I got to college, I fell for the lie that all religions are the same. As long as we have breath, God has a purpose for each and every person who is a believer, unfortunately, many become overwhelmed because of the troubles of this world. It was not until a friend invited me to her church that I heard the gospel truly for the first time. I had heard sermons before but my heart was not ready until February 9, 2009. From that one day I visited the church, that very first message cut me to the heart and I made my confession, got baptized and ever since then God has been building me up for His specific purpose. I desire to helps those who feel lost at sea, drowning without hope, there is hope, and His name is Jesus Christ. The Word of God is the only thing that makes sense of all the evil and suffering in this world. Being a Christian does not mean that you won't mess up. We are all human, and we all fall short of the glory of God, but God is so loving and merciful, we can repent and He forgives us, but His mercy is not to be taken for granted, grace is not a license to just live anyway we want, this is the snare that Satan likes to catch us with. Being a Christian is supposed to be different from the world, we have a different citizenship and it is not of this world, but the one to come, which will never end and will be absolutely perfect, with no more evil, no more tears, no more pain. My role is help other believers to remember and understand the promises of God. It is God's job to change the heart. It is so sad how so many look to world for the answers to their problems, when God the One Who Created us, is the Master problem solver.

Erica has really been a God send.
Erica is very professional and insightful about what my needs are. She has provided me with a fresh perspective on the things I need to do in order to succeed. I don't feel like I'm just being fed stock advice, but that she is actually tailoring her responses to me individually.
Erica is a great listener and has excellent, mature, and unbiased insight. She has been a source of strength and support during a povital time of growth for me. Thank you, Erica!
She is very patient, kind, understanding. I love how she offers a point of view for me to think from in order to get through my days
Erica Harris is a very wise and gifted lady!
This woman of God is truly heaven sent! Couldn’t have asked for a more transparent, understanding counselor. She’s really amazing at what she does. Glory to God.
She is very attentive, supporting and a great listener!
My first session with Erica was very helpful. She comes across as very professional and at the same time warm and sympathetic.
Erica is highly intuned with what the situation is. Her advice and direction has been far above anyone I have ever met.
Erica is a warm, even tempered empathic counselor.
This counseling process has been incredible. So nice to talk to someone not close to the situation that will listen and comment. Also great to do this from home. Love the Godly counsel.
Erica is attentive and very easy to talk to and let’s her patients lead the conversation in hopes that they can talk about what is bothering them the most. She knows the Bible and gives retrospect with how it can help or relate to what we are going through at the time
It’ was apparent when I began counseling that Erica has a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and shares her knowledge through scriptures and common sense. Although she’s highly educated she comes across as a caring sister in the Lord full of wisdom and knowledge. Erica’s not lukewarm in her understanding of scripture, therefore she’s not timid when confronted with ‘big issues’ of mature persons as myself- with lots of complex life experiences. I’m not only a active Christian for 40 years but I’m also married to PhD Psychologist 30.+ and soon my daughter will be receiving her doctrine as well. I’ve never felt comfortable going to a office for therapy. I thank God I found Erica and faithful counseling. “I can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens me”
