Hello. My name is Erika Williams. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Louisiana with over 10 years’ experience working in various setting with diverse populations.
My approach is to form a therapeutic alliance with the client. Such a relationship is essential, as it is oftentimes the first setting in which the person shares intimate thoughts, beliefs, and emotions regarding the issues in question. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, low self-esteem and trauma.
My counseling style encourages curiosity, creativity, and humility. I believe in promoting a safe environment that promotes empathy and nonjudgment. Honesty is also important as it is the foundation for healing and personal growth. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and client-centered therapy. It is my desire to help you reach you full potential as a human being and to assist others in finding the beauty within.
Courage is a virtue when we choose to do good, especially when that is most difficult. Courage is moral strength in the face of danger. Courage gives you the ability to put aside fear of failure and take the first steps. Demonstrating courage is reaching out for help!
I look forward to working with you!
