Erica Johnston

Marriage and Family Therapist Associate

Hi there. My name is Erica and I am a Marriage and Family Therapist Associate. Connecting with others has always given me strength and brought meaning to my life so choosing this profession felt natural. Having the opportunity to support others during their most difficult times and to be trusted with vulnerable content is an honor I do not take lightly.

I enjoy playing games, cooking delicious food, spending time with my family, watching horror movies, and snuggling with my pets.

Erica's Approach

I practice from a family systems perspective which means I view individuals based on how they fit within the different parts of their life (family, friends and peers, school, work). I believe having a genuine connection with your therapist, willingness to contemplate your own choices and experiences, and determination to make improvement in daily thinking and relationship quality are all needed for a successful therapeutic experience.
