Hello! I’m Connie Eriksson
It’s not just a bad day or a sad mood. Depression steals your joy and can sometimes make it difficult to even get out of bed, be productive, or even enjoy your friends and family.
Grief and Loss
The loss of a loved one is one of the most difficult hardships we will endure in life. There is no “normal” timeline for grief. Grief counseling can give you the support you need to help you move through your pain and eventually rediscover some of the richness of life.
Life rarely goes as planned. And transitions can feel really scary. Maybe you are questioning the things you thought you knew or wanted. Transitions are also a time of opportunity.
No doubt, caring for a loved one is stressful. It is difficult to balance the needs of everyone in your life, including your own needs. I have years of experience helping caregivers cope with the many physical and emotional challenges of caregiving.
Nothing prepares you for life with a chronic or terminal illness. There are so many physical and emotional changes. So many decisions to be made and the people in your life don’t always know how to support you.

Choosing a therapist
With so many therapists, choosing one can be overwhelming. Who is right for me? Who will help me the most? My best advice, advice that I would give to family and friends, is to pick a therapist who “gets” you. Time and time again, the research shows that the connection the client feels with the therapist is more important to feeling better than any specific technique or treatment used.
What separates me from other therapists
• I am solution focused.
• I am interactive.
• I will listen until you feel understood.
• I excel at taking big concepts and breaking them down into small, actionable steps.
• I curse sometimes (sorry, mom).
• I will help you find new perspectives.
Individual & Couples Therapy
Therapy solves problems!
Therapy can be a dynamic and interactive process that focuses on strengths, helping you to find solutions and reach your goals. Therapy is talking, listening, wondering about different viewpoints, discovering why you may think and act the way you do, and problem-solving. If you are in session with a good therapist, you will feel safe to share the good, the bad and the ugly; the painful and the hilarious. And you will learn tools and strategies for feeling better and becoming better.
