About Me

Are you ready to experience more joy and happiness in your relationship?
Are you ready to reach your goals and live a more fulfilling life?
​Are you ready to have more energy and a healthy mindset?

Is your relationship suffering? Do you feel stuck in an endless cycle of stress, anxiety, and depression? Is your self-esteem low or non-existent? Are you having problems in your relationships? Change is hard, but I believe that every person has the potential to be the best version of him or herself that he or she can be, and that you are the expert of your life. I can help you become empowered to make the changes you want for your life.

​As a therapist, I offer an honest, respectful, non-judgmental environment to empower clients to achieve short and long term goals. In this compassionate safe relationship I will support you in finding and creating meaning and purpose in your life. My counseling style is direct and interactive. We will do this by examining old beliefs and habits that have been holding you back.

The compassionate relationship that is forged in therapy can bring about the insight, clarity and love needed to begin to grow and regain hope for your future. My experience is in private practice, residential treatment centers and inpatient psychiatry for over a decade. The patient population that I have the most expertise in are Depression, Anxiety Disorders, Bipolar I and II, Borderline Personality, and other Personality Disorders.

My mission is to help others find peace, joy and love in their lives. I bring with me over a decade of experience providing individual and group counseling for all ages from 4 years of age and up. My integrated approach is tailored to the individual using methods in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical behavior therapy, Mindfulness, and Solution-focused therapy techniques.

Erica is passionate about helping people figure out where they want and need to be. She shows compassion but will be honest with you. She is supportive and I feel like she is always there! She responds so quickly and will even check in when I haven't reached out in awhile. Our phone conversations never feel cut short and I always feel relief and have direction when we are done. Erica is awesome. ♥️

Erica is extremely helpful and unbiased which is just what you’d want! She’s great and I would recommend her to anyone who feels they need some relationship (or life) guidance.

I've really enjoyed working with Erica. I was a tad bit skeptical about trying online therapy, but it didn't feel much different from meeting in person and was so much more convenient. Erica was easy to talk to, raised good questions and was flexible with what we discussed. I would definitely recommend her.

Erica has been a great help over the last month since we started. She is easy to talk to, pragmatic, responsive and funny! I would definitely reccommend Erica to anyone looking for couples counseling.

Erica is kind, considerate and especially, compassionate. Her professional, yet personable temperament helps me be able to open up on a level deeper than I've ever gone with anyone before without risk of feeling judged or put down. Her compassion-based approach is helping me solve years of degrading conflict inside of me and helping heal areas I was certain would never change. I'm looking forward to seeing my marriage thrive as I continue to get healthier with her help.

She is amazing. Doesn’t have a one sided opinion, and offers a amazing 3rd person perspective of any situation.

Erica has been great. As a queer couple, my partner and I weren't sure how ReGain would work, but we feel lucky to have a chance to work with Erica, who is very helpful and supportive. We appreciate the flexibility of scheduling, as our work weeks are often hectic.

Wow, Erica has been so amazing for myself and for my relationships. She truly listens to you and makes you figure it out together, which is what I want. She makes me think critically about my emotions and actions and she always makes sure I know she is not judging, just asking and recommending. Sometimes I still wonder why I can't find someone like this in person, but the video, phone, and text chats are so well rounded that I don't even notice she isn't local. She has also been so patient and kind and understanding with my husband and myself. She truly makes us both feel like we are heard and understood while finding mutually beneficial ways to resolve and talk about our issues. Both of us were really worried about a counselor taking "sides" because of our past experiences, but she really didn't and even when we brought up sensitive subjects she was not phased and did not show surprise or any judgement. I can't recommend her enough and have truly appreciated her skills. We've "paused" our counseling for a few months at a time and whenever we need some extra guidance or help we come back to her and it's so great knowing she already knows our key issues and our history.

With the short time my husband and I have been talking with Erica Mau, we have grown and are still learning.
