"Erica is the most understanding, compassionate, empathetic, and wise person I know. She came into my life during I time I was severely floundering due to some interpersonal relationship issues involving my family, and was able to help me look at things in a way that allowed me to go forward in life no longer stuck in the mire of frustration and sadness. I was able to examine my own place in the situation with her supportive guidance in a way that was nonthreatening and non-judgmental.
As in-tune to emotions as Erica is, she is also extremely logical and can literally breakdown highly charged situations into “bites” that can be either savored, endured, digested, or purged, whatever your soul is needing at the time. She’s like my own personal sage who has provided wisdom and guidance as I find my way along my personal path. I highly recommend having her walk beside you as well if you’re a little lost and searching for your way to get back on your own path in this journey called life."

"I have attended several of Erica’s relationship classes and found them to be very helpful in navigating the dating world. Once in a relationship, Erica’s coaching helped me make good decisions and identify my unhealthy patterns. I wholeheartedly recommend Erica for your personal growth needs!"

"Being close friends, I know that Erica doesn't just talk the talk; she walks the walk. Before we met, I had heard that she had made great strides with bridging the emotional gap and healing the trauma (due to the childhood abuse) with her mother in the two years before her mother passed away from cancer. Now, as close friends, I have had the unique vantage of observing (up close and personal) a significant transformational season and experience in her life in 2019-2020.
When Erica found out that her father was dying, she lovingly stepped up to be there for him even though he lived 1300 miles away and she had a business to run. Because of the mistreatment from her dad since childhood, she could have legitimately chosen to show up in a minimal way. Instead, she helped him in a very substantial way with health matters, estate matters, and relationship matters. She put herself in harms way (from continued verbal, emotional and psychological mistreatment) while also growing in her ability to protect herself through carefully thought out, loving, effective and balanced boundaries. She was able to help her father:
acknowledge the harmful patterns of his behavior (to her and others), recognize when he was in the midst of doing it again, and change his behavior! She was loving, vulnerable, and firm while she called forth the best from her father.
I also witnessed her make connections about how the dynamics that existed in her relationship with her parents were playing out in her partnerships and love relationships as an adult. We've had many discussions on "attachment styles" and how they affect our lives and drive our decisions AND how important it is to HEAL these so we can move into "secure" attachment.
Coaching oneself to greater results is a mark of a GREAT coach. Coaching others (parents) WHILE in the painful transformation, is incredibly remarkable! Because she has first hand experience with DOING the work to become emotionally healthy, she can help others do it as well. Examples of Erica's personal growth inspires me to become a better version of myself."
"Working with Erica had a long lasting impact on me. She taught me to be better organized, to be proactive in preventing issues, and to better communicate when issues did arise. To this day, I stay in contact with her and reach out for personal and professional guidance. She has been such a positive influence in both areas of my life."

"I wish I could carry Erica in my pocket when I talk with my boyfriend. She seems to be able to see both sides so well."
