Erika Parker, LPC (She/Her)
I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified EMDR Therapist and the Owner at Pieces of Me Counseling, LLC. I am passionate about helping individuals find peace and relief from their challenges and struggles in life. I have worked with a wide variety of adults, children, and families in different settings and in different stages of need over the past 16 years.
I draw from a collaborative and integrative strengths-based approach to therapy, incorporating EMDR, Brainspotting, and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy. I work with ages 16 and up. I specialize in trauma, depression, and anxiety. I also enjoy working with individuals struggling with self-esteem, specific stressors faced by BIPOC communities, women’s issues--infertility, PCOS, and those seeking ways to manage stress more effectively.
I provide a welcoming and affirming environment so you can explore your concerns in a warm, caring, and nonjudgmental space. Whether you are feeling stuck, overwhelmed, flooded by emotions, struggling to feel connected to others, or longing to reconnect or get to know yourself again; we will work together to navigate your journey. Let me join you to create meaningful change both within yourself and with the important people in your life.
