Erica Daudt, LMHC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

I specialize in helping people move away from shame-based beliefs about themselves. Shame is a menacing driver behind much emotional suffering and common behavioral problems, such as eating disorders, chronic anxiety & depression, and low self-worth.

According to Brené Brown, renowned shame researcher, "Shame is the intensely painful feeling or experience of believing we are flawed and therefore unworthy of acceptance and belonging."

If this resonates for you I believe you have suffered far too long. I take great pride in seeing my clients find healing from shame and look forward to working with you!

Compassion-Based Approach

Expertise That Makes a Difference

 

Individual Therapy

One-On-One Support

The goal of therapy is to equip you with the tools and insights to help you get unstuck. Unlike well-meaning friends or family, I am able to offer an uncomplicated perspective into your struggle. In an atmosphere where you don't need to meter your thoughts or emotions for fear of judgment or of burdening your loved ones, you are able to honestly process your internal world, which is where I believe lasting healing can take shape.

My approach seeks to challenge areas where you might be contributing to your own suffering and to encourage acceptance of the hard realities that your life is beckoning for you to collaborate with, both of which are needed for a more empowered, peaceful relationship with yourself and others.

Clinical Supervision

Excellence in Counselor Development

The goal of clinical supervision is to facilitate a comfortable learning environment for associate-level counselors to wrestle with the complexities of the vocation.

My approach seeks to create space for supporting your skill growth, professional development, theoretical utilization, case conceptualization understanding, and self-awareness as it applies to your work with clients and your goals as a therapist.
