Meet Erika Young, MS, NCC, LPC
Licensed Professional Counselor
Erika Young is licensed in the state of Georgia having graduated from Georgia State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. She has an MS in Mental Health Counseling from Capella University, and she is proudly trauma-certified.
My Mission as a Therapist
My mission is to help people transform their personal and relationship challenges into life-enhancing opportunities for growth. I provide a safe and understanding space for healing and resolving problems so my clients can obtain tranquility and positive, lasting changes in their inner lives and relationships.
My Counseling Style
As a counselor dedicated to creating an environment focused on the client, Erika Young offers an empathetic approach that empowers and motivates the client to tell his or her story.
As a client, you are encouraged to help develop solutions to your problems, and Erika will offer you direction, compassion and accountability.
Erika utilizes traditional therapy approaches (CBT, Solution Focused, etc) and connects the use of esoteric practices to promote total body healing. Esoteric practices include discussions surrounding numerology, past life, astrology, chakra alignment. Healing is promoted through the completion of shadow work that involves deep dives into dissecting inner childhood wounds. The goal is to empower the client to evolve into their best self and elevate to new levels in their lives.
Additionally, Erika offers focused, comprehensive work in the following areas:
- Spiritual Awakening
- Life Changes
When you feel better about yourself both physically and mentally then you will begin to cultivate the resilience and strength that is needed to tackle life’s challenges.
Let’s get you on your way to leading a healthy life. We are just a phone call away.
At first I was hesitant about therapy. The unknown of what it would be like or personally just telling and trusting a stranger with my deepest thoughts and feelings was scary. Since taking the big leap I have never been more comfortable in the skin I am in. Erika has been patient with me and allowed me to peel back one layer at a time. I enjoy the self pace sessions that she facilitates which allows me to ramble if I need to or simple just spend time going deep into my past. I ALWAYS learn something from our sessions that I can take with me and for me that’s a win win! I highly recommend!
When I first came to Erika, I felt as if I was spiraling out of control. No balance between work and personal life, controlling in parenting with my husband, etc. Throughout my continued time with Erika, not only have I been able to work through the aforementioned struggles, but I have also worked through the loss of my mom and miscarriage. I have recommended Erika to family and friends. She is amazing at what she does and is heaven sent!”
Our daughter has been receiving services from Erika since September 2019 and the work she has done has been no less than a blessing. Erika has been phenomenal to work with as she is easy to get in contact with, has a flexible schedule, and has such passion for her work. She has exhibited such easy access to conversing with her regarding our daughter and she has been very impressionable with her as well. Our daughter speaks highly or Erika and the services she receives. She has been such an important part in our daughter’s healing process. We recommend her for any young lady or person in getting the healing she/he needs.
