About Erica Wilcox:
I consider it both an honor and a privilege to serve as an anchor and guide for hope, health and happiness for the individuals that I work with. I firmly believe in the resiliency of the human spirit to be liberated from emotional pain, end the cycle of unhealthy habits and to find purpose in painful experiences as a means of moving forward.

I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology (Fairleigh Dickinson University, Magna Cum Laude) and Master’s Degree in Professional Mental Health Counseling (Central CT State University). I am a Certified EMDR Therapist and EMDRIA Approved Consultant with advanced training in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, Traumatic Bereavement, Eating Disorders, Dissociative Disorders, women’s trauma recovery, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I have a particular interest in the role that movement, music, wellness, and sex/intimacy plays in mental health and trauma recovery.
I specialize in the treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (C-PTSD), Anxiety, and Survivors of Intimate Partner Violence. I provide direct feedback and teach evidenced- based strategies to help my clients reach their goals. I do not believe in a “one size fits all” methodology and take a holistic approach to therapy.
