Therapy is about YOU: your pain and struggles, your hopes and dreams. It takes place in a safe environment where you can work on feeling better.
Opening up to anybody can be challenging, especially when the person sitting across from you is a stranger. Creating a place where you feel comfortable, understood, and valued is the key to any relationship, including a counselor-client relationship. With me, your counseling experience will be a time of safety, peace, and growth.
The approach to counseling is different for everyone depending on individual goals and desires. YOU are the driving force of the therapeutic process. My role is to help guide you and partner with you in quest for change.
Ana Ervin, M.A., LPCA
Board Certified Counselor
Being a counselor is a responsibility that I take very seriously. Sharing your fears and pains, your hopes and dreams with a stranger takes courage, and I respect my clients for doing so. I became a counselor because I felt called to help individuals transform their lives.
I've been through tough issues in my life. Many of my practice techniques I learned in dealing with my particular issues, and the real experiences I have had have made me a better counselor who understands what you are going through because I have been there myself.
When I'm not working, I make creations with essential oils, play with my golden retriever, Ringo, go to the beach or shop. Together with my husband, Dave, we are raising two daughters, 4 and 16 years old.
