Email about Erika

Erika Rosen is attuned to professional change and growth. Having spent a number of years in the business sector, Erika realized her true calling was in directly helping others and began toward the path of becoming a clinical therapist. Erika received her Master of Arts in Counseling from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology where she developed a passion for working with individuals and families that have experienced trauma.

Erika received her clinical license and became a Certified Domestic Violence Professional. She has extensive experience working with individuals, children, and families in several different settings. Erika’s professional experience encompasses a wide variety of challenges that individuals face such as depression, anxiety, relationship and family issues, abuse, and trauma.

Prior to joining Willis, Erika has experience as a program director and manager of an inpatient/outpatient clinic for survivors of trauma and their families. Erika continues to educate and train healthcare professionals about the intricacies of trauma and interpersonal violence to help increase knowledge about the effects of trauma.

Trauma work has played a critical role within Erika’s practice. Erika believes that the three most important facets of therapy include: exploration, understanding, and growth. In order to reach these goals, Erika works to develop a physically and emotionally “brave” space that is warm, open, and empathic. Erika is someone that opens up space in the therapy setting in order to help an individual along a journey of healing and reflection. Erika utilizes Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, and other mindfulness/relaxation techniques during sessions. She also includes alternative approaches in her sessions and utilizes a feminist approach in therapy.

Originally from Ohio, Erika enjoys spending time with friends, family, and exploring all that Chicago has to offer. Erika is currently accepting guests at the Wicker Park location.
