Erica Warshawer | LCSW
Erica brings 18 years of experience and a range of therapeutic modalities to clients. In addition to working with children, adolescents, and adults in out-patient therapeutic settings, she spent 10 years supervising and training clinicians across the Mid-Atlantic. She has taught at University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate School of Social Work and her work has been published in School Services Sourcebook, Third Edition through the University of Texas. Her favorite quote from a client is, “I don’t know what kind of witch doctor you are, but this stuff WORKS.” While neither a witch nor a doctor, Erica blends familiarity and flexibility with intentionality and evidence-based interventions to help her clients on their journeys of personal transformation.
Erica graduated from Silberman School of Social Work with a clinical focus on children, youth and families and later continued post-graduate training with Ackerman Institute for the Family in NYC for couples and families using a strengths-based, relational and family systems approach. Her areas of expertise include: Depression, Anxiety, Trauma, Mindfulness, Adolescent Mental Health, EMDR and LGBTQIA+ issues. Erica is currently working toward an instructor certificate for trauma-informed yoga and social-emotional workshop facilitation to incorporate these interventions in her work with clients.
Erica is a mother, wife, crunchy cookie connoisseur, and is always looking for a reason to build something (she takes advantage of any excuse to use a power tool). Among her favorite things are
glitter, coffee, bowling pin shaped ducks (they are hilarious looking), borders (the places where two things meet is the most interesting), comfortable but cool shoes, the smell of sawdust, creating holiday
magic, learning new things and seeing the twinkle in someone’s eyes when they light up with joy.
