Erika Oliver, MA

Erika has been working in the field of behavioral health and addiction for 18 years. As a therapist, she offers clients a warm environment to work on exploration of self and their interaction within their world. She feels that clients benefit from a nurturing place to heal, and she provides that in her practice.

Erika believes that the most vital part of therapy is the development of a therapeutic relationship. Through this relationship clients can have the trust to work on themselves from an honest place within a gentle and safe environment. Such an environment requires liberation from the judgment and critiques that clients have often experienced throughout their lifetime. The client’s strengths and personal preferences will dictate different therapeutic approaches and interventive strategies.

Erika specializes in addiction and issues resulting from unresolved trauma and grief. She has

experience in outpatient, hospital, and residential settings. Erika’s current focus has been integrating a holistic care approach with a concentration on wellness through exercise, nutrition, yoga, and other holistic practices.

Erika graduated with her Bachelor’s degree in psychology from Hope College. She graduated from Western Michigan University in 2007 with her Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology with a specialty in addiction. She is a Limited Licensed Psychologist.

Accepted insurance plans: BCBS, BCN, Cofinity, Aetna, ASR, Priority Health, Magellan, Out-of-Network, Private Pay
