Professional statement

Erika Nagy is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who specializes in working with young adults, adults, couples, and parents. She has over 15 years of experience in private practice, helping clients navigate such issues as anxiety, trauma, relationships, and work stress.

Individual clients often come to Erika when they’re experiencing elevated levels of anxiety or panic, which could stem from childhood trauma or negative experiences. She uses a melded approach that incorporates the open-ended nature of psychoanalysis into the mind-body awareness of Somatic Experiencing and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. This blended approach empowers clients to both explore deep-rooted causes of anxiety or depression, while also learning self-soothing external mechanisms.

Additionally, Erika is a trained PACT couples therapist who often sees couples for such issues as difficulty reconciling communication styles, intimacy concerns, parenting a teen with emotional challenges, or transitioning to an empty nest.

Erika believes strongly in the fundamental power and importance of human connection. She looks forward to helping her clients work towards a place where they are fully engaged in the present, and fostering authentic relationships.


Message to clients

Growth doesn't happen in a straight line, nor does it happen over night. However, change is possible. Change takes commitment, trust, and a willingness to explore. As a therapist, I'm committed to creating a safe, nonjudgmental environment where we work together, to help guide you to take action, create hope, and manage life's challenges.
