Erica Salamy, LCMHC
Seeking therapy can feel like it’s own hurdle, so I strive to provide a safe, warm, and nonjudgmental environment for you to explore your unique therapy needs. My aim, as a therapist, is to support clients in learning to recognize and use their own passions, skills, and inner strengths so that when life presents challenges, you’ll feel prepared to face them. My practice is guided by creativity, compassion, openness,
and an awareness of the individuality of our experiences.
I have seven years of experience providing trauma-informed care with a diverse range of clients and families across a variety of settings including; outpatient community mental health clinics (ages 4- elder adults), adult residential care, and elementary and high schools. I specialize in treating depression, anxiety, adjustment disorders, challenges specific to Autism Spectrum Disorders, and trauma related issues. I have a particular interest in generational-trauma, parenting issues related to trauma, and physiological responses to trauma. My practice is guided by my training in CBT and person-centered care, and embraces a multitude of ways of communicating and healing including; talk, movement, writing, visual arts, music, mindfulness.
When I’m not at work, you can find me enjoying all of the beauty that New England has to offer,
usually with my adorable Australian shepherd, Scout in tow. I love to kayak, swim, hike, and snowshoe.
I also find great comfort in cooking a meal for friends, and reading a good book.
Whether you’re seeking a neutral ear for self-exploration, or a more directive experience to build coping skills-- we’ll work together to ensure you feel supported and capable in your therapy journey and beyond.
