Erika Berg

MAT, LCPC (Glen Ellyn)

    “As a trained counselor and art therapist, I believe that there is an innate creativity in each and every one of us. Sometimes life puts bumps on our path and being able to explore these experiences with safety, compassion, and curiosity help to reintegrate us back into wholeness. My favorite part of being on this journey alongside my clients is being able to bear witness to the re-connections to those parts of themselves that may have gotten buried or disconnected. I adapt my therapeutic approach through the lens of a client-centered and strengths-based perspective, often using not only art therapy, but Somatic Experiencing and EMDR, as well. I believe that the therapeutic relationship is founded on nurturing a safe and supportive environment, fostering creativity and collaboration, and building the capacity for the full spectrum of expression and resiliency. I have experience in working with mood disorders, substance abuse disorders, and trauma. I trust in the mind-body-spirit connection and have the utmost regard for the intrinsic ability each one of us possesses to grow and create lasting change in our lives. I am truly honored to have the privilege in witnessing the strength, vulnerability, and courage embedded within each individual’s personal journey blossom and flourish. I see clients in the Glen Ellyn office.”
