Dr. Erickson completed her PhD at the University of Manitoba and her pre-doctoral residency at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto. She brings a breadth of experience working in a number of different settings such as hospitals, universities, private practices, and correctional facilities.
Dr. Erickson's clinical experience is primarily with individual and group cognitive-behavioural therapy for mood and anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and trauma-related disorders. She also has experience with dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) and mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT). She has a special interest in working with older adults, as her research has focused on understanding the psychological and social needs of this population and improving their access to mental health care. Dr. Erickson hopes that her clients leave feeling empowered, supported, and better situated to make meaningful changes in their lives.
