Hi, I’m Erica Thibodeaux, and I’m so happy you are here!ericaprofile184

I received a Master’s degree in Professional Counseling from Winona State University and I’m licensed to practice in Minnesota under clinical supervision. I’m trained as a health & sex educator, and workshop facilitator and I have experience working at the university level as an instructor and program developer.

I work with people experiencing anxiety, depression, anger, addiction, guilt, shame, stress, trauma, chronic pain, disease, feelings of emptiness, and/or feelings of longing for something more.

I work with teens and young adults experiencing issues related to anxiety, depression, body image disorders, insecurity, doubt, social frustration, adoption, trauma, and identity.

I’m committed to your personal growth and empowerment. I’ve helped individuals go from a stressful life to a successful life by assisting them in creating balance and wellness.  I use transformational techniques to motivate and encourage individuals to shift their mindsets to finding true passion and discovering their authentic self.

I’ve helped couples learn healthy relationship skills, build strong partnerships, reconnect with passion, and overcome communication problems.

I’ve helped families learn to communicate, work through difficult stages, identify and resolve unhealthy patterns, and reach healthier and happier dynamics.

In workshops I’ve helped folks to find their way into incredible healing and transformation.

I’d be honored to support you in making intentional change in your life as well.

What I do

I use creative and empowering methods to evoke client-centered transformation and that provide individuals, couples, and families with tools to take away with and use over their lifetime.
