Who I Am
My name is Erica Velasco. I am a bilingual Latinx Associate Marriage and Family Therapist, who is passionate about creating a space for healing hearts and bodies, through authentic connection. When I’m not working, you will find me in my garden, hanging out at a coffee shop, going on adventures with my family and friends, or working on DIY projects in my home. I identify as first-gen (both my parents immigrated from Mexico), partnered, mother of two humans, various four-legged friends, and too many plant babies to count.
Who I work with
I have worked with people from all ranges in the human lifespan such as children/teens/adults and those impacted by generational trauma, depression, and anxiety. I wish to work with those who want to feel safe, seen, and heard so that they may live the life they see worth living. Throughout this process, we will plant seeds of change and unearth the roots of traumas that have been stored in the body for you to grow and flourish.
My work is rooted in anti-oppressive, trauma informed, holistic, and culturally humble practices. My therapeutic approach is client centered and experiential in nature. Emotional situations from the past and recent relationships are explored with curiosity and creativity to gain deeper access to unresolved traumas. In my sessions, I also take a somatic approach as I believe that the mind, body, spirit, and emotions are interconnected. We use mind-body exercise such as deep breathing, relaxation exercise and meditation to help release tension, anger, frustration in the body to allow you to engage fully in life.
