book Erika to speak

On stage, I bring a warm intensity. i command with the truth, and am light at heart. i speak with rawness. i quickly connect with the audience in a way that makes them feel deeply seen and heard. i seek to understand what people want in their hearts, and then shows them how to get it. i challenge people to step into their full potential, and make topics that can be seen as dark and scary, as warm, inviting and exciting. When you spend time with me, you will feel lighter, more at peace, and accepted for exactly who you are.

"Erika is a dynamic combination of calm and energizing. She is the kind of person you meet and immediately are drawn to spend more time with. I had the opportunity to partner with Erika on a community initiative to address the ever-prevalent burn out that people are experiencing where Erika did a phenomenal presentation that had the audience very engaged. 

Erika was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was a natural presenter, connecting to the audience instantly. Erika seamlessly bridged her clinical experience and human connection. She brought an unparalleled level of passion sharing the power of relationships and community". -

Too many of us deal with continual high-pressure situations and she is the light that can lead us to a better place.
