Hi! My name is Erica Smith Jimenez and I am a licensed marriage and family therapist. I work with individuals of all ages, couples, and families specializing in support for teens and parents.

I enjoy working with clients with a focus on assisting them in managing emotions, developing positive coping strategies, deepening relationships with others and navigating conflicts in their lives while fostering improved self-esteem.

I offer a safe space to dig into issues that are causing stagnation, sadness, frustration, pain, loneliness, and/or fear and focus on helping to foster more positive emotions with a non-judgmental and strength-based perspective. My style is direct, nurturing and down to earth. I bring an engaged and authentic presence to each session. I have seen, throughout my experience, how much positive change can occur when the optimal support is available, and I will routinely offer that to all my clients. It is with empathy, compassion, humility, experience, training and skill that I offer my clients a therapeutic relationship and tools for working through their struggles. Each person is unique with their own specific needs and I tailor my approach dependent upon those needs.

My goal is to provide my clients with tools needed so they can live a happier and healthier life!

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

I am a person that has participated in several different kinds of therapy and therapists and have never seemed to enjoy it until I met Erica. She always makes sure to listen attentively and asks appropriate follow up questions. She also helps me by being relatable and a fun human being to talk to. I most definitely recommend talking to her!

Erica is very knowledgeable in her space and at the same time she is very authentic and caring in her approach. She made it very easy for me to share my thoughts and her non-judgemental and respectful comments, helped me to share all my thoughts and open up easily to her. She has been a great help during the last 6 months as I had to navigate and make tough decisions in life.

Erica has been integral in my healing and personal growth journey thur far. She allows me to share freely and provides great insight into situations that are difficult for me to navigate. Erica creates a safe space where I feel comfortable to express what I’m feeling and she helps me dig into those feelings more so that I feel more equipped to deal with them. I look forward to our sessions every week as I always leave feeling better and with a refreshed encouraging perspective.

Erica is extremely knowledgeable. She doesn’t just hear what I am saying, but truly listens. She provides specific feedback and doesn’t give blanket statements. I greatly appreciate her sense of care and ending our sessions on a neutral or positive note rather than when our time is up. I am lucky to have found her and recommended her highly!
