Hi, I'm Erika Hernandez and I'm here to Help
I understand that difficult situations and traumatic events can cause one to struggle with many different emotions and can leave us feeling very alone. That's why I am here to help. With years of experience working with adults, couples, adolescents, and children who have experienced trauma, I understand the importance of the therapeutic relationship and the process of finding the treatment modality that works best for you.
I am passionate about therapy because I have seen the benefits of it! It brings me great joy to see my clients improve and find peace and healing in their life. That’s why I named my practice E H Counseling which stands for Empowering to Heal. I believe every person has the power to find the healing they deserve.

I received my undergraduate degree in Psychology at Kean University and hold a Master of Social Work degree from Rutgers University. For over 10 years I worked with women, men, and teens facing unplanned pregnancies and related concerns. There I worked with many who experienced trauma due to history of abuse, domestic violence, and pregnancy loss. I also have extensive experience working with children ages 4-18 in a school based setting and providing short and long-term in-home counseling services to children with behavioral and relational issues as well as providing support to their parents and families while navigate the challenges that arise. I have provided field supervision for Bachelors and Masters level interns completing their field placements from Rutgers University, Nyack College, Ramapo College, and Montclair State University. I am trained in school presence to help children and adolescents struggling to attend school due to severe anxiety and depression. I am also a Certified Care Plus NJ Inc.
