Comments from Dr. Erica Nordquist on her approach to helping others:
Marriage and Family Therapists (MFTs) are mental health professionals trained in psychotherapy and family systems, and licensed to treat mental and emotional disorders within the context of marriage, couples and family systems. When working with clients, I utilize a client-centered approach informed by attachment theory, family systems theory, and narrative therapy. I enjoy working with couples, individuals, adolescents and families in a collaborative manner to reach their goals. I often work with people who are struggling with couple/family conflict, experiencing remarriage and divorce adjustments, life stage changes, family of origin challenges, and depression and anxiety.
Background and Education:
I received an undergraduate degree in Family Studies from Western Michigan University, a master’s degree in Family Sciences with an emphasis in Couple and Family Therapy from the University of Kentucky, and a doctorate degree in Human Development and Family Studies with an emphasis in Couple and Family Therapy from Michigan State University. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) with experience providing counseling in the public and private sector. Additionally, I am a Clinical Fellow and Approved Clinical Supervisor with the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT). I have received additional training in Emotion Focused Therapy and The Gottman Method.
