These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Erica Mau. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Teen Counseling might be different.
Erica is helping us tremendously
She’s amazing and patient - thank you
Erica is great. I only wish we could meet in person. But the convenience of a phone call is good too.
I have been very impressed with Erica. She listens, we feel heard and validated. She gives us new perspectives to think about and I am very impressed with her willingness to chat via text outside of counseling hours.
Erica has been an amazing help with me on my journey and helping me hold myself accountable to where I need to be more aware in my own healing journey. And I feel that she is an amazing listener and she gives great advice on what things to pay attention to in the future as I process my own feelings.
We were kinda nervous before our first session but Erica made us feel really comfortable.
Still great as always
I have had the same therapist here for years now. I genuinely don’t know where I would be without her.
Erica is a fantastic therapist. She is a wonderful listener and a kind-hearted person with lots of patience. She has helped me discover a lot about self confidence. Love working with her!
I have been working with Erica for several months and she has been incredibly supportive to my needs I appreciate her support so much. She is very approachable to talk to and it’s great to have somebody I can discuss everything with judgment free. Erica has a genuine and caring approach and I am so very thankful for her!
Erica is always there for me and is helping me to be a better me and a better human and to chase happiness!
Erica has been great! I’ve been working on loss, self love, fertility struggles and even some relationship issues. I’ve had a good experience with her and would recommend her.
Erica is great!
Erica is great! She is understanding, is eager to help in any way she can, and you can tell loves what she does! I would recommend her to anyone
Erica’s great! She helped me in everyday life. We just celebrated our 4 anniversary.
She is great and very helpful
Erica is a great lostener and known what questions to ask to get to the root cause of any issues.
Erica has been very helpful in working through some of my thought distortions. She also communicates through multiple different ways and always responds in a timely manner
We’ve really liked Erica! She’s down to earth and it feels like we’re talking to a friend instead of someone dissecting us! She’s the reason my husband will actually keep going to therapy!
Eric Mau and I are just getting to know each other as therapist/client so I would like to write a more objective review in a month or two.
So far, she keeps me engaged with therapy and also gives me enough time to respond back to her which is what works best for my personal needs.
Erica is amazing. She checks in with me regularly and gives me great insight and perspective when we talk. I end up thinking about our conversations daily. I just adore her.
Erica your great. Thank you for been here for me . An giving me good advice. An motivating me to keep doing the right thing. . I feel better everyday . God bless .
Erica provides me the accountability I need to practice self-love. I have a very hectic schedule between working in the emergency department, taking post-bacc class, and being in the military. She provides a non-judgemental and perceptive insight during our sessions and she helps facilitate ways to nurture my better self. I recommend Erica for anyone who is seeking professional help with depression, co-dependency, and overall unhealthy childhood upbringing. She is kind, checks in with you between sessions, and informs you if there is a change is schedule.
Erica is absolutely incredible! In the 18 years that I’ve been in and out of therapy, she is the FIRST person I have ever truly enjoyed working with and feel a connection to. I always leave our sessions feeling better; whether it’s more relaxed, more positive, confident or motivated. Erica is so supportive. She has had more impact on my progress in the 9 months we’ve been working together than all the others combined. I am so grateful for her.
Very professional and approachable individual. Loved her good work.
Very caring approach, Erica is down to earth and helping me to move forward in a healthy way.
Erica is so amazing. I know She’s my therapist but she genuinely seems to care about me. She’s always there to listen and help me work through things. She’s given me some amazing coping mechanisms and helped me get correctly diagnosed. I’m feeling so much better than when I started.
Erica really takes the time to listen and understand what I'm saying and provides great feedback and a supportive environment where I can open up and be vulnerable.
I love Erica - she understands me and is kind when needed and is pushy if needed. She gets me and I feel so empowered because of my work and her help.
Very helpful and patient.
She’s amazing. I feel so understood by her and she is able to get to the root of what I’m saying. Zero judgement, all the empathy and support. I’ve had lots of therapists and therapy over the past fifteen years and she is by far my favorite person to talk to and get support from.
Erica has already helped me learn so much about myself, my triggers, and had already helped me create a toolkit to improve on my habits. I am really enjoying working with her and I feel very safe with her.
Erica has been so patient and understanding of our issues! She is very good about making my husband and I feel validated in our feelings but also is very helpful about when we need to be constructive to make positive changes. She will be the reason my marriage works after I was ready to give up!
Erica is awesome! She is very personable and offers a variety of ways to overcome my personal issues and problems. She knows how to talk to me in a way that makes sense (which can be hard for me sometimes) and is great at explaining things. I highly recommend her!
Erica has helped me learn so much. I am so grateful for her help.
I met Erica merely a few weeks ago, and I am positively surprised at how much she understands me and my family dynamic. She uses trauma-based techniques, blended with humor, mindfulness, logic, and practicality. She always wants what’s best for you as a human. I could write all day about Erica, but I’ll leave it at this: It was one of the best decisions I’ve made since moving to Oregon — I don’t feel so alone anymore. She is a phenomenal active intuitive listener and I look forward to our weekly live video chats.
Erica is the best. She has helped me so much because her approach challenges me to improve while also being warm and accepting. I just really enjoy talking to her and getting useful ideas that I hadn't considered before. Thank you, Erica!
Two and a half years with Erica speaks for itself!
Erica has really listened to me. I think that's a skill lost to us people today. She's really listened to me and responded with kindness. And practical solutions. I'm really lucky to have found her. I think her most important skill is the kindness and humanity she's shown me, my thoughts, and my feelings these past few months. I can safely say I've never experienced that before. It's really given me the space to consider changes in myself that I've not thought of before.
Erica is passionate about helping people figure out where they want and need to be. She shows compassion but will be honest with you. She is supportive and I feel like she is always there! She responds so quickly and will even check in when I haven't reached out in awhile. Our phone conversations never feel cut short and I always feel relief and have direction when we are done. Erica is awesome. ♥️
Erica is extremely helpful and unbiased which is just what you’d want! She’s great and I would recommend her to anyone who feels they need some relationship (or life) guidance.
I've really enjoyed working with Erica. I was a tad bit skeptical about trying online therapy, but it didn't feel much different from meeting in person and was so much more convenient. Erica was easy to talk to, raised good questions and was flexible with what we discussed. I would definitely recommend her.
Erica is amazing. She really provides great insight to your thoughts in a manner that’s easy on the ears especially when you are more critical on yourself then anyone else. First time I’ve actually felt good about talking to a therapist.
Erica has been a great help over the last month since we started. She is easy to talk to, pragmatic, responsive and funny! I would definitely reccommend Erica to anyone looking for couples counseling.
Erica is a true gem! I’ve had so many counselors throughout the years- in person and online and I really feel like I’ve finally found someone who GETS me. Being able to message her throughout my day without judgment is the most amazing thing. She has great insight and I really feel like she’s a cheerleader in my corner helping me to get better. I’m so grateful for this platform, first and foremost. And so grateful to connect with Erica through it! I wish I had found her sooner! I feel so hopeful for the future of my mental health.
Erica is kind, considerate and especially, compassionate. Her professional, yet personable temperament helps me be able to open up on a level deeper than I've ever gone with anyone before without risk of feeling judged or put down. Her compassion-based approach is helping me solve years of degrading conflict inside of me and helping heal areas I was certain would never change. I'm looking forward to seeing my marriage thrive as I continue to get healthier with her help.
Erica is great. She leads me to my own choices and understands that I need things straight in communication. She's a friend I can come to and feel good not sharing with others. Thanks for being a great sounding board!
Erica has been great. As a queer couple, my partner and I weren't sure how teencounseling.com would work, but we feel lucky to have a chance to work with Erica, who is very helpful and supportive. We appreciate the flexibility of scheduling, as our work weeks are often hectic.
Erica has been very helpful over the few weeks I have been talking to her. She hears me out and advises when need be. She checks on me often when I don't respond on time, she guides me and makes me feel calm when am angry or sad. I feel better after talking to her. I am very thankful for her time and understanding.
Erica is down-to-earth, flexible, and very helpful. She always listens well and does not sugar coat things (which I like). She always asks good questions and remembers what you say. Thank you!
Erica has helped me get through a really rough patch and has taught me ways to cope when they come. She is extremely supportive and her years of experience shows.
I've been speaking with Erica for over a year now. She's been a supportive friend, kind listener, problem solver, and space holder during some of the darkest and hardest moments of my life. I'm so grateful for the ability to send her a message when I am feeling super lost and to be able to set up flexible weekly calls that fit into my schedule. She's been such an anchor in my life, I'm so grateful.
Erica is a remarkable listener. She is able to sort through the lengthy correspondences I throw at her and pinpoint exactly where to start and how to help. She’s working with me on many different aspects of my life for which I am grateful. Healing is a slow process, but the frequency with which you can speak to your counselor with teencounseling.com helps to write down exactly what you’re feeling in the moment instead of having to wait until you see someone in person on a certain day. That process has helped me immensely so far. I’m so glad I signed up!
Erica not only is quick, responsive, and knowledgeable, she's also more professional than many expensive live therapy experiences I've had. She's easy to access and has been a life saver for me, more than once.
I have been with Erica for over a year, prob like 2 now! She has offered so much sound counsel and wisdom, things I can put into practice to make changes and grow and heal. And I am.:) And its helping my children as well..
Fantastic, this has been truly life changing, she’s my guardian angel on my phone
I grew up believing therapy was useless and a waste of time. I did not need people, especially friends, a girlfriend and a wife. Offspring was not an option. The rationale was that I could not trust anyone but myself. Regardless, I could live a happy life in solitude. Naturally, I adopted antisocial attitudes. For much of my teens and twenties, I took massive pride in being an “antisocial” individual. I did not see an antisocial personality as being a passing adolescent phase, but rather as a way to protect myself from what I believed was a dog-eat-dog world.
I have been talking to Erica for a year and a half, and over time, I have discovered that the world is a beautiful place and that most people are goodhearted. Moreover, I have learned that I am a people person. I used to think of myself as The Grinch, extremely bitter about the happiness I saw in others’ friendships and romance. I was bitter because I thought those joys were out of reach, but I later found that I was simply depriving myself of them. For the longest time, I thought I did not need those things. I still do not believe that I need them, but I will say that the people who are already in my life have brought me much happiness.
Also, I finally rid myself of the assumption that misery is a just way of life (it’s not). I thought that I enjoyed pain, but I told myself I enjoyed it because it was a “necessity” and therefore I needed to like it. I do not see any use in pain, anymore, and I have chosen to steer clear of people who wish to hurt me like the plague.
Moreover, my perspective on therapy has completely changed. I now see the benefits, the most important being my self-growth. I will admit that, in first seeking therapy, I wanted to be immediately fixed. I wanted to be a productive member of society. I was already was a productive member of society and just had massively low self-esteem. Self-confidence is still not one of my strengths, but I love myself more than I have ever in my entire life.
That sums up my testimony for my treatment under Erica, who has helped make my life easier because she opened my eyes. I did not need to be fixed because I was never really broken to begin with, but I would never had that epiphany without her.
Erica has been with me about a year now, she has listened at my worse times... talked me through them. She has helped me through marriage problems. It’s been one of the toughest years in my life and because of Erica I have made it through!
Wow, Erica has been so amazing for myself and for my relationships. She truly listens to you and makes you figure it out together, which is what I want. She makes me think critically about my emotions and actions and she always makes sure I know she is not judging, just asking and recommending. Sometimes I still wonder why I can't find someone like this in person, but the video, phone, and text chats are so well rounded that I don't even notice she isn't local. She has also been so patient and kind and understanding with my husband and myself. She truly makes us both feel like we are heard and understood while finding mutually beneficial ways to resolve and talk about our issues. Both of us were really worried about a counselor taking "sides" because of our past experiences, but she really didn't and even when we brought up sensitive subjects she was not phased and did not show surprise or any judgement. I can't recommend her enough and have truly appreciated her skills. We've "paused" our counseling for a few months at a time and whenever we need some extra guidance or help we come back to her and it's so great knowing she already knows our key issues and our history.
Erica is a thoughtful, caring and just plain cool individual! I feel like she truly understands and cares about me and what I'm struggling with. With her guidance and support, I know I'm getting stronger every day.
Erica has been so supportive, caring and encouraging in times when I felt lost, alone and confused with how I feel inside. Erica is such a lovely person to speak with. She has opened up a new world of things to try and explore that help with thoughts and feelings. I feel so lucky that we were matched and defiantly can say with confidence that I'm so happy I tried one more time. I am very grateful with all she is doing to hep me work through tough times and I make sure she knows it.
Pushes me and holds me accountable to my goals and desires.
She has been great helping me overcome personal challenges and helping me understand things I'm going through. She makes it feel like I'm confiding in a friend more then a counselor.
I think Erica is amazing, she always makes me feel valued and listened to. She's very warm and doesn't judge.
Erica is really easy to talk.
Erica is a breath of fresh air. She's managed to form a bond with me that has me considering letting down my guard. She knows how to make me laugh, which is incredibly therapeutic for me at the moment. I've talked to several other therapists, some for a quite a while, but I never felt as comfortable or open with them as I do in my short time working with Erica. I've already been able to tell her things I'd thought would die with me. Erica treats me like I'm important to her and like she honestly cares about me; that's something I've rarely experienced in my life. It can be unnerving to think about the work I've got ahead of me, but with Erica by my side, I feel confident that I'll be able to heal and come out of this process a little better off than when I began it.
Erica is such a good listener, kind, thorough in her responses, and flexible.
Just so easy to talk to. So comforting when I can just let everything out and she knows how to help you work through it.
Erica has helped me in the past and I am so grateful to be able to look to her to get me through some rough patches again. She is so approachable, it is very easy to open up to her. There is no judgment and she genuinely cares.
Ms. Mau is incredibly patient and non-judgmental. She actively listens to me and checks in with me. I would definitely recommend her to others. I've had problems talking face to face with other therapists due to my own struggles with anxiety. This format and especially Ms. Mau's manner really helps to alleviate that obstacle.
Erica is the best. She is very open to everything and has that aura that is very kind and ready to listen without judgement and it just makes you want to start pouring everything out. She asks you questions that get you thinking and she has done wonders with me and all my problems just by being there. I couldn't ask for anyone better. This platform is blessed to have her, and I am too!
I've been pretty absent because of personal problems, but I've felt every message I've sent, despite how few they may be, have been well analyzed and properly answered to. I wouldn't even know how to understand myself, but Dr. Mau's contact with me has been really helpful so far.
Erica is great. So understanding, polite and non-judgemental. You can talk to her about anything. I will surely reach out again. :-)
I love her!
Erica is the best.
Erica is there for me whenever I need her. At first I was nervous about being honest with a stranger, but I soon realized that in sessions with Erica, it's a judgement-free zone. She has made me feel understood and offered ways to cope with my anxieties. She gives me multiple options for communicating with her, and she always responds to me quickly and thoughtfully. Signing up for teen counseling has been the best thing I've done this year!
Very friendly and easy to talk to. Replies quickly and cares about my issues.
Erica is a wonderful person with whom I could confide in. I appreciate her sense of humor and unconditional love during our sessions. I’m learning to be a stronger person and to accept myself and others.
Erica has really helped me and she quickly understood my issues, and helped me get to work on them. I've had a lot of counsellors in the past so i know a good counsellor - Erica ticks all the boxes.
Erica has been great! I felt comfortable sharing things with her and could count on prompt replies. Her messages were soothing and action-based - suggestions that I could actually do to help the situation. Would definitely recommend!
I feel the thing I love about Erica being my counselor is how involved she is in the conversation and my circumstances. She knows how to lead the conversation to the right places without introducing any awkwardness or discomfort. Great insight and just effective solutions.
I’ve only been talking with Erica for a few short weeks now, but it’s one of the better decisions I made. I get responses in a timely manner, when I overstress about everything Erica has a way of making me rethink things in a calmer manner. I couldn’t be happier with my decision to sign up with teencounseling.com and couldn’t be happier with the counsellor I was given!
I have been talking with Erica for about 3 weeks now and I have to say that she has been such a great counselor to talk to. She is very personable and can relate to me better than any other counselor I have had. She asking a lot of questions that make me think but gives me some great perspectives that have helped my day to day in just a short time. I look forward to continuing my sessions with her and I recommend her for sure.
Erica is a good listener and gives good advice and help. She always checks on me from time to time. I even felt that she is even more available than I am. :) which makes me feel glad that whenever I need her she’s available.
Amazing and caring! Very helpful!
Erica is extremely helpful, respectful, and gives wonderful one-on-one support. She is available in a variety of ways - however is accessible, convenient, and comfortable for her clients, and has great suggestions and exercises. I love working with her! I highly recommend her for anyone seeking support.
Erica is warm, caring, patient and compassionate but also just the right amount of challenging to make sure you're still working and getting the most out of therapy. She has been an incredible suppport through a very stressful and difficult time in my life. I can't recommend her enough.
Erica has been so wonderful! She is very receptive and responsive! She is very encouraging and complimentary of my accomplishments and aspirations. I would recommend her to anyone who needs an understanding but constructive counsel!
Erica is really an Excellent Counselor! She listens to whatever you want to discuss and responds to it very politely. She is super responsive, polite and on top of all very understanding. Highly recommended. :)
Erica Mau is a wonderfully professional therapist who's experience in the field shows well. She has a problem solving approach, and is very good at obtaining and giving answers. I would highly recommend her to anyone, but especially to first time therapy goers who are unsure if therapy will be helpful. She will show through her actions and words just how effective it can be.
I love how real Erica is. She lets me have a sense of humor about some really hard situations, and is able to laugh with me. She listens to what I'm saying (and what I'm not saying), rather than making assumptions about what my experience or feelings would be. I really appreciate her!
Thank you Erica!
Erica is full of encouragement and good advice. Right away, she made me feel comfortable sharing everything that's going on in my life. She tells me exactly what I need to hear to get back on track and face my challenges head on. Thank you so much for your wonderful support!
Wow!! Erica has helped me so much. Really can't thank her enough. She is a true professional. Thank you, Erica! I am excited for more counsel in the future!
It's only been a two weeks but I do feel like talking with Erica has really helped me with my trust issues. I feel better talking to my friends and family since Erica made me realize it's alright to share and people won't judge you.
With the short time my husband and I have been talking with Erica Mau, we have grown and are still learning.
Erica is great! Always responds very quickly and understands when I don't have time to respond.
Started using the service a couple of months ago. Really impressed with my counsellor and the overall experience using the app.
The way you can access your session from any place at any time has been of great use to me.
My counsellor Erica has been wonderful, very open minded, understanding and helpful.
I would highly recommend that anyone who needs to talk about something try teen counseling.
If you're matched with Erica know you're in good hands =)
Erica has been helpful as talking through issues my family is dealing with without having to make time for traditional counseling appointments.
Erica has been very kind and patient. We didn't end up working together as I had to cancel my membership, but she seems like a very loving, caring and helpful counselor. If I sign back up, I am hoping to start working with her again.
Erica is an amazing support system. She's excellent at making you feel like the most important person in the world to her in that moment. Better than my therapist I can see in person, I'd rather talk to Erica!
Erica is so kind and really listens and considers what you are saying. She is a great person.
Erica's a great counselor.
Erica has helped me immensely. Her genuine empathy and skilled technique delved to the heart of the problem to assist you in gaining clarity and propel you forward to better choices. I recommend her highly :)
Erica is great . I've only been talking to her for a few weeks but has already helped me recognize issues I never recognized previously within myself.
Erica was amazing and very helpful with my problem.. Always there to help! Will use this again for sure..
Erica has been amazing, she is so patient and kind but also tells me when she thinks I am wrong. I appreciate her honesty and how much she cares.
Great advices and good examples, stories, tests, and a lot of patience.
She is the best!
Absolutely INCREDIBLE. Lifts my spirit, self esteem, confidence, super kind, helpful and friendly. With a short amount of time, she's already encouraged and helped me in many ways. Thank You Erica!
Erica is a wonderful person. She was very understanding, however, she would not let me wallow in self pity. She would continually bring me around to what positive steps that I could take to be at peace and to have success in my life. I really feel like my communication with Erica helped me to make a huge decision in my life that helped me succeed and renewed my strength to press on. Thank you Erica.
