Anne Erickson, LPC-A
Anne provides therapy for adolescents, adults, families and couples. She has over 10 years experience working with depression, anxiety, trauma, bipolar, self-injury, and addictions. She also has a background in academic and career counseling.
For Anne, “Working as a therapist is one of the great joys of my life. My theoretical stance is psychodynamic in nature, meaning that I believe past experiences are inextricably linked to the present. Over our lifespan, we all develop ways of coping that make sense for our survival. But, sometimes, these ways of coping no longer serve us well. Therapy offers a chance to explore how we got to where we are, and how best to move forward.”
A native of North Carolina, Anne studied psychology at Duke University and went on to complete her graduate training in therapy at Wake Forest University in 2005 where she was recognized with the Most Outstanding Graduate Student award. She has taught courses in the Wake Forest counseling department since 2013.
Anne is married with two daughters. She enjoys reading, writing, and spending time with her family, which includes three cats, a guinea pig, and a bird.
