While my first sessions with Eric were met with suspicion, fear, and timidity, it only took a mere hour for me to place my trust in his benevolent care, and a mere few weeks for us to begin productively undoing the self-defeating mechanisms that I have felt so powerless against. Eric has been instrumental in making visible the very embedded and very real models of destructiveness that plague my life (and the particular lives of numerous LGBT individuals living in the city). Rendered legible, and finally understood as culturally contingent and therefore arbitrary, he has decluttered the space in my mind, making room for the potentiality of self meaning-making based on a life that is authentic, liberated, and fully present, and fully able to express and receive the gifts of love - be it of the self, or of others. Working with Eric is like having a comforting, assured hand walk you through the darkest corners of one's topographies of unattended trauma. Simultaneously reassuring, kind, compassionate, and gentle, Eric is also necessarily firm, assiduous, provocative, and perspicuous, matched with an easy, relaxed demeanor and ferocious intelligence."
