Erika Shershun, LMFT, is an author, a licensed therapist in private practice in California, a somatic coach, and a survivor. It was her own long difficult journey to move beyond trauma symptoms permeating most every aspect of her life that resulted in her piecing together the knowledge and tools needed to heal. Erika’s passion to prevent others from spending extra years and resources searching for relief from disruptive and painful trauma symptoms lead her to specialize in working with survivors and those suffering from PTSD. Her approach is compassionate yet direct, somatic based, and trauma informed, utilizing EMDR and other integrative modalities. Erika see's therapy client's individually, facilitates an ongoing therapy group for female identified survivors residing in CA, and offers coaching for clients residing outside of CA. She welcomes and values diversity, including all races, sexualities, genders, body sizes, and abilities. The Healing Sexual Trauma Workbook grew out of a desire to make her work more easily accessible, and is now available in Spanish.
