Erika Bugaj, MA, MSW, LICSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Washington
There are many reasons to be worried, in these increasingly stressful times in our community and country. People who have a history of depression or anxiety, may feel more vulnerable and are at greater risk, due to the stress of everything that is happening in our world right now. Therapy sessions provide you with an opportunity to share what's on your mind, in a supportive and nonjudgmental environment. Please make an appointment to come in and tell me your story. I look forward to helping you, to increase your peace of mind!
I enjoy working with parents. We can all benefit from a listening ear, a chance to vent, and a sounding board in our parenting lives. Perhaps you can give yourself the gift of some time to talk about the most important person in your child's life... you!
Please browse the profiles of my associate therapists if you are interested in working with another therapist in my practice. Check out the profiles of Lisa McLish, Nathan Luecking, Edie Mead, and Naomit Abend. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
