My friend has seen Erica Samek and has praised about how much she is caring and empathetic. She says she listens and answers with such sound and unique advice, not just the generic stuff some people would expect. My friend loves seeing her and says she has guided her to a better life. Unsure if she is still seeing her, but I do know she has expressed wanting to go back asap.

Erica is an amazing therapist. She lets me think out loud and asks questions to help me arrive at the right decision for me. She will give you the encouragement you need when you’re doing the hard work of making new choices. She sometimes even goes over the appointment time if you’re in the middle of realizing something and she doesn’t have another appointment following. If something comes up in between sessions and you need her, she’s always a text away and answers promptly. She’s encouraging and supportive and truly wants to see you achieve your personal best and be happy.

Erica is the most kind, understanding and empathetic person I have ever worked with. Her expertise is consistent and shines through when you need it most, and her genuine willingness to truly listen and form a well rounded opinion helps you understand yourself and your situation with a completely refreshing and realistic perspective. Erica has helped me through many challenging situations both internally and externally, and I have a new found love and confidence within myself because of her. I highly recommend her services.

Very sincere and empathetic, she listened and took everything in before offering a few observations. She wasn’t overly aggressive and that is always a plus. I find her very welcoming and helpful.

She’s very concerned about making sure she gets paid even if money isn’t brought up as an issue. Although appointments are said to be 45 minutes long, mine lasted 15-25 minutes, while still paying for the full 45 minutes. I was told I could text her if I need help but got the response that we will talk next appointment (which was three weeks later). Just seems more money oriented than patient oriented. When I decided to cancel the next session, she said she understood and didn’t even ask why or if everything was okay.
