Depending on your racial identity and cultural stories, Erjing believes that each of you has your own stories and struggles while navigating your way being in the United States. Being rooted in multicultural counseling and intersectionalities, Erjing is passionate about supporting the overall wellness of this community.
“I was in a dark place that I no longer am. I honestly think that Erjing was a big part of me not giving up on myself. Without her, I probably wouldn’t be where I am today. I am eternally thankful.”
"In therapy, she pushes me to jump into the uncertainty, but she also doesn’t overdo it. She has helped me tremendously on encountering fears that I would never think I am capable of encountering.
She gives me space and patience in therapy and she’s able to understand me well, wherever it is that I am coming from.
She understands there are no negative emotions, but there are emotions that are more difficult, which is a huge factor in recovery too, to feel whatever it is that you are feeling.
All in all, I wouldn’t be where I am now in recovery without her significant help! "
