“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 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! "
