Erica is available to provide telehealth sessions to anyone in Pennsylvania.
Hi! My name is Erica Roland, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor.
I have been working in the mental health field since 2011 and have been practicing as an outpatient therapist since 2015. I received my Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology from Millersville University. During my training, I have worked in outpatient treatment settings, crisis counseling, and inpatient hospitalization, which has exposed me to various mental health issues and diagnoses.
Working with various clients and mental health issues, I have found so much passion in working with individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, mood disturbances, significant life changes, difficulty coping with change, relationship stressors, and trauma. This has led me to explore a deeper passion of mine and work with individuals struggling with transitioning to parenthood, regardless of where they may be on that journey.
Mental health can affect our overall wellness during pregnancy, postpartum, infertility, or after experiencing trauma/loss during this particular phase of life. Being a therapist allows me to connect with people during some of the most challenging moments of their lives… and, hopefully, help recreate the sense of wholeness that has been missing.
My therapy style is eclectic, with foundations in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. I enjoy a collaborative approach to therapy, where we will both take an active role in the process. I do, however, recognize that there is stigma and uncertainty sometimes attached to seeking out mental health treatment, and my main focus is to meet my clients where they are at in the present moment. My first goal for treatment is always to provide a safe and comfortable environment that promotes a positive therapeutic relationship.
If this sounds like the type of therapy you’re looking for and you’d like to work together, call and schedule an appointment with me soon!
Whether you are suffering from panic attacks, obsessive – compulsive disorder, or generalized anxiety we have therapists who use evidenced-based treatments, such as cognitive-bahavioral therapy, to help you.
Many individuals feel like they are at war with their bodies. Whether it’s feeling shame, guilt, or giving ourselves critical comments about our bodies, we can be our own worst enemy. Our therapists can help you feel at peace with your body and learn to be kind to yourself.
Depression and anxiety are extremely common, but often under-diagnosed by medical providers during pregnancy and postpartum. Our providers have specialized training to help women with anxiety and depression in this specific period in their lives.
Depression, one of the most common mental health disorders, is very treatable. Our therapists are specially trained to help individuals with depression get back to feeling like themselves again.
Move Forward Counseling is an inclusive practice where we want the LGBTQIA+ community to feel welcome and supported. Whether you are unsure how to embrace your identity, are having relationship issues, or need extra support from a non-judgmental person, we have therapists who can help.
Life transitions encompass many things, including starting or ending a romantic relationship, changes with work or school or making any big life change, such as a move. Often we underestimate how these changes will affect us emotionally until we find ourselves struggling with the ups and downs of the life transition.
While we don’t provide couples counseling at Move Forward, many individuals seek counseling to discuss how they can have healthier relationships. Our therapists can help you learn new ways of communicating, setting boundaries, and other ways to have more positive relationships with others.
Trauma symptoms and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can be debilitating for many who experience it. Recovery from trauma is possible and we have therapists who can help.
Moving into adulthood brings its own set of challenges. You may feel pressure to have a “career” or find your life partner. You may be unsure of making these big life decisions and may feel lost because you no longer have school or other adults in your life telling you what you should choose.
Reach out today to get started. Our supportive staff will help guide you through the scheduling process, discuss special requests and consult your insurance needs.
