Erica Van Leuven, LCPC, Owner - has been working in this field for 17 years. Erica got into this line of work because of her sheer love for spending time with children and realizing how much she could impact their lives by spending time truly focused on them. As education enhanced this belief and substantiated this approach, it was a natural fit. Erica works to constantly research and educate herself in a variety of ways, all to best serve the clients with whom she works.
The experience Erica has, is varied and provides for a far broader knowledge base than you will find in most. Experience includes public schools, mental health counselling clinics, psychiatric hospital units, and supervising the largest children's counselling clinic in the Treasure Valley. This broad knowledge base assists greatly in honing in on what a client is facing and how best to meet the needs of the client.
As a native Idahoan, Erica spends her time with her family and often outdoors. When younger, she enjoyed fly-fishing with her father and going camping often. Now with three children, Erica is very focused on her life with her husband and children and engaging in each of their activities. The old adage "It goes by too fast" (meaning kid's childhoods) is so clear and evident. So right now, Erica has every intention of continuing this course until the children are out of the house. She will then return to activities of her own choosing. :)
