A good place to find a new way
“Probably the biggest insight… is that happiness is not just a place, but also a process. Happiness is an ongoing process of fresh challenges, and… it takes the right attitudes and activities to continue to be happy.”
A Bit About Therapy
If you are considering counseling and therapeutic services, you may be experiencing worry, fear, sadness, or anger to a level that has you concerned. These feelings often come from being dissatisfied with your relationships with important people in your life, or your relationship with yourself and your own mental health. Both your mental health and your relationships need maintenance, similar to how your body needs food, water and exercise to be fully healthy.
Attending counseling is like joining a gym, or hiring a dietician. I will offer you tools and opportunities to make changes, but you will have to commit to making changes over time that will be different from what you have been currently doing. I want to understand where you are right now and help you to find more satisfaction with yourself and others.

Erika Roldan Hulse, MA, LMFT
Marriage and Family Therapist #105458
I have been a counselor since 2009. After working as a counselor for a crisis hotline and mentoring parents working to reunify with their children, I obtained a master's degree in counseling psychology from Santa Clara University in 2014. I also have an undergraduate degree from Stanford University.
I have several areas of interest that I have studied and focus my practice in those areas. I use David Burns' Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (author of the book Feeling Good), as I see the most effective progression to health with those methods. I also have led groups on mindfulness, grief, and parenting. I worked in a hospital setting working with women with serious postpartum mood issues, and connect deeply to parenting stress. Additionally, much of my current work focuses on families dealing with the fallout of trauma and crime. I am trained to help you with your mental health - you might want to call me if you feel that your mental health is getting in the way of your relationships with others or with yourself.
Your mental health and well-being are important to me. I love helping my clients develop the tools they need to cope with all of life’s challenges, and I get great satisfaction from seeing them heal and thrive. Contact me today to see how I can help you and let’s discuss the wide range of options at your disposal.
