My name is Andrew Erdman, and I am a licensed social worker and psychotherapist. I have experience treating individuals, families, children, and teenagers. I provide help and guidance for people facing an assortment of life’s challenges: relationships, work, family conflict, harmful behaviors, negative thinking and low self-esteem, depression and anxiety. I focus on the various ways in which we sometimes undermine our own happiness, fulfillment, and life potential, and I work with my clients to find a way forward. I am trained in psychodynamic theory and technique, Functional Family Therapy (FFT), and the Need-Adapted Treatment Model (NATM), but my approach is neither rigid nor "manualized." Different things work well for different people. I also make use of meditation and mindfulness if appropriate and helpful for a client. It is my belief that most people already have within them the ability and wisdom to heal and grow. My work involves helping clients access that inherent power and strength.
Most of all, I seek to create a safe, trusting environment for my patients, where they not only can get relief from current-day challenges but also address deeper, root causes that may have led to recurring hardships. In my experience, working in a cooperative, emotionally-attuned, and insightful manner with my patients yields the best results. If you wish to make an appointment to see me for an individual, couples, or family therapy session or initial consultation, please use my Contact page. I will make every effort to respond to you with twenty-four hours. If you want to know more about my professional background, please see my Experience page.
