Erika Ongena, LMSW
Erika Ongena I love working with children and taking a whole child approach. I was a social worker at the elementary school level for 10 years prior to private practice, which allows me to bring a unique skill set to my work with children. I moved to private practice to have the ability to work on a deeper level with children and their families.
I specialize in helping children with behaviors, child life transitions, and school stressors. During sessions, I would introduce new techniques and skills based on the identified need through lessons, games, interactive play and activities. Working as a team unit and collaborating between all necessary parties is a priority for me as a therapist.
I genuinely enjoy working with children and making them feel comfortable and positive about themselves. Building a solid rapport and trusting relationship with my clients and families is what I strive for as a therapist. My biggest goal is for them to enjoy coming to counseling and leave our time together in a better place than when they came.
