“Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”- Albus Dumbledore
Hello! I’m Erika Hadinata, a licensed marriage, and family therapist. I really look forward to working with you! I love working with adults (including young adults) and also with couples.
In my senior year of college, I lead a support group and knew I wanted to be a full-time counselor. I spent three years working under the lead Pastor of Pastoral Care in the counseling Center at Saddleback church providing both individual and couples counseling to adults seeking faith-based counseling services.
How I work
I see every person as a unique individual with a story that they can shape and mold to become whatever they desire. Sometimes I am primarily a ‘supporter’ – other times a ‘challenger’ to help people work through stuck spots (but always with compassion and at the speed of the client).
Watching people transform their lives and relationship into what they have always dreamed for themselves motivates me each day!
Clients have remarked that I’m warm, compassionate, and patient. When we are done with our work together, I am delighted to see my clients feeling more capable and confident to face many of life’s challenges while enjoying the life and relationships that they have created for themselves.
More about me
I love watching the Great British Bake Off and attempting to recreate fun delicious cakes I see on the show. I also enjoy hiking and kayaking.
