Erica Sanborn, Ph.D.
If you’re reading this, you’ve taken the first step towards harnessing your curiosity and embracing the possibility of something new. Perhaps you’re interested in therapy and wondering what it might be like. I’m passionate about helping my patients embrace their vulnerability and curiosity so that they can forge meaning and build identity by sharing their story. My style is warm and compassionate as well as direct and straightforwardly honest. I believe this helps me provide a safe place where you can be your authentic and genuine self and helps us develop a trusting relationship where we can work to help you increase your capacity for intimate relationships and improve your relationship to yourself.
I earned my doctorate at the California School of Professional Psychology and completed a pre-doctoral internship and post-doctoral fellowship in psychoanalytic psychotherapy at Wright Institute Los Angeles. I have training and experience working with adults and college-aged individuals on a variety of presenting concerns such as relationship issues, depression and anxiety, self-esteem and body-image concerns, sexual and gender discovery, emotional dysregulation, individuation, and identity development.
I am interested in the integration of mental and physical wellness and conceptualize holistically to help patients understand how their strengths and challenges fit into the larger picture of their sense of wellness, emotional health, and interpersonal relationships. I use a collaborative relational approach to engage patient’s curiosity about how early experiences and unconscious motivations or fears may contribute to their lives today. I look forward to hearing from you.
