About Erica Reshard
I believe that a strength based, client centered foundation combined with unconditional positive regard are the keys to change and healing. I am a licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor with over a decade of experience. I have a Masters degree in Social Work which I received from Southern Connecticut State University. My degree has concentrations in both addictions and mental health. I am licensed to practice Social Work in the state of Connecticut (LCSW) and the state of Massachusetts (LICSW). In MA I practice via telehealth on a HIPPA compliant video chat line. I am also a certified Acupuncture Detoxification Specialist.
As an LADC my primary focus is substance use disorders. As an LCSW I treat individuals with a variety of mental health disorders. In addition, I work with trauma survivors, predominantly those with urban post traumatic stress disorder. EMDR and acupuncture are adjunct treatments that address substance use and distress, often related to personal trauma.
I understand and appreciate the meaning and the magnitude of the Akan word Sankofa. I stand on this principle whether it was ones humanity, innocence, dignity or any other precious life affirming thing that was taken. Especially, if the loss has negatively impacted how one came to be who they are today.
