Welcome! My name is Dr. Dana Parry-Erickson and I have been a licensed Clinical Psychologist (PSY 24857) since 2012. I have spent the last 17 years being thoroughly educated and trained to provide psychological services. I have gained an abundance of clinical experience while working in school district settings, community non-profits, children’s hospital, a United Nations Non-Government Organization (NGO), and forensic settings such as juvenile hall. I am so thrilled to now have the opportunity to utilize all these amazing experiences I have gained over the years, and be able to provide this expertise to you through individual psychotherapy, diagnostic evaluation, assessment, and consultation.
My expertise includes providing psychological services to children and young adults who have Neurodevelopmental disorders such as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Social Pragmatic Communication Disorder, Intellectual Disability, and Borderline Intellectual Functioning. I also help people who have Schizophrenia, Bipolar Disorder, and Postraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Additional clinical expertise includes providing evaluation and treatment for people experiencing mental health difficulties associated with their medical conditions and genetic disorders. Helping individuals who have experienced domestic violence; sexual, physical, and/or emotional abuse; anxiety; and depression. As well as people who are experiencing work related stress, having relational difficulties, and questioning their purpose in life.
What makes me a unique provider is that I am able to provide my services to people of all walks of life with varying needs and barriers to mental health care. I create a therapeutic atmosphere that combines creativity, positive regard, empathy, and warmth with scientifically backed interventions that can assist you (or your child) with meeting your goals. I have successfully provided culturally sensitive psychological services to refugees from around the world, individuals who utilize Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) devices, athletes, victims of crime, fashion designers, writers, students, and more. From children through to older adults, my number one goal is to provide psychological services in a safe, non-judgmental environment that will assist you in becoming the best version of yourself.
