Screen shot 2016-05-17 at 12.08.39 PM6/7/21: Please note I am not currently accepting new psychotherapy clients or adding to my waitlist at this time. Resources for finding a therapist are Psychology Today, Interface Referral Service, Zen Care, Therapy Den, and Thriving Campus. For a list of eating disorder specialized providers (i.e. therapists, dietitians, prescribers), please click here. If you continue to have difficulty locating a therapist who has availability and accepts your insurance, please contact your health insurance carrier for support.

Hello! I am a licensed mental health counselor (LMHC) in the state of Massachusetts, and I specialize in the treatment of eating disorders & disordered eating, body image issues, anxiety, perinatal mental health, and sexual trauma. I received my master’s degree in counseling psychology from Boston College, and completed my clinical internship working with survivors of sexual assault.

I have previously worked as the Lead Adolescent Clinician at an eating disorder treatment center in various levels of care (residential, partial hospitalization, and intensive outpatient).  Currently, I provide outpatient therapy for older adolescents and adults via telehealth services (i.e. videochat) during the pandemic.  In non-COVID-19 times, I am based in Medway, MA. You can learn more about my treatment approach here.

I am passionate about promoting healthy body image, understanding the impact of social media on self-esteem, and encouraging parent education in the treatment of eating disorders and other mental health issues.

I can be contacted at erika@evargaslmhc.com with questions, comments, or to inquire about scheduling an appointment.
