About Ericka Martin

Ericka Martin | MA, LMHC, LPC


Counseling for Adults (18+)

Ericka Martin | MA, LMHC, LPCEricka strives to put clients at ease with her warm, casual, down-to-earth style. Clients with panic attacks, worries, and social anxiety will especially feel at peace. For many years, Ericka has provided therapy to adults and teens in individual and group settings.

Ericka combines supportive therapy with research-proven Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and trauma-informed approaches like EMDR and Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapy. Sometimes negative thoughts and feelings can seem overwhelming, and at times even become unbearable. Often, they are the root cause of the issues that prompt someone to seek outside help. She helps people understand what triggers these thoughts and feelings and helps clients learn new skills for coping and healing.

Ericka specializes in treating adult eating disorders through a Health at Every Size (HAES) and fat liberation lens. She believes in empowering individuals to cultivate a positive relationship with food and their bodies, free from societal norms and weight stigma. She also helps people that struggle with anxiety disorders, such as OCD, social anxiety, and generalized anxiety disorder.  Ericka is an ERP-trained OCD therapist. 

She loves to work with college students, professionals, and at-home parents. She would love to work with you and help you make the changes you desire to live a full and joyful life.

She is native to the Northwest and in her free time enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. In addition to her therapy work, Ericka also supervises graduate student counselors and professional counselors working toward professional licensure.

“As a Family Nurse Practitioner in the Vancouver area, I am always looking for good resources to pass along to my own patients. One of my patients found Ericka and could not say enough about how much she was helping them and how much they LOVED her! I have since sent other patients to her and they all LOVE her! I have met Ericka personally and can understand why they love her so much. She is positive, friendly, warm and very open to helping her clients. I will continue to recommend her to my patients, friends and family!”
