I became a therapist because I have big emotions. I teach what I have most needed to learn myself. So I am here to show you that you do not have to punish yourself, or prove your worth, or even figure everything out. My name is Charletta Erb (pronounced "Sharleeta"), and I'm a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Ventura, California (License #98832). With over ten years as a psychotherapist, I help people with busy brains tap into ease and calm. Whether you come with anxiety, depression, ADHD, trauma, my clients feel deeply and learn to be more compassionate and loving toward themselves and in turn, their loved ones. Our emotions need to move or else they come out sideways. I studied somatic psychotherapy so we can listen to your body’s wisdom. We talk, play, move, laugh and cry. I love taking my clients for walks by the ocean and on the hills. NOTE: Presently accepting new clients ONLY IF using private pay, Beacon, Medi-Cal or Cigna insurances. I'm a busy gal so the best way to start is to send me a message with your payment needs and your primary reason for seeking therapy now. That helps me know whether we might be a good match with my present client load.
