About Dr. Erickson

Minnesota Licensed Psychologist

Dr Sydney Erickson Minnesota Therapist

My goal as a therapist is to create an environment where you can identify and overcome the barriers to you living your most gratifying life. I believe we feel our best when we can live authentically and embody our values. This can be difficult when we get so many messages about who we should and shouldn’t be and what kind of life we should be living. I want therapy to be a space where we can tune out the unhelpful noise and listen in to what your instincts are telling you about what you need. 

My approach to therapy is first and foremost to provide you with compassionate and nonjudgmental support. Next, I want to be able to give you the strategies to use to help best address your specific concerns based on the latest research in psychology. All of this is couched in the framework that each of us have multiple intersecting identities that impact how we navigate the world and how the world responds to us. I believe you already have everything you need to empower yourself and live your life more fully, we just need to clear the path for you to do it.

“Being human is not about being any one particular way;
it is about being as life creates you—with your own
particular strengths and weaknesses, gifts and challenges, quirks and oddities.”
