Erika has a long history of patient care and enjoys helping patients move towards wellness and feeling better, and likes to explore the emotional reasons the body experiences pain. She works with her patients’ goals in mind to bring individualized care with specialized treatments. She modifies treatment plans as conditions change and improve for patients, working towards balancing the underlying pattern.
She works to anticipate the challenges that may lie ahead for each person while maintaining a healing space, and respecting each client’s path to wellness, and allowing them to be heard.

She strives to provide a calming environment in which to relax and heal, and encourages patients to be active in their care, and also recognizes and facilitates the need for integrative health plans that include modalities such as chiropractic, functional medicine, massage therapy, and nutrition counseling.
Erika very much enjoys her move to Colorado and likes to spend time outside with her dog Earl. She also spends her free time in the sun reading, gardening, and practicing yoga.
