Erika Shershun, LMFT is a somatic psychotherapist specializing in working with sexual trauma survivors. Passionate about getting the needed tools that eluded her for so long into the hands of all survivors, she wrote the Healing Sexual Trauma Workbook. Drawing on the powerful mind-body techniques of somatic therapy, it’s a step-by-step guide to overcoming the physical and psychological effects of sexual trauma, increasing positive body awareness and restoring a sense of hope and vitality.
Erika sees individual clients and facilitates an ongoing weekly therapy group for female identified survivors at her private practice in San Francisco (currently meeting remotely for CA residents), and is available as a coach for those residing outside of CA or the US. Her work is body based and trauma informed, incorporating neurobiology, EMDR, energy work and other modalities to help ease and resolve symptoms.
In addition to her passion for psychology, Erika has a background in fine art, design, and film, and enjoys working with artists, performers, and creatives. Erika welcomes and values diversity, including all races, sexualities, genders, body sizes, and abilities.
