Speaker and Educator

Erica Ives, M.A., MFT, CEDS

Erica is available to speak at intimate gatherings, large conferences, school education events, college campuses, or in the workplace as an educator to other health care professionals.  Most speaking engagements are experiential in nature and encourage some form of interaction with the audience. Your voices, questions, and shared experiences are encouraged as they provide opportunities to not only learn, but to also help and teach others.

Erica’s extensive experience as a Marriage & Family Therapist, a Certified Eating Disorder Specialist, an educator, as well as a woman in recovery, a mother of teenage children, and a wife for the second time, definitely qualify her to speak as an expert in many areas. She presents and educates on a variety of topics based on your goals and the unique needs of your audience. Please feel free to contact Erica to discuss individualized speaking engagements.
