Shauna Erickson, M.S., LAMFT

Shauna Erickson

Hi, I’m Shauna Erickson. I am a licensed marriage and family therapist from Fargo, ND. Like Emily, I grew up in north Fargo and am thankful for the opportunity to live and work in a community I love.

I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of North Dakota (UND) and earned my Master’s in Child Development and Family Science at North Dakota State University (NDSU). I am trained in providing mental health therapy services for people of all ages, couples, and families, and focus my clinical work on affirmative therapy. My golden retriever “Dr. Spencer Reid” and I are also a trained and registered therapy team.

My style of therapy relies on the needs of the client(s) I am working with. When working with individuals, I focus our efforts on ways to separate the individual from the problems that have become intertwined in his or her day to day life. When I work with couples, I utilize a framework that helps us track patterns and discomfort attached to those patterns in order to help the couple realign and sync back up together. Lastly, when working with families or children, I tend to utilize solution-focused and play therapy techniques.

My main area of expertise is acute child and adolescent therapy. Being able to play, provide early intervention, and help families overcome hardship is one of my greatest passions. I have experience working with children ages 4-18 with behavioral difficulties, trauma, body image and disordered eating, struggle adjusting to life events, attentional issues, and mood disorders.

With that, I also enjoy working with couples as we can really work to see the results that you want for you and your partner. My goal is to work with you and your partner to build relational patterns that are satisfying, fulfilling, and rejuvenating… but most importantly help you both to make these changes stick.
