About Erica

Dr. Erica Hospes, LMFT, DHSMy name is Erica Hospes. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT 50520) practicing in Los Gatos, CA. I hold a Doctorate in Human Sexuality and Masters in Transpersonal Psychology. In addition to this rich traditional education, I have earned a Masters level certificate in Creative Expression and have completed 100 hours of training at Damanhur University which allow me to practice Prana Therapy.

My passion is for people. I specialize in holistic therapeutic services to accelerate personal development so people may experience a full and  joy filled life.

My goal is to educate and empower people towards creating the life of their dreams. With a multi-dimensional clinical approach, my clients have an opportunity to:

  1. Begin the process of self-mastery
  2. Discover and foster a grand version of self
  3. Explore and release limiting beliefs and behaviors
  4. Increase consciousness to create specific experiences and achieve goals

With extensive clinical training in counseling psychology, creative expression and human sexuality, I am uniquely qualified to support a full range of psychological, social and spiritual challenges.

My practice includes:

Energetic Balancing & Mindfulness – In this fast paced lifestyle presence, grounding, and the basic building block of life – The Breath is imperative to sustain a wealth of health, defend against illness, and heal.

Total Health & Wellness – Provide clients with a blend of unique skills and tools to enhance connectedness and joy in daily life. This could include energetic therapies, aroma therapy, creative expression and more!

Adolescent Development & Parental Support –As a guide through various phase of life transitions I create a safe and non-judgemental haven for caregivers & young people to communicate, establish healthy boundaries, and achieve freedom

Creative Expression – Creating an opportunity for artistic play so that creativity and personal power may re-emerge

Professional Coaching & Development – Helping professionals explore their chosen occupation to enrich the quality of work the experience. I can help you achieve greater professional heights, maximum joy,  & rewards from your career

Prior to expanding into the field of Psychology, I worked for a decade in the technology industry. During this time, I developed invalueable insights and skills to manage the rigor of the most competitive business environment and life in the San Francisco Bay Area. This first-hand experience provides me with a unique advantage when working with clients who struggle with the inherent stressors and demands of a most competitive culture.

A favorite luminary, Marianne Williamson, eloquently articulates a primary belief I hold about our truest nature and what we may accomplish together:

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
