Maurica Erne

I am Maurica Erne LSWAIC, MHCP and have been working with mental health for the last eight years. I became a behavioral health specialist in the Army in 2012. I have been in the Idaho Army National Guard for 17 years. Through that time, I was deployed to Iraq twice. My life in the Army gave me firsthand experience with trauma. I have devoted my life to metal health treatment ever since. I have experience with in-patient, outpatient and Intensive outpatient with a wide variety of diagnosis. I specialize in CBT, DBT, and trauma informed care. I have been running a DBT group for the last year and have really enjoyed working with people struggling with personality disorders. I look forward to being a part of your path to recovery.

“When people experience trauma, anxiety, depression or relationship conflicts, it is not uncommon for them to feel as though they have lost all control. My passion in counseling is restoring hope and empowerment with the people I work alongside with. I can help you explore thoughts and try new coping skills in a non-judgmental space. I work with both individuals and couples to identify strengths and areas that can use further development. I individualize care for each person I meet and I place you as the expert on yourself. So please, reach out today to begin this journey towards healing of the whole self. ” – Macie
