Erika Krull, MS, LMHP is a licensed mental health counselor, freelance writer, mom of three young girls, wife of one cool guy, and former prisoner of depression. She experienced three and a half years of postpartum depression and PMDD (premenstrual dysphoric disorder) before getting treatment.
After a year in recovery, she decided it was time to get back to work. From the time she realized she had depression, she promised herself that her experience wouldn’t be in vain. She has spoken at her local hospital about postpartum depression, developed a specialty in women’s mood disorders, been a guest speaker at local postpartum depression trainings, and been a volunteer state coordinator for Postpartum Support International.
Erika has specialized training and experience with intense in-home family therapy. For two years, she traveled to rural areas providing counseling for families with severely behavior disordered kids. She also has almost ten years experience being a mom to round out her qualifications as a family specialist.
Since 2006, Erika has used her writing talents to connect with people. She writes for the drug rehab industry, develops professional training for child care workers, and creates articles and blog posts here on Psych Central.
