Eric Elder, M.S., Registered Associate PCC


Eric Elder, MS, APCC # 53522

Hope all is well with you! My name is Eric Elder and I am an Associate Professional Clinical Counselor who recently graduated with my Master of Science in Professional Counseling. In my 3-1/2 years at Grand Canyon University, I’ve completed a great deal of coursework on Professional/Clinical Mental Health/Addictions Counseling and best practices, including learning and understanding the importance of The American Counseling Association (ACA) Code of Ethics as it pertains to professionalism in the field of counseling. I understand and know that first and foremost, in the field of professional counseling, ethics is a necessity to always ensure that the welfare of the client comes first, reduction/prevention of harm is forefront, and all relationships between client/counselor remain professional and appropriate.

My passion and interest are to work in schools or with children/adolescents to help counsel, guide, support, and provide inspiration so they believe they can succeed in life. I spent 12 years working for the YMCA of Silicon Valley as an after-school site director and summer camp director/coordinator during the summers. I have also completed a year as a school counselor intern working with mainly IEP students promoting positive social-emotional support and behavioral support. This experience has guided me to understand my career path in life and how I can contribute further to my work with youth. I am very comfortable with many theoretical constructs within counseling (CBT, REBT, Motivational Interviewing, SFT, and DBT). As I move forward within the profession my aspirations are to work with families as well as couples in marriage counseling. Supervised by Danielle Zent, LMFT #53522.
