Get to know Eric

Eric Liles is a trauma and addiction informed therapist with over 20 years of pastoral counseling experience. He counsels families, couples, adults, young adults, adolescents, and children ages seven and older. Eric uses primarily cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), utilizing family systems when appropriate, has completed the level 1 training in Gottman methods of couples counseling, and is comfortable discussing the role that the unconscious, primary family, and other salient past relationships play in one’s mental health (psychodynamics of behavior and relationships). He is also trained in the basics of play therapy. As an ordained Episcopal priest, Eric is open to discussing questions around faith and spirituality from multiple perspectives.

As a pastor during the pandemic, Eric noticed an increased need among his church members for counseling. Though he studied psychology and practiced pastoral counseling for decades, he felt compelled to deepen his training and skills to help individuals and couples seeking mental health and healing. 

He earned a Bachelor of Arts in Biology from Texas A&M University, a Master in Divinity from Virginia Theological Seminary, a Doctor of Ministry from the School of Theology at the University of the South and his Master in Professional Counseling degree from Amberton University. 

Eric is a native of California with deep roots in the Lone Star State. He is a son, a brother, a husband, a father, and a dog owner. He is an enneagram type 8 with a 9 wing (aka the momma bear!) and a Myers Briggs INFJ.

When he’s not working, Eric plays a little guitar, enjoys traveling, cycling, hiking, camping, and reading. Eric is happily married to his wife and they have two adolescent children and two rescue dogs.
