Emily P.G. Erickson

Hi, I’m Emily. I’m a Minnesota-based freelance writer specializing in mental health and parenting.

You can find my bylines in major digital publications, including Everyday Health, Health, The New York Times, Parents, Romper, Verywell Mind, WIRED, and more.

Before I became a writer, I earned a master’s degree in psychology and researched PTSD for the Department of Veterans Affairs.

I believe in sharing what we learn. I love bringing personal insights, scientific findings, and expert advice to the public through writing.
