Hi! I’m Emily P.G. Erickson. I’m a Minnesota-based freelance writer specializing in mental health and parenting. I’ve written for major digital publications, including Everyday Health, Health, Motherly, The New York Times, Parents, Reviewed, Scary Mommy, Verywell Family, Verywell Mind, and WIRED. Formerly a mental health researcher, I also hold a master’s degree in psychology and am a mom of three.
I write because I believe that sharing what we learn can help make it a little easier to be a person on this planet. I cover mental health and parenting because both matter a lot to me. If they matter to you, too, I’d love it if you’d subscribe to my newsletter.
When you subscribe, you’ll get one email monthly, arriving on the last Thursday. You can expect to see my latest writing and a list of books I think you’ll want to read.
