About Erika Willsey, MSW

I have been the school counselor at Lincoln Elementary School since 2017 and specialize in working with children. I am currently working on finishing my play therapy certification and my clinical license, both of which will be completed in 2021. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Finance from the University of Utah and a Master’s degree in Social Work from Boise State University. 


I am passionate about helping parents connect and understand their children through play therapy and relationship building as a way to foster positive and lasting family bonds. My approach involves aiding children in identifying and articulating their voice and role within the family structure. I am one of three Registered Play Therapist’s in the Magic Valley (SB-RPT).


In my spare time, my family and I enjoy traveling and outdoor activities such as whitewater rafting, camping, skiing, and hiking. We love living in Idaho and all it has to offer.
