Teaching since:



I'm Dr. Erika.I started working with people after overcoming personal health and mental issues that were affecting my life and health. When I healed myself from PTSD, depression, anxiety attacks, vertigo, back problems, colitis and with almost needing a colostomy, I realized just how powerful the mind/body connection is in all of us and how we can heal. Because of the success I was having, it captured the media's attention and I was asked to be a guest on many tv and radio shows.From there I hosted my own tv show entitled, "Thinking with Spirit" and hosted my own radio show entitled "The Return to Yourself".This in turn created me to be on the front cover of "Applaud" magazine as well as co-authoring bestsellers with many wonderful people; three of which were Deepak Chopra, Dr. Wayne Dyer and Mark Victor Hansen (author of the "Chicken Soup of the Soul" series). We all deserve the best life ever. Knowing this information will absolutely create a happier and healthier life for you!

After trying various alternative practices including acupuncture, reflexology and chiropractic manipulation, I discovered C.O.R.E.™ therapy and Reiki. Nothing has excited me or worked this effectively! As you know ten years ago being diagnosed with Kidney disease and needing a new one plus a new heart created my looking to other forms of healing. I have become passionate about learning Reiki and plan on becoming a Reiki Teacher myself. This way I can pass along this wonderful gift that I have received through (Erika) so that others can discover the same happiness and healing I have. (I have been taken off the transplant list!!!!)"

Dear Erika, you ask me how Reiki and C.O.R.E. (TM) Counseling has helped me and I don't know how to express in words what you have done for me. You helped me so much. You helped me to see that I wasn't alone as I thought I had been. You helped me to realize that so many people cared about me when I thought that there was no one. You helped me to see the world in a new light. You helped me to see that we are all in charge of our own lives and that changing ourselves is only as hard as we make it. I use the knowledge I learned from you and the Reiki you taught me daily. It helps me and others constantly. Thank you."

Dear Erika, I hope this letter reaches you in the best of health and spirit. I just wanted to take a minute to let you know how much you and the wonderful world of Reiki has changed my life. When I first met you in Jan. of 98, the pressure of being a single mother of two, opening an Esthetic School and clinging onto emotional issues from my childhood had me spinning out of control. It seemed like the faster I went the more ground I would seem to lose. At that time I believed that there was no hope of ever finding peace, just lots of stress, until I met you. I saw tranquility in your eyes and it made me want to trust you. I thank God every day that I did. When you started working with me, I began shedding layers of emotional luggage that I had been collecting diligently through my 39 years of life. Each time we dealt with one of the issues I had stuffed, the magnificient energy of Reiki would erase them one at a time. After working with you for about six months and becoming a Reiki Practitioner II, almost all of that heavy baggage is gone. I now credit each new day with enthusiasm and incorporate love and spirit in everyone around me. I believe I am at my best as a mother, teacher, Esthetician and friend. Every aspect of my life is rich in spirit and peaceful. Thank you so very much for guiding me into the warm tranquility I now posses. You will always be in my heart.

Dear Erika: It has been a year and a half since I availed myself to your services. I must say it has had a profound effect in my life. If you recall, my motivation was to find peace in my life. There was much turmoil due to early retirement, health problems, marital strife, establishing a new business along with instant review of my past failures. Earlier you had helped both my niece and sister so while vacationing, they suggested I visit you. My heart has stabilized and I have now found more inner peace, thanks to you. I really appreciate your help. Please feel free to use me as a reference with that book you want to write or any other need." Regards

This is a letter to thank you for all the help you have given me and my brother. The first time I met with you was very profound! You helped me so much. My headaches left me. I no longer feel darkness. I wanted you to know how well my brother is doing! His cardiologist was amazed with his health when he returned home. Three years ago he was told he was terminal. He had only one artery left open in his heart. He was a candidate for a heart transplant. When he saw you he had high blood pressure. He couldn't walk. He had no will to live. After his initial meeting with you Erika, there was a profound change in his mental, physical, spiritual, and emotional health. He now believes in God. He walks four miles a day. He is meditating. He is a new person. He wants to live. His cardiologist cannot explain what happened to his physical health!! He has new arteries in his heart! He is a new person. I hope he writes you. Thank you again Erika and I hope to see you soon. With gratitude and love",

After starting C.O.R.E.™ Therapy, my new mantra has been: "Confront, Validate and Heal." Confront your fears, validate your feelings, heal yourself. As a child I did not have the courage to talk about my feelings or fears. I never got to have my feelings validated and feel loved unconditionally. That child had remained inside of me without a voice for over 20 years until I tried C.O.R.E.™ Therapy. C.O.R.E.™ Therapy has provided the safe environment I longed for as a child. That 6 year old little girl was finally able to speak through me and allow me to heal, emotionally and physically". Thank you!

My thanks go to two people; first to my friend who gave me Erika's name and phone number. Then, to Erika herself, for searching and learning about C.O.R.E.™ Education and passing it on to all who are seeking answers to the way we respond to various situation in our lives. Conventional therapy did get me through a rough time; however, it was a band-aid and it didn't take long for some areas to resurface and cause unnecessary pain and hurt. Within a month of C.O.R.E.™ Education with Erika, I began to understand the "why" of my learned behavior. Having the tools Erika gave me, my days are more exciting. I know my growth is just beginning. Oddly enough, I have had two people tell me they have noticed a change in me. And I didn't think it showed! Surprise!"

Through C.O.R.E.™ Education with Erika, I've come to understand my true self. I am no longer trapped in patterns of behavior that trip me up and create conflicts in my every day life. C.O.R.E.™ Education is a real eye opener into our inner selves. I am evolving into a more aware person". - M.A. Windham, N. H. "I have seen several traditional therapists for esteem issues over the past ten years. They were not able to do for me what C.O.R.E.™ Therapy has done in five weeks; truly heal my inner child's wounds". -M. F.

"Dear Erika, I just wanted to say thanks for all your help, advice, spiritual enlightenment and emotional healing. Erika, you're so amazing! You've taught me and shown me so much about myself. You've helped me grow so much as a person spiritually and emotionally. Your sincere compassion and non-judgmental person has allowed me to open up and heal what I once thought would always be buried. Erika, I also want you to know that through your work (help), I've been able to reach out to many others and help them as well. If you could only see how enormous the light you have started is, you would be teary eyed amazed! Since we first began therapy my life has changed 180 degrees! Things just seem to get better, brighter on a daily basis. You may use me as a reference any time. Thank you once again for helping me find my inner happiness. I'll be in touch soon". -Matt C,

I met Erika several years ago at the National Guild of Hypnotists Convention. When my first class of the day was cancelled, I decided to see what her workshop had to offer. As I sat listening to Erika, I knew it was no "accident" that I was there. I was fascinated by what she was teaching, wanted to know more, and cancelled a later class so that I could attend another of hers. That was the beginning of our journey together. Erika is a brilliant teacher and the tools and techniques she has taught me has changed my life. By applying those concepts, I have moved beyond my self doubts to become a confident life coach about to publish a book. Erika has become my mentor, my colleague, and I am proud to say my friend. A cancelled class allowed me to meet and experience Dr. Erika Duffy and I will always be grateful for that opportunity. Attending her workshop can transform your life as it did mine."....Jean Riker, N.Y., author

Erika: Thank you does not even sound adequate for what you have done for me. Having gone through many therapists who only ask questions and offer no solutions on why I was so unhappy, why I was stuck in victim, why I had cancer, why I allowed others to abuse me...the list could go on and on...The self sabotaging was crippling me...and I realize I was doing it to myself due to old thoughts and beliefs since childhood that I thought was real. When you change your mind and your focus, you literally change your physical body and you can move forward, not stuck in a perpetual downward spiral, as I was. When I met you I wanted to end my life as there was no hope, at least, from the therapy I had received, there was no answer, and therefore no peace, only anxiety and self loathing. When you speak to me or to others, your voice is that of an angel. Thank you for devoting your life to educating others and therefore allowing them to realize they have the power to heal themselves in all areas of their life. What a blessing you are! I love you!
