The Burnout Professor's Approach

A revolutionary and impactful experience designed to help you level up your stress management game and start to thrive.

From the way you motivate yourself, think about situations, connect with yourself and others, and take healthy risks, the nervous system is the root of it all.


Erica Cuni, LMFT, CIMHP's practical, integrative roadmap creates long-lasting transformation in your life by teaching you the cornerstones of managing, stress, overwhelm and burnout​​.

Burnout is a physiological, psychological, and systemic issue.

burnout (noun):

Burnout is a state of chronic stress caused by prolonged activation of the “fight or flight” response and little to no stimulation of the “social engagement” system. This imbalance leads to emotional, physical, and mental exhaustion, reduced resilience, and social disconnection.

This is one of the reasons why traditional talk therapy isn’t always the answer. Erica's approach isn’t like the old idea of therapy where we diagnose, analyze the past, talk about stressors endlessly, and prescribe medicine.


Rather, it’s focused on finding a new way of being from this point forward so that you can start to successfully manage life’s curveballs and create the life you want. It’s trauma-informed, nervous system-based, and integrative. You’ll learn how to befriend stress so you can start to think clearly and make sound decisions.

The Roadmap to Ending the Burnout Cycle

Stop going through the motions and become intentional

Erica's clients have this to say

Working with Erica has changed my life beyond what I can put into words. She is empowering, caring, and respectful, while at the same time has made me be uncomfortably reflective in order to become my best self.

Although Erica is a traditionally trained therapist, she does not provide 'talk therapy.'  She provides so much more with her cutting edge approach. Working with her has changed my life in ways that I continue to see long after we ended our time together.

I now know the meaning of self-love and gratitude, that no matter what happens to me, it is for my greatest good. I wish I could put into words how blessed I feel to have worked with Erica. She has given me a new perspective on myself and in my life.

My gratitude for Erica cannot be put into words. Human language is simply not adequate enough to express how I feel about the work that she has put into helping me become a better person. I feel like I am sitting with a life-long friend when I meet with Erica. She personifies empathy and caring for her clients.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • What sets you apart from other Mental Health Professionals?
    Besides understanding where you are because I've been there, too, I have 15+ years of professional experience in the Mental Health Field. I share knowledge from my time as a Professor who taught Human Development, Intergenerational Family Processes, Dysfunctional Family Processes, and Couples Therapy. Plus, my insights from when I was a Clinical Director and Psychotherapist. I've worked with the Department of Veterans Affairs, Department of Corrections, Juvenile Justice System, the Public School System, and two non-profit Children Psychiatric Outpatient Clinics regulated by the Department of Children and Families. In addition, I bring training and certifications from the holistic side of wellness: Integrative Mental Health Professional, Reiki Master, Essential Oils Wellness Advocate, and Meditation Facilitator. I wasn't always in the mental health field. I have had 10 careers. With having a business undergrad degree, I have several years of experience in sales, recruiting, and middle-management positions. Not to mention, I've worked in the bar/restaurant industry for almost 18 years, from server, cocktail waitress, bartender, trainer, shift supervisor, and DJ.
  • What does it mean to be 'trauma-informed'?
    It takes someone's current situation into context, understanding that their behaviors have served a purpose at one point. Those behaviors that once helped you navigate life are now hindering your ability to be successful. As a result, it's time to find a new way to thrive.
  • What is an 'integrative mental health' approach and how is it different from 'traditional talk therapy?'
    An integrative approach is focused on the mind, body, and spirit connection. It gets to the "root" of the issue, beyond a diagnosis. A diagnosis only tells us the symptoms; it doesn't tell us WHY the symptoms are there. It looks at the entire person, not just the mind when understanding how to help someone optimize their mental wellness. This means it considers the way a person's gut microbiome, nervous system, lifestyle, trauma history, community, relationships, and mindset are currently affecting them. You are not just talking about the stressors, analyzing the past, and having medicine prescribe as your "only" answer. You're making fundamental changes so that you walk away with the knowledge of how to live a life filled with optimal mental wellness. You will feel empowered to know you have control over your life and that you're not destined to have a diagnosis forever. **This approach works great with trauma-informed therapies, functional/naturopathic medicine, and other holistic modalities

  • Is there a difference between the terms 'holistic' and 'integrative?'
    For the purpose here, the terms are interchangeable.​ Both words mean that they take the whole individual (mind, body, spirit) into account and not just focus on one part (i.e., the mind).
