Erich Roush, PSYD - Psychologist
Veteran Track Program at Aurora Psychiatric Hospital

"I have a person-centered approach that meets people where they are at. I individualize care to help meet people's goals by using a mixture of education and evidence-based therapeutic approaches as needed to foster change. My background in positive psychology and resilience focuses on people's strengths to not only survive, but thrive."

I earned my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology and Master's of Science in Clinical Psychology from the Wisconsin School of Professional Psychology. I also received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Marquette University. I completed a psychology internship at Clement J. Zablocki VA Medical Center (Milwaukee, Wisconsin), and also completed Master Resiliency Training from the U.S. Army.

I have been in the U.S. Army since 2007: five years active duty and six years and counting in the Reserves. My focus is treating trauma, moral injury, and working with a military population which includes individual, couple, and group therapy. I utilize a number of evidence based modalities (CPT, PE, EMDR, ACT, CBT) in addition to an interpersonal style to treat trauma related disorders.

I am also competent in treating anxiety, depression, substance use disorders, serious mental illness, and relationship problems. I have extensively studied barriers for veterans accessing mental healthcare and have a strong background in motivational interviewing.

I have a beautiful wife and three amazing children. We also have a dog, two cats, two birds, and many fish. Chickens are on the horizon. Outside of work, I enjoy playing, coaching, and watching sports... in that order. I play everything from volleyball to bowling to basketball to ping pong. If it has a ball, I will probably enjoy it. I also love spending time with my kids, traveling (when possible), the theatre, and trying new foods.
