Jamie is your go-to person for navigating through EricsHouse services. She’s happy to help you with any questions you may have regarding our services, and your sessions.
EricsHouse is special to Jamie because her son Ben (Forever 22) died by suicide in 2015 and she decided to devote herself to her fellow suicide loss survivors. Each person she meets at EricsHouse is uniquely on their way to the transformation that deep grief can bring.
Jamie Lee Silver’s Emotional Freedom Techniques, EFT Tapping, is on the EricsHouse menu of services. She teaches this profound self-help modality that helps people reduce stress and calm emotions. Many of the people she’s seen are skeptical, and come away smiling, surprised, and with a new, very useful tool!

Jamie is most proud of her beloved EFT clients’ results, and her son Dr. Aaron Michael Silver who was Chief Resident at the University of Arizona, Phoenix, and is now doing a fellowship in ultrasound at OHSU.
