About me

I am a professional counselor licensed in Pennsylvania. My counseling experience has been in a general practice with relationship, mood, parenting, and communication struggles and also in a practice dedicated to working with adults dealing with sexual addiction, pornography addiction, and relationship issues with roots in sexual abuse. I have also counseled teenage boys in a residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility.

I did not start out with a career in counseling. I have a degree in industrial engineering from Georgia Tech. I married another engineer, worked a little while, raised children, and when they were in the process of leaving the home, I decided to pursue counseling. I acquired my MA in Marriage and Family Counseling from Lancaster Bible College and have been counseling for over 10 years.

I believe that our past is not as important as the thoughts and decisions we make today. My approach embraces solution-focused therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and client centered therapy. I believe that everyone's life history has taught them valuable lessons. It is my honor and privilege to help my clients develop these lessons into functional, effective, and beneficial thoughts and behaviors.

Really great

Alesia is the perfect for me! She’s so sweet, funny, thoughtful, asks me questions that really make me think and reflect about myself, gives me practical steps/goals, and feels like she really cares and listens. As a believer in Christ she also is helping heal my relationship with the Lord and putting him back in the center of my life, but she would be great for anyone. 10/10!
