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.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Alesia Dunlap. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
I would be lost in life right now without her!
I am so thankful to have been matched with Alesia. Working with someone who shares my values has really helped me dive into my thought processes and break toxic patterns.
I can say from experience that Alesia genuine cares for her patients and makes it a point to listen and offer helpful advice. She has helped me to better myself in the areas of communication and coping methods. She is kind and makes me feel comfortable.
Alesia is great. I think that in person is preferrable but our community is under resourced.
Alesia is such a great match for me. She listens with compassion, she offers insight and suggestions to help me navigate through my growth. She's easy to talk to and I'm very grateful to have been matched up with her.
I think Alesia is a very good listener and always responds with something on point with my situation
