About Me

Welcome! I am glad you are here!

I am a licensed mental health counselor in New York with over 5 years of experience working as a chemical dependency therapist, a case manager for veterans with severe mental illness, and a therapist in private practice. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including trauma, addiction, life transitions, depression, anxiety, coping with severe mental illness, family dynamics, and couples counseling. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, motivational interviewing and person-centered counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

Before we begin working together, please note that I have a short additional intake form that will need to be completed and returned and a photo of your ID/driver's license will need to be sent in order to confirm residency. I appreciate your understanding in ensuring I remain compliant with my license to practice so that I can continue helping others on this platform!

I look forward to working with you!

Alicia is very kind and helpful. I have been lucky enough to be paired with her, and over the course of the last few months, she has been extremely insightful and helpful with my needs, and asks meaningful questions towards resolution.

Alicia is incredible!! She is extremely prompt in her responses and flexible with scheduling. Additionally, she helped me get through my struggles while giving me the tools necessary to handle them on my own, moving forward. She is kind, compassionate, and clearly cares about her clients. She's a wonderful woman and therapist!

I have only been talking with Alicia for about a week but it has been very helpful. She listens to what I have to say and she has good advice and helpful ideas that I can implement. I also really love the convenience of having an ongoing conversation with her. It's very helpful not to need to squeeze an appointment in my already busy schedule!

Alicia DeWolf has been helpful and reliable in my experience. I appreciate her prompt responses and also her efforts to further understand what issues I am dealing with. Within a short about of time, Alicia has already pointed out some interesting insights I haven't been aware of previously.

I haven’t been working with Alicia for too long now, but, since our first time talking - I was amazed at how understanding she was- I immediately felt a trust toward her and am so happy to have come across Alicia. She is prompt in her responses and doesn’t make you feel ‘crazy’ but more calm at how she is able to help you understand your thoughts more clearly. She has definitely helped me widen my views in such a short period of time.
