I have never felt more strength and support from a therapist and I have tried so many. The accountability during the week is a life changer. This whole experience has already provided drastic relief and it’s the second week in. I plan on sticking with her for as long as I can/need to.

Alicia does a great job with making me feel that she values me and that I’m not “just another client.” She frequently checks in on how I’m doing in between visits and continue to add words of encouragement. She has great techniques that she uses during our meetings to help deal with my issues! She’s is definitely a “tell it as it is” kinda person which some times I really need! I’ve only been working with her for a short time but so far I really feel that I am cared about and that she is invested in helping me better my mental health .
