About Me

I am a Licensed Master Social Worker, and have been working with families and individuals for over 7 years. I have successfully guided many people through trauma, anxiety, depression, and various others struggles. I believe that everyone is their own expert, and sometimes they simply need guidance. I am a strength-based therapist and often utilize CBT, Motivational Interviewing, and Solution Focused therapy, but we will work together to decide the best model of treatment for your specific needs.

Empathy and a non-judgmental environment are necessary for change, and I strive to provide a safe place to work through whatever issues you are facing. During our time together we will work to address immediate concerns as well as plan for long-term needs. I am passionate about helping my clients achieve a more satisfying life by empowering them with tools, support, and a new way of thinking. You, as my client, are my commitment. It takes courage and strength to reach out for help and take the first step toward change; I am here to empower you if you are ready to take that step.

Written by M.O. on Nov 19, 2018 after counseling with Alicia for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, self esteem, anger management, and bipolar disorder

Love talking with Alicia. She gives importance to the smallest detail I say and helps me organize my thoughts. She checks on me if I don't talk. She's very genuine, pushes me to find the solutions myself and to write down the steps that will get me to that solution. The past three months with Alicia were very helpful! Highly recommended.

I have struck out with a lot of psychiatrists and therapists in real life. People who had good intentions, but not the expertise to deal with the bizarre, unique problems I deal with. Alicia, on the other hand, I'm still not sure I believe she's real. I don't think I've ever felt this understood by a counselor. I've never had one be so able to keep up with my scattered thoughts and shifting moods. When I tell her something, she responds in a way that lets me know she knows what I mean, and even better, asks good questions. She's simply excellent.

I have been working with Mrs. Fiske since 2017 I believe off and on. She is someone who cares about her patients and is willing to help them.

Dr. Fiske is a dedicated to work. I do not meet her in person but it feels like she is right here with me. One day I was having a breakdown and right at that moment I saw her email checking in on me. She dont know but she saved me. I love her work and have to say I am blessed and thankful to betterhelp.

Alicia is extremely helpful, professional, respectful and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend her for those seeking to improve their well-being and needing someone who understands, and is sensitive and caring. She's been very helpful and supportive as I work through problems and deal with life's stresses. Having her keen insight and positive perspective helps me to sort things out and keeps me on track on a healthy path. I feel that since working with her, my life has more balance.

Alicia is the bomb.

Written by A.L. on Oct 09, 2017 after counseling with Alicia for 2 months on issues concerning depression, sleeping, self esteem, career, and bipolar

Alicia is quite attentive and caring and open to my concerns. I am becoming more clear about my future and planning.

Written by M.A. on Aug 19, 2017 after counseling with Alicia for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, grief, sleeping, self esteem, anger, and career

Alicia has been amazing. From the very first message, she was able to really see through the multitude of issues and helped me focus on the one that was at the center. I can't express enough how much she's helped me in even a short time.

Written by S.H. on Aug 10, 2017 after counseling with Alicia for 4 weeks on issues concerning depression, relationship, family, trauma and abuse, grief, sleeping, and self esteem

Alicia is very patient with me and even though I had so many issues to deal with, she addresses every one of them patiently and professionally. She doesn't judge and she tries to let me view things from a different perspective. She also often checks in on me which makes me feel assured that I have a friend to confide in whenever I need help. I would say I am more confident and aware of my own issues that are hindering my way of life. :)

Written by A.O. on Aug 01, 2017 after counseling with Alicia for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship, family, intimacy-related, and career

Alicia has been excellent so far. Non judgmental, supportive and knowledgeable about techniques to try. I highly recommended her!

Written by S.H. on Aug 01, 2017 after counseling with Alicia for 1 month on issues concerning relationship, family, and trauma and abuse

With this being the first time in my 55 years of life that I ever reached out for counseling help, I was very nervous and cautious. But within the first few messages with Alicia, my fears vanished! Immediately I felt safe, unjudged, and could immediately pour out my heart and issues. Knowing that she was an expert, I knew I could trust her recommendations, of which I immediately put into practice and noticeably changed started to happen. I would highly recommend BetterHelp for a great experience and since they utilize the latest technology, it was super easy to connect anytime with Alicia. And Alicia is amazing, compassionate and also full of wisdom. I have already shared Betterhelp/Alicia with some of my friends!! Thank you BetterHelp. Thank you Alicia!

Alicia is understanding, compassionate, and she does not speak to me as if we are having an email conversation which makes this more informal.

Written by K.R. on Jun 28, 2017 after counseling with Alicia for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, parenting, self esteem, and career

Honestly, I hate counseling but this app and Alicia make it worth it. She is an amazing counsellor! She listens, gives good feedback and does not judge you at all. I really like Alicia and recommend her if your having relationship problems or struggling with a mental illness.

Written by G.R. on Jun 27, 2017 after counseling with Alicia for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, sleeping, career, and bipolar

Alicia is awesome and so helpful. She's smart, compassionate, and understanding. I'm sooo thankful for her. Thank you thank you Alicia. The most helpful thing is just to know she understands and she cares. She has really good advice but sometimes all I need to know is that I'm not alone and there's someone out there who cares. I appreciate all the advice and suggestions but sometimes I'm not ready to think about that kind of stuff. Sometimes I'm just too emotional to think about that stuff. Thank you Alicia. Thank you thank you thank you!

Alicia is an amazing counselor. She's patient, empathic, understanding, precise in detecting and getting to the root and causes and never gives up on you - she's really devoted to helping you get better and provides highly personalized attention. Alicia is also very resourceful and sends useful information and exercises adapted to your own needs and keeps you highly motivated in the hardest of times.

Alicia is very responsible and caring. Her methods are in line with my values, and her treatment is working for me and helping me to know myself better by opening my eyes to the good I never saw in myself before. I am building healthier relationships because of this. I wish I had found BetterHelp earlier.

Alicia is patient and extremely understanding. She always asked the right questions and focused on progression and challenging yourself in certain situations. Her cognitive approach helped me to become extremely aware of my emotions and to focus on in-the-moment changes, no matter how small they may seem.
