I am a licensed clinical social worker in FL. VA. UT. and ME and a licensed marriage and family therapist in FL. I have worked in various environments in the mental health field for over 18 years. My experience is working with children, adolescents, young adults, couples, and families with concerns including communication difficulties, parenting , relationship conflict, grief and loss, stress and anxiety, and compassion fatigue. I also have specialized experience in autism assessment.
My approach to therapy is client-centered and solution-focused. I believe the most progress is made when you meet a client where they are at and focus on the issues that are a priority for them. It is important to me to establish a safe, open, space where clients are treated with respect and feel comfortable. I utilize cognitive-behavioral, motivational interviewing, and strengths-based strategies to help guide our sessions. This way we can work together to identify and address the challenges that you are facing so that you can move forward. You have already taken the first step by reaching out and exploring Better Help so congratulations, you are already headed in the right direction! I look forward to getting to know you and helping you continue to move ahead with positive change.

Alicia is the best! She understands what ive gone through. She makes great suggestions on what to do to help, but ultimately she just gets that some times its about venting and listening. I actually stopped therapy for a little bit but what i loved was when i signed back up it just picked up right where i left off.

Alicia really takes the time to listen to what I have to say (or write) and offers me concrete ways to make small changes with tremendous effect. Her questions are really thoughtful and help guide us to the root of a problem, she respects me exactly as I am, and she doesn’t make unnecessary assumptions about me or my life. I would highly recommend Alicia and I am so grateful to be paired with her.

Alicia has been my all time favorite therapist to work with. She creates a warm and welcoming environment. I have never felt so comfortable opening up to allow growth and guidance in my life. She provides wonderful guidance and encouragement through difficult challenges in life.
