About Me

I have been working in the mental health field since 1995. I obtained my LCSW, in Idaho, in 2004. My LICSW was obtained in 2009 and my LMHC was obtained in 2001. Both of these licensures are in Washington. I have experience working with a wide range of concerns including ADHD, anger management, OCD, Eating Disorder, Trauma, Anxiety and Depression. I also have experience working with victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.

I believe it is important for an individual seeking services to be able to participate in creating their treatment plan for therapy in order to assure that their goals are met. It is my opinion that a therapist should be open minded so that individuals are comfortable discussing difficult topics.

I look forward to the opportunity to serve you.

Thank you,

Alicia

Alicia is a great listener and offers a variety of ideas to approach issues. She allows me to resolve conflicts and challenges my thinking. I love how she gives me different tips and tricks for potential social situations and doesn’t ever make me feel judged or anxious. I highly recommend therapy with Alicia.

In just the short time I've been with Alicia, she's already helped me so much. She is so kind and understanding, we have conversations as if we've known each other for years - she not only makes me feel so heard and supported but has helped me navigate all of my emotions and thoughts with healthy, sustaining ways that ground me when my anxiety and overthinking steps in. I'm so looking forward to continuing the journey with Alicia as my counselor.

Alicia is awesome. I can’t tell you how refreshing it is to finally have found a therapist that actually listens and provides Helpful insightful advice rather than your typical “just try thinking this way” bs. I’d totally recommend her to anyone looking for a laid back yet professional, and wise therapist that actually cares.

She has been wonderful. I’ve made a lot of progress in a short period of time.

Written by S.H. on May 24, 2021 after therapy with Alicia for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and coping with life changes

Alicia was really wonderful to work with. I've been struggling quite a bit with depression, anxiety, and a lot of overwhelming life changes. She was always open to discussing whatever was important and on my mind for that week, available through messaging and encouraged me to contact her if I needed some support between sessions, and even checked in if she knew things were particularly difficult. I feel comfortable talking with her, and she has helped me look at things from a different perspective and ground my thoughts and emotions. I greatly appreciate how she went above and beyond to help me find support systems, and methods to work through things and ease my anxiety. I would definitely work with her again if needed, and highly recommend her!

Insightful, professional, and Down-to-earth, Alicia Powell is everything I look for when shopping for a therapist. She checks in on me often and reminds me to utilize our many methods of communication to keep in touch if any issues or questions arise between sessions. I love her attitude and she's one of my top 2 favorite counselors I've worked with!
