“Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.” — Albus Dumbledore from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Mental health is not an absence of suffering or struggles, but rather the ability to think reasonably and sensibly and to cope with the transitions, stresses, traumas, and losses that occur in all lives, in ways that allow emotional stability and growth.
We all live through bad days, sad times, overwhelming setbacks, and heartbreaking losses. On occasion, any one of us might burst into tears, explode in anger, reach too often for a drink or a drug. Is something wrong? Is it normal to feel this way? Can anyone help? With an aching knee or stomach pain, people often know, or can easily find out, what the problem is, what they can do about it, and whether they should see a doctor. Thoughts and feelings are invisible, untouchable, brief, incapable of being X-rayed or biopsied, and tough to evaluate.
As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I have a passion for helping individuals, couples and families who are feeling lost, overwhelmed, confused, having difficulty overcoming adversity and wanting to improve the communication with family, friends, and partners.

Alicia is thoughtful in her approach and helpful when it comes to talking through my issues with boundaries, relationships and just life in general. I always feel better after a session with her.
