About me

I am a licensed professional counselor with an additional certification as a certified complex trauma professional. I graduated from Chestnut Hill College with my M.S. in clinical and counseling psychology in 2016. I have been practicing for 6 years and have significant experience working with addiction issues, traumatic experiences including PTSD, codependency, depression and anxiety, along with other mental health concerns. I believe in a person centered, trauma-informed approach. I recognize all aspects of the individual and work to bring about awareness as to how our past experiences impact the manner in which we interact with others in adulthood. I believe in recognizing the needs of the individual, working together with the client to identify treatment goals and developing a treatment plan that is tailored to those unique and specific needs, while being flexible to allow for any changes needed over the course of treatment.

I believe in the ability for us as individuals to make behavioral changes and will work alongside you to help you grow and reach your identified goals. I would describe myself as open-minded, non-judgmental, compassionate and empathetic. I value the building of the therapeutic relationship, recognizing the importance of honesty and respect through the process. I hope to work with you in your own healing journey.

Please be kind to yourself,

Alisha Barnes

Alisha is so sweet and kind. I always feel like I’m heard by her. Another cool thing, she sounds a little like Drew Barrymore and that is a huge win.
