I received my degree as a Master of Science in Clinical Psychology from the Institute for the Psychological Sciences, located in Crystal City, VA, right outside of Washington, DC. I have extensive experience working with people of all ages, but my focus areas are adults suffering current symptoms of anxiety, depression, or struggling in their relationships due to past abandonment, trauma, addiction, or dysfunctional patterns. My treatment is from a clinical psychology perspective, and within this I use a variety of techniques including CBT, person-centered, REBT, and mindfulness depending on what resonates with the individual I am serving. Together we can make a plan to bring peace and hope into every day, identify the thoughts and behaviors that are holding you back from living your best life, implement strategies to overcome these obstacles, and move toward happiness.

I also have experience in Addictions, Relationship issues, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Parenting issues, Self esteem, Bipolar disorder

Annalicia has helped me through a traumatic time. She provides me with tangible weekly goals to works towards, and provides supporting articles. She takes time to respond to my written messages in between my scheduled appointments when I’m having a particularly difficult week. She listens and helps me to see my problems from a different perspective which helps me works towards healing.
Annalicia has been incredibly helpful in my journey to decide between two “forks in the road” in my life. She is attentive, always remembers our previous conversations, asks thoughtful questions without bias, and is kind. I truly could not have navigated this decision without her and would recommend her (and BetterHelp) to everyone. Thank you!
She has been so helpful or for me even in just a short time. She’s extremely knowledgeable and supportive.
She was great. So helpful with my emotional issues. Very easy to work with and very knowledgeable!
Annalicia is extremely smart, competent, compassionate, and direct. All characteristics that allow the therapeutic process to be painless, and moreso, productive. She is well equipped to listen, but is clearly thinking throughout the conversation. When appropriate, she is able to care, support, and realign certain perspectives to be oriented more towards self-care than self-destruction. Overall, even if my use of the Better Help service does not continue past this tough period of life, Annalicia will go forward as one of the most profound and inspiring people I’ve ever met. Thank you!
I have to admit she is much more professional than any other therapist I encountered before. In fact it surprised me strongly!
That alone was already a satisfying feeling that I was truly able to really open up to her no matter how complex my situation was.
I've experienced one of the most difficult times of my live these past couple of months. Counseling with Annalicia has helped me tremendously. I feel confident and able to take control of my life again. I am very grateful to have met her as my counselor on this platform.
Annalicia is an amazing counselor. She is very caring and offered me extremely helpful and practical advice. I received so much healing in just my first session with her. She helped me see things from a different perspective and set tangible goals for me to work towards that were exactly what I needed. I can't thank her enough for helping me get on the path to healing. I'd highly recommend her to anybody, especially those dealing with grief and depression related to a loss.
Annalicia is caring, passionate about her work, and has an answer for everything. She has made a considerable impact on my well being within the first 3 weeks. I strongly recommend her to others.
