Alicia completed her
doctoral work at the Michigan School of Psychology and her APA-accredited
predoctoral internship at Cleveland State University Counseling Center. She has experience working with children,
adolescents, and young adults empowering them to understand themselves and
their emotions to help overcome emotional and interpersonal difficulties.
Her intention as a psychologist is to provide a safe, supportive, and
non-judgmental atmosphere. She
believes that the most important aspect of therapy is developing a strong
relationship with her clients through the use of empathy, unconditional
positive regard, insight, and authenticity to encourage self-understanding,
self-worth, and self-acceptance. She also helps clients understand how
their thoughts, behaviors and actions are connected and manage your emotions by
identifying triggers and finding coping strategies that fit your needs.
Alicia practices from a humanistic orientation while incorporating elements from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance commitment therapy (ACT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), and affirmative therapy. She also provides play therapy for younger children to help them convey their thoughts and feelings. She focuses her work on children (age 5+), adolescents, young adults, LGBTQ+ clients and specializes in the following areas:
