About

Meet Alicia   

My love for therapy began at an early age. After taking my first Psychology class in high school, I felt called to this field. This was then reaffirmed by embarking upon my own therapeutic journey. Not only had I discovered my true self, I had the invaluable experience of recieving unconditional support and acceptance from another individual.

The experience of having been a participant in therapy has truly allowed me to see what courage and vulnerability it takes to be in that position. I strive to provide clients with a sacred space in which they are able to slowly build trust and be seen for who they truly are without fear of judgment, punishment, or abandonment.

If you feel that you are ready to embark upon this journey, I would love to hear from you. Let’s get started!
