(Works at Ambercrest Office location)
(Supervised by Dustin Shepler, PhD, LP)
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:
- Behavioral Issues
- Gender Identity
- Low Self-Esteem
- Parent-Child Counseling
- Play Therapy
- Relationship Concerns
