Alicia is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and has designation as a Child Mental Health Specialist in WA State. Her professional memberships include Chi Sigma Iota, National Board for Certified Counselors, and EMDRIA (The EMDR International Association). She has national certification in Trauma-Focused Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, and has received training/consultation in CBT + and EMDR. She received her undergraduate degree from University of Washington and her Master’s Degree in Community Counseling, from Seattle University.
In addition to being in private practice, she is a part-time Clinical Supervisor in Child & Family Services at MultiCare Behavioral Health. Alicia has worked in mental health settings since 2007 including outpatient community clinics and an inpatient children’s psychiatric hospital, providing intensive treatment for youth and families in crisis. She's experienced in counseling children and adults, providing play therapy, individual, family and group therapy. This has included working extensively with parents on positive parenting strategies in order to strengthen their parent-child relationship and find solutions to problem behavior.
Alicia finds it is useful to incorporate a strength-based approach along with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy when working with individuals, as well as Structural Family Therapy when involving their family system.
Additional theories used in her practice are Solution-Focused Therapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) depending on the presenting problem and client need. Individuals are not defined by their past, but who they are in the moment. However, when childhood experiences and/or traumatic events are in the way of moving forward, she finds that addressing those in a supportive environment can bring a sense of freedom.
