"We repeat what we don't repair."
Thanks for stopping by! I’m Alicia and would love to support you on your journey to growth and awareness. I know it takes a lot of courage to get the help you need, and I want to congratulate you on taking the first step. I am passionate about working with people to help them reach a mindset and a place inside themselves where they feel comfortable and empowered, emotionally and physically.
I am currently completing my counselling practicum under Yoshie Martinez, M. Ed. Registered Psychotherapist. I became interested in counselling after enrolling in my Honours Bachelor of Psychology at Carleton University. Now, I am pursuing my Masters of Counselling Psychology at Yorkville University.
My goal is to create a warm, non-judgmental space for you to feel comfortable to bring in any thought or concern that you would like to discuss throughout our sessions. I have an interest in working with adolescents and adults experiencing concerns with trauma related issues, eating disorders, anxiety, depression, addictions, and relationship issues. I also practice from a lens of sex positivity, LGBTQ+ friendly and kink allyship. I also am passionate about working with couples who are experiencing intimacy issues, betrayal and trauma.
I use a holistic approach to counselling by integrating various treatment models into sessions such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic/Attachment Based Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness Based Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (MBCT) and Narrative Therapy. I am also interested in Somatic Experiencing.
I look forward to meeting you and supporting you along your journey. Feel free to contact me if you would like to schedule an appointment. If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know and I would be happy to assist.
