A message from Alicia:
The supervision process, like the counseling process, can be extremely empowering and growth-producing. Counselor associates and supervisors spend many hours working together, which means that it’s important for you to take your time in choosing a supervisor who you can connect with and feel supported by. I pledge to put forth my full effort, both in preparation for and during each supervision session and ask that you do the same. Your well-being is important to me, and I want to help you build confidence in your counseling skills. I seek to support you as a team member while you walk with your clients through difficult life circumstances- what important and meaningful work!
Alicia has experience counseling clients with a variety of mental health concerns including:
- Anxiety and stress
- Personal wellness growth
- Developmental transitions including college transitions
- Education adjustment concerns (school anxiety, performance, engagement, etc.)
- Spiritual strength exploration (Christian perspective)
- Communication strategies
- Grief and loss
- Parenting and new parent adjustment
- Identity and self-esteem (Who am I and why do I matter?)
- Behavioral issues
- Pre-marital counseling
- Conflict and anger management
Alicia uses Bernard’s Discrimination Model as a frame of reference for clinical supervision. The model describes three main roles (teacher, counselor, and consultant) adopted by a supervisor as she helps counselors grow and practice their skills. A supervisor’s role is to mentor your professional development and to safeguard and monitor your client’s well-being. Alicia enjoys working as a team to set clear, measurable developmental goals at the beginning of supervision so that goals can be revisited throughout the supervision process.
