A message from Alicia:

Life can get very tough. It can really help to have someone to talk to who is outside of your everyday relationships. I know that it can be a big step of faith to begin counseling.  I pledge to put forth my full effort during each counseling session and ask that clients do the same.   I believe that each person is valuable, unique and deserves to be loved well. I encourage clients to purposely make daily decisions that lead toward a healthier, happier life, and I believe that every person can live a healthy life when taught the appropriate life skills and given the right supports. I look forward to working with you as a team.
