Philosophy

As a Counselor, my hope is to remind the client that they are not broken. That sometimes it’s okay to not be okay. That with God anything is possible and to provide a safe environment for growth and empowerment to occur. As a therapist, I will aim to provide clients with an environment of warmth and honor that each individual is the expert of their own life. While, collaborating with each client in their own personal journey to reach their personal goals.

Alicia is currently in her third year at University of North Texas at Dallas pursuing a Masters of Science in Clinical Mental Health and Counseling. Through her studies, she has gained knowledge pertaining to adults, adolescents, families, couples, and diagnoses development. Furthermore, she has volunteered with non-profit organizations that specialized in families of domestic violence, trauma and family homelessness. She also co-lead a bilingual youth ministry group for her local Catholic Church. Additionally, she advocates for mental health awareness within the Hispanic community and participates in Women’s Right Movement.

Alicia is a first generation Mexican American and will be the first person in her extended family to receive a Masters degree. Family is a very important component of her life. She enjoys spending leisure time with her husband and son.
