Alicia Myers, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Hello, I’m Alicia. I started working in the mental health field since 2009. I became a clinical mental health counselor in 2016. I enjoy supporting people on their journey. I am a lifelong learner and am always looking for new experiences. I love to make people laugh and think that fun is important. I am passionate about outdoor activities like hiking, kayaking, and paying numerous sports. I volunteer with Special Olympics as a Sports Manager and I coach year-round.

Alicia’s Approach

I have a person-centered theory to therapy and I incorporate the Collaborative Problem Solving model to approach every person where I know they are doing the best they can, with the skills they have. I strongly believe that everyone needs to be treated individually and I work hard to modify interventions to best fit my clients’ needs. I utilize interventions, such as, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and EMDR. I also work every hard at expanding my knowledge of therapeutic approaches to incorporate into my practice.
