About

Stress just. won't. stop. and “work-life balance” seems like an impossible feat. Your stress has been building for FAR too long; you can't remember the last time you weren’t so overwhelmed or anxious. You can't stand how irritable you’ve become, especially around those you love. Your go-to de-stressors just aren't cutting it anymore - or it's a struggle to use them, and you’re growing tired of your own procrastination, rumination, and withdrawing from others. You want to be more present in your life & relationships. You want to feel like your old self again - or a new, calmer self - on a path of continued growth and success. You want more for yourself and are ready for change.

I can help by co-creating a brave & safe space and validating you - especially when it feels like no one understands. With Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), we can help you feel quick relief from prior traumas and distresses, eliminate triggers, and move forward feeling lighter and calmer. We'll rebuild coping skills for relief now & prevention later. I'll challenge you (with care), offer accountability, and use your strengths to help you meet your goals. Ideally, we'll also laugh together and connect as humans.

You're struggling now and contacting therapists only to then wait for responses is frustrating. Skip the waiting and take another step toward relief now by scheduling a brief phone consult directly on my website!

Alicia Brown

Psychologist

About

As a licensed clinical psychologist with experience both in general mental health and behavioral medicine, I offer a variety of services to individuals aged 18 and older. My specialty is in providing behavioral health services to promote positive lifestyle changes and improved quality of life. In journeying with patients toward health and well-being, I take into consideration biological, psychological, and social bases of health and disease. I value the opportunity to come alongside others in their pursuit of personal growth, insight, and change.

I draw from a variety of empirically based treatment modalities—tailoring my therapeutic approach to meet the needs of each of my patients. I also try to identify and address underlying factors that may be contributing to the more surface level problem(s), such as poor sleep, overbreathing, and/or nutritional deficiencies--making referrals to other medical professionals when indicated.

While some concerns benefit from getting to the root cause, I also work with my patients to address problematic thoughts and beliefs, clarify values, set goals, become more accepting, stay in the present moment, and improve problem solving skills. More important than any therapy approach, however, is the therapeutic relationship I strive to cultivate.

In addition to operating from a biopsychosocial lens, I am attuned to the spiritual needs of my patients. Although I work with individuals from any religious/non-religious or cultural background, I specialize in Christian integration—incorporating a Biblical perspective when requested. I also have an interest in integrating psychology and technology and promote the use of mental health mobile apps.
