After submitting an application package that includes transcripts, references, and video responses to a structured interview, qualified candidates are invited into a multi-stage interview process. During the process candidates will meet with clinical supervisors, perform a mock therapy session, and participate in a training with the MyCounselor.Online clinical team. If advanced from the final interview with the Director of Clinical Services, candidates are offered a position on the clinical team and matriculated into the MyCounselor.Online residency.
During residency counselors complete multiple rotations of clinical training and experience with specific populations, including individuals, couples, families, and teens. Specifically, residents are trained in the MyCounselor.Online proprietary model of care: Neuroscience Informed Christian Counseling® (NICC) as applied in practice with various presenting issues.
The thorough training our counselors receive in a broad array of specialized rotations equips them to address counseling concerns ranging from the common to the complex.

A Note from Alicia
In my years as a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I have a strong passion for working with others that are looking to partner in taking a bold step towards experiencing vulnerability, transparency and self-discovery while on their journey of seeking a personal and sacred place of healing.
I believe trust and faith are essential to a good working relationship, so that’s why I make it my practice to demonstrate acts of concern, care and compassion to my clients by holding space for them in this courageous stage of life.
During counseling my work with individuals will be about coming alongside my clients as we deal with issues of self-esteem, anxiety, depression, and different personal traumas. Together we will work on getting back to the love of self and God.
I also believe that God serves as the core in most of the work we do as therapists and that your desire to seek his love and wisdom during your trials is a great first step in your healing journey. Whether you are feeling stuck and yearning for growth, overwhelmed and seeking contentment, or discouraged and needing solace, know that you will not navigate these troubled waters alone.
As Psalm 30:5 states “…Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning.” Let’s work on unearthing that joy together.
I enjoy spending quality time with my husband of 10 years and our three daughters. We enjoy sightseeing, hiking, exploring trails and traveling. Also I have a passion for interior design/home decor and music
