About Alicia

I use a mindfulness-based and relational approach to therapy that honors the mind-body connection and belief that the interconnectedness of our experiences are significant. I offer EMDR therapy to help you do the healing you need to lead a happier, more connected life.

What I Offer

I offer services for CA residents, and accept select insurances.

Psychotherapy

EMDR Therapy

Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP)

Psychotherapy

Something deep inside you is calling you to this work. It may be a longing for relief, direction, or reconnection to self. I am honored to offer you the support you need as you reconnect to your internal wisdom- that which creates meaning, builds relationships, and carves careers and life ambitions.

EMDR 

Reduce therapy talk time in half. EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a highly researched and amazingly effective therapy that can cut the time of typical talk therapy in half. The difference that it can make in your life is beyond remarkable. You can learn more about EMDR therapy here

Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP)

Research has shown that ketamine, used alone, can help people with severe depression who have not found relief through other treatments. Ketamine-assisted therapy (KAT), also referred to as ketamine assisted psychotherapy (KAP), combines the therapeutic effects of ketamine as a medicine with the support of a model of therapy that promotes the connection with  the “inner healing intelligence,” or one’s innate capacity for healing. This unique treatment modality can accelerate the healing process for distressing emotional symptoms, such as depression, PTSD, and anxiety.

 

KAT differs from traditional talk therapy as ketamine is administered during a therapy session, lasting approximately 1.5-2 hours. Ketamine use may result in shifts in consciousness, expanded states of awareness, and seeing outside our “normal” mind states that can help to reduce anxiety, depression, and our “normal” life stressors and concerns. Ketamine is usually given at low doses in combination with therapy to allow reflection, and help to facilitate growth and noticeable changes. When combined with therapy, perceptual shifts may occur leading to accelerated growth and healing.

At times, Ketamine may result in a psychedelic, and/or a mystical or spiritual experience. Integration therapy is a crucial component of ketamine assisted therapy (KAT) or psychedelic-assisted therapy in general. It refers to the process of integrating and making sense of the experiences, insights, and emotions that arise during a ketamine session.
