“Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside awakes.” – Carl Jung
Alice believes that all people have the innate ability to heal themselves but sometimes get lost on their path to healing. Her approach is eclectic, combining both traditional, western psychotherapy with holistic models that consider the whole self – body, mind, and spirit. Alice particularly enjoys using the Process Model because it focuses on the here and now, bringing her clients into the present moment, to work experientially with what is most alive for them. She also uses expressive arts, transpersonal, somatic, humanistic, and Jungian depth psychology to help clients find their inner wisdom and strength. Alice provides a safe, non-judgemental space for her clients and believes in unconditional positive regard for all people.
Alice’s passion for helping others and interest in spirituality lead her to pursue a bachelor’s degree in psychology with a minor in holistic health from San Francisco State University. Following her undergraduate program, she was a therapeutic behavioral services coach and worked with children, teens, and caregivers in a variety of settings including community wrap-around programs, special education, foster care placements, and group homes. After taking a break to travel, get married, and raise her daughter, Alice returned to school to pursue a master’s degree in holistic psychological counseling from John F. Kennedy University.
Alice currently practices therapy as a Marriage and Family Trainee under the licensed supervision of Steve Smith (MFT#46347). She is available to work with children, teens, adults, couples, and families and is LGBTQI friendly.
