Therapists cannot ask their clients for recommendations; this is done to protect any clients who might feel like they have to or are obligated to even through they’d prefer not to give a recommendation. Since I cannot offer client recommendations to you, I’m offering some from my peers and colleagues. And if you would like to see for yourself, just call or text me for a free 30-minute consultation with no obligation.
As a Nurse Practitioner working in sleep medicine I often treat patients with difficult insomnias. These patients often have depression or chronic pain that further complicates their diagnosis and makes their treatment that much more difficult. I have found that working with Alicia, who specializes in insomnia, depression and chronic pain, has made the difference in many of my patient’s treatment plans and quality of life. Even if they only see Alicia for one session my patients have come back with the knowledge of how to improve their sleep habits. Her use of cognitive behavioral therapy, in regards to insomnia, results in complete resolution of symptoms for most of my patients and they are able to avoid sleep aids or get off previous sleep aids. Alicia goes above what is asked of her to make sure her patients are truly listened to, cared for and understand how to improve their issues. She is an invaluable resource to my practice and my patients.
Alicia’s manner and approach to counseling evokes comfort and connection. I am grateful for therapists like her, in my corner of the world, for collaboration to bring quality services to this area. I trust her, whole-heartedly, with my humans, and I have confidence in referring to her. In our world today, it’s nice to know someone who delivers that kind of care, compassion, and consistency.
Alicia is an extraordinary clinician who has become an instrumental resource and health care team member for me,as a nurse practitioner specialized in sleep medicine. She is reliable and professional and consistently delivers positive outcomes for my patients who struggle with insomnia, as well as with anxiety, depression, grief, chronic pain, and even CPAP therapy. Through CBT-I and her specialized knowledge and skill set, she is able to empower patients to manage their insomnia effectively, allowing many of them to eliminate pharmacological sleep aids. Alicia also maintains open communication with me as the referring provider. She simply goes above and beyond, and I consider her an invaluable asset.
