I’m Alicia – Founder and Therapist of Adorned with Life, LLC. I love listening to and playing music, writing songs and singing! When I get the opportunity to watch television, I enjoy anything on HGTV (especially Fixer Upper) and This is Us! As a wife and mommy, I love baking for my little family. My most recent mic dropping recipe was a 2-layer chocolate cake! I also love to read while cuddled in my favorite blanket!
I have a passion for working with children, teens and young adults who often feel worried and need encouragement to reach their personal goals. There is also a personal connection I have with those living through “silent illnesses” while pushing through every day as if it’s not there. After I was diagnosed with my own chronic illness – Multiple Sclerosis, I learned the importance of having someone to sit with you in the dark and uncertain moments… when you may not have all the answers or know what will happen next. I’ve been there and will make it my mission to help be that someone for you on YOUR journey.
I graduated from a performing arts high school in Memphis, TN in 2006. I attended the University of Memphis for my BA in Psychology (Go Tigers) and The Johns Hopkins University for my MS in Mental Health Counseling. My formal internship training was from Kennedy Krieger Institute Outpatient Psychiatry Clinic for Children and Adolescents. Since then, I received experience in the juvenile detention system, inpatient hospitals, outpatient mental health centers and the public school system. Through those venues, I earned my counseling license (LCPC) and was trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy + (CBT+). I am also a Certified Clinical Supervisor for the state of Maryland.
