Alicia Palmer LPC
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Oregon with an MA in Clinical Mental Health from George Fox and a BS in Human Development and Family Studies from Warner Pacific. My professional background includes time working in Community Action's Head Start/Early Head Start program, in the Pregnancy and Family Support program at Catholic Charities, and as an Addictions Recovery Counselor and Team Coordinator at CODA.
Individual and Group counseling.
I am committed to growth and know that it is often the hardest thing to do. I see circumstances in life as opportunities for growth, and I know that we often need support both in crisis, and as we seek to navigate our day to day lives. I use an eclectic approach with my clients, helping to identify goals, barriers to success, and possessed strengths to help you create healthy and helpful changes in your life, as well as to successfully navigate through life's challenges. Some of the modalities I pull from are Narrative Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, CBT, and DBT.
I am a partner and parent. In addition to spending time with loved ones, I enjoy working on projects in my house and yard, reading for pleasure and philosophical ponderings, playing tabletop games, and geeking out on nerdy stuff. I'm a Northwest gal and love opportunities to get outside and experience our beautiful surroundings.
