About Me

Hello there. I'm Alan Hickey, a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Florida. I graduated from the University of Central Florida in 2015 with a Master of Arts degree in Marriage, Couple, and Family Therapy.

There's an important connection between our thoughts, feelings, and actions. They influence one another in many ways, though they are often in ways that may be confusing - at first - to the person living them. By talking about them, we can together gain a deeper understanding of how they are connected for you, then equip you with new ways of interrupting uncomfortable patterns of thinking, feeling, or interacting.

I've helped teens understand their self-worth, bridge the gap between their internal thoughts and external communication, and help them grow beyond traumatic events. I believe you matter, what you think matters. what you feel matters, what you say and do matter - it all counts - and teens are capable of being heard and understood.

Alan is professional, kind, knowledgeable. He was able to connect with my son from the first call. We are looking forward to our future sessions together.
