I have been working in the mental health field since 1995. I obtained my LCSW, in Idaho, in 2004. My LICSW was obtained in 2009 and my LMHC was obtained in 2001. Both of these licensures are in Washington. I have experience working with a wide range of concerns including ADHD, anger management, OCD, Eating Disorder, Trauma, Anxiety and Depression. I also have experience working with victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.
I believe it is important for an individual seeking services to be able to participate in creating their treatment plan for therapy in order to assure that their goals are met. It is my opinion that a therapist should be open minded so that individuals are comfortable discussing difficult topics.
I look forward to the opportunity to serve you.

LCSW #LCSW-25910 (Expires: 2022-05-07)
She is working with my teen and my teen is improving. She is becoming more confident, taking charge of her panic attacks and depression and teen counselinging power over her abuse experience. She has gone from victim to victor, thanks to Alicia's guidance. As a Mom I am thrilled!
Alicia is awesome. I can’t tell you how refreshing it is to finally have found a therapist that actually listens and provides Helpful insightful advice rather than your typical “just try thinking this way” bs. I’d totally recommend her to anyone looking for a laid back yet professional, and wise therapist that actually cares.
She has been wonderful. I’ve made a lot of progress in a short period of time.
Alicia was really wonderful to work with. I've been struggling quite a bit with depression, anxiety, and a lot of overwhelming life changes. She was always open to discussing whatever was important and on my mind for that week, available through messaging and encouraged me to contact her if I needed some support between sessions, and even checked in if she knew things were particularly difficult. I feel comfortable talking with her, and she has helped me look at things from a different perspective and ground my thoughts and emotions. I greatly appreciate how she went above and beyond to help me find support systems, and methods to work through things and ease my anxiety. I would definitely work with her again if needed, and highly recommend her!
I have not even had a session with her and yet she is already making my life easier in dealing with these people. She is a special person.
Alicia has been helpful.
She responds to my messages.
She seems educated about things
that people need help with.
Alicia is really great. She listens, provides honest feedback and is always eager to work with me. My mind bounces around a lot and she is able to help me wrangle my thought in for productive sessions.
My daughter is typically very reserved and keeps her emotions to herself. After a couple of sessions with Alicia, I noticed she has come out of her shell a lot more and is the one now who initiates conversations about her thoughts and feelings. She is very comfortable with Alicia and feels safe opening up to her, especially in regards to issues from the past of which she never wanted to address prior to therapy.
She listens to my teen and my teen loves her
Very attentive, great listening skills and very helpful in giving advice
Insightful, professional, and Down-to-earth, Alicia Powell is everything I look for when shopping for a therapist. She checks in on me often and reminds me to utilize our many methods of communication to keep in touch if any issues or questions arise between sessions. I love her attitude and she's one of my top 2 favorite counselors I've worked with!
