I am licensed in Virginia with 8 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, coping with addictions, lgbt-related issues, & trauma and abuse. Growing up as a "pastor's kid", I've seen the incredible ways that faith can provide strength, healing, and comfort. If faith-based counseling is requested, the focus will be on your beliefs and your faith, not my own. I am not here to tell you what to believe, but to help you live your faith fully as part of who you are and what is important to you. Faith-based counseling will be incorporated only at your request and as you feel comfortable. I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey.
My approach is tailored to your needs and what is most effective for YOU. There is no "one-size-fits-all" in therapy and self-growth. I draw upon Narrative Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) primarily. I also incorporate Mindfulness, Self-Compassion, and Solution-Focused elements. We will work together as a team to discover new ways of thinking and being that enable you to cope with stress, build confidence, and overcome past suffering.
My professional experience has included work with children, families, and adults, in both outpatient and inpatient settings. I also have extensive experience working with those struggling with addiction and their loved ones, from a nonjudgmental and supportive therapeutic stance.
I appreciate the courage it takes to reach out for help. I look forward to your journey of growth and healing!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Alicia Fredericksen. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Faithful Counseling might be different.
Alicia listens so well and offers hope filled solutions to areas I’ve felt stuck in. She is great at helping me see things I would have never seen and gives practical steps to pursue the life I want to live!
