I received my degree as a Master of Science in Clinical Psychology from the Institute for the Psychological Sciences, located in Crystal City, VA, right outside of Washington, DC. I have incorporated faith and scripture into therapy to promote hope and healing to a diverse patient population through deepening each person's understanding that "God loves each one of us as if there were only one of us" (St. Augustine). I have extensive experience working with people of all ages, but my focus areas are adults suffering current symptoms of anxiety, depression, or struggling in their relationships due to past abandonment, trauma, addiction, or dysfunctional patterns. My treatment is from a faith-based clinical psychology perspective, which means that I see Christ in the distressing disguise of YOU, and it is my privilege to serve him through you by compassionately walking with you in your pain--whether that manifests as anxiety, depression, trauma history, pattern of dysfunctional relationships, feeling disaffected with your life, etc--and helping you to identify what those thoughts and feelings and actions are that are holding you back from being the person God created you to be. Then together we will implement strategies to overcome these obstacles and heal from these wounds, so that eventually you will be free to come to a deeper peace and joy in the love of God, and fellowship with your neighbor.

Annalicia has helped me to process so many things and has given me a structured way of viewing and working with my inner self that helps me work through difficulties quicker. I am still a work in progress but I’m very pleased with the progress that has been made so far using Annalicia’s methods and also talking things through with her. Thank you, Annalicia!
I highly recommend Annalicia. She is a great listener and understands the next steps to take. She’s very kind and resourceful.
Got a lot out of our talk!
Annalicia is very knowledgeable and so easy to talk to. I feel like I’m talking to one of my best girlfriends and truly appreciate her expert advice. She helps me see things from a different perspective, and gives me simple strategies to help me where I am struggling most.
