My name is Alice and I am a mother, daughter, granddaughter, partner, friend, aunt, cousin, colleague, advocate & Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I am of both Black and Latino heritage and am proud of my roots. I was also born and raised in Denver, Colorado and grew up in West Denver. I earned a bachelor's degree of Social Work from Metropolitan State University of Denver with an emphasis in Child Welfare and a Masters of Social Work from University of Denver with an emphasis of interpersonal trauma studies. I have a current private therapy practice located in Aurora & Denver/ Capital Hill areas. I work with adults, adolescents, children and families. I work from a strengths based perspective and see myself as an agent of change by supporting others in emotional healing. I specialize in treating Anxiety, Adoption issues, Depression, Family Conflict, Trauma, Domestic Abuse, Behavioral disturbances/social emotional coping skills for both children and teens, as well as an advocate for Body Positivity and racial injustices.
I was inspired to be in service to others after a life changing service learning trip to Ghana, Africa in which a group of students and I fundraised to have a library built by the Ghanian community at an all girls school. Also, While in Ghana, I came across this quote, “Hye Won Hye”, which means, that which cannot burn. This quote helped me understand that we all have the ability to overcome obstacles and adversity, and to literally walk through the fire and come out with a “resilient mind." Oppression discrimination, injustice can spiral into depression, anxiety, grief and overall trauma and leave us feeling devalued overwhelmed and fed up.
