About

My name is Dr D. Alers, and I am a Bi-lingual (Spanish/ English) Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a Doctoral degree in Counseling Psychology. I have over 20 years of experience helping individuals (children and adults), couples, families, group members deal with trauma, depression, anxiety, loss, family situations, employment challenges, self-esteem, relationships, substance use/addiction or life changes. If you are ready to take the next step and work toward a healthier and happier life or willing to break the patterns and cycles of past experiences, I am here to assist you.
Sometimes individuals and families need a little extra support and guidance to maneuver through life and cope with different situations. If you are ready for change, let’s talk.
I look forward to meeting with you and building a collaborative therapeutic relationship.

D Alers Counseling & Consulting's Groups

Inner Strength and Empowerment Group

The Inner Strength and Empowerment Group focuses on building self-esteem, resiliency, and coping skills in individuals with trauma history in a supportive and empowering manner. Individual participants will engage in specific topic-focused discussions and activities while reflecting on their situation and circumstances.

More about this group

Parenting

The group is structured to empower parents by building on their strengths and improving coping skills in parenting. Parents are taught to parent each child based on their individualized needs; reduce comparison between children; increase relationships with their children; increase structure, consistency, guidance and foster independence when appropriate. Opportunity for psychoeducation and self-awareness is embedded throughout the group curriculum to reduce transference of parental experience onto their relationship with the child(ren).
