Adult Individual & Counseling for Relationship Issues, Depression /Anxiety, Substance Abuse & Self Esteem Issues.
I'm a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and a member of the Mental Health Association. I've been providing counseling services to the community for over 20 years. My counseling practice is influenced by three years facilitating a court-ordered divorce course for the Naples Mental Health Association and completion of the Supreme Court Certified Family Mediation Training Program. In addition, I have 20 years of on-going study and experience with the psychoanalytic thought process that suggests our current issues and choices are often determined by emotional feelings and memories from the past.

Hi, my name is Alecia, I am Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have lived in Lee County for over 30 years. I work with individuals, couples and families. Life can be a lonely place when you no longer feel yourself or are feeling overwhelmed. Anxiety, depression and traumas can feel like a cinder block on our shoulders. You may wonder how things will change? Change begins with vulnerability. To be vulnerable is to let go of the notion you have to struggle alone.

If you are overwhelmed with anxiety, stress, self-doubt, self-criticism, trauma, or depression , You are not alone.
You just want to feel better. You want to know what is going on. You are tired of telling yourself you should feel better when you know deep in your gut something is just not right. You want the reality of the situation to be acknowledged instead of being told to look on the bright side. If you knew what was wrong and how to fix it you would have done it by now. You know in your head you are supported, but still feel inside of yourself like you are all alone. You are overwhelmed and just fake it, but you are no longer just making it. You need help, but are wondering if you are going to get the kind of help you specifically need.

Throughout our lifespan, we will be faced with transitions. Children experiences changes within the family (divorce, birth, death) as well as school, friends, and daily routine. Then there’s puberty, which brings about a whole new set of changes in a teenager. Early adulthood is full of change, as well as a search for meaning and purpose. Marriage, divorce, birth of children, death of parents, middle age, retirement, and on and on! Sometimes we can move through these transitions smoothly; however, other times it doesn’t go quite as well. It’s typical to feel like there is something wrong with you. There isn’t. It’s actually typical to face transitions with opposition and increased stress levels. You may even experience some mild depression or anxiety. Counseling can help immensely during these times. We can help you normalize the feelings that you are having, and help you cope with the most difficult ones. We can help you make some changes in your daily life to move through the transition more smoothly, and provide support to you during the entire process. It’s important to remember that counselors are also here to help well people, too!

If you're experiencing worry and stress due to current or upcoming life transitions, it can feel overwhelming and hard to find a way out. Starting college, moving to a new city, beginning a first job, and building and maintaining a support system can be stressful and overwhelming. Things can become even more daunting when there are existing problems like depression , anxiety, and trauma. I've helped young adults succeed in their academic, professional, and interpersonal pursuits, and I can help you as well. I serve as a consistent source of support while providing direct feedback and guidance.

I have helped clients work through challenges such as depression , anxiety, in addition to relationship concerns,such as physical, emotional, psychological, sexual and domestic abuse.
"At the heart of counseling is listening, the experience of being heard and accepted that enables growth and change" (Toller, 1999).There are times in life when individuals feel stuck, overwhelmed with life's challenges, and perhaps not knowing what the next steps are to make the changes we desire for a balanced and fulfilling life. I believe the individual is complex and unique, as is his or her life story, challenges, and concerns. I work with you to discover your inner strengths, which in turn will help you work through your specific life challenges.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Fort Myers. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
