Join us in welcoming our new therapist Alicia McAllister to our growing eTalkTherapy family, who brings with her a wealth of experience and a refreshing perspective on the importance of therapy and what makes therapy successful. Alicia’s areas of focus include depression and anxiety. Get to know more about Alicia in this Q&A:
What does therapy mean to you?
To me, therapy means that there is always a path to recovery. It is a safe space for everyone to feel accepted and heard.
What makes therapy successful?
What makes therapy successful is the collaboration and strong therapeutic relationship that a therapist and their client have. Having that relationship allows for the therapist and client to work as a team to help the client achieve their goals.
How has COVID-19 shaped your role as a therapist?
COVID-19 has shaped my role as a therapist by helping me learn how to overcome unexpected obstacles, both in my personal and professional life, so that I can still offer support to those in need.
What is your life philosophy?
“The meaning of life is to find your gift, the purpose of life is to share it” -unknown
Describe yourself in three words?
Funny, Motivated, Loyal
What was the last movie you saw? Thoughts on it?
The last movie I watched was Enola Holmes on Netflix. I thought that it was a cute movie and I liked how the protagonist was witty and smart.
If you could meet someone living or dead, who would it be AND why?
I would want to meet Fannie Lou Hamer because she played a major role in the women’s rights and civil rights movements.
Share something about yourself that others would be surprised to learn?
Others would be surprised to learn that I love musicals.
