It’s been a long time since you have had peace in your family, and you are ready to take a step towards harmony. But, how do you find a therapist in San Jose, CA that you can really trust? The process of therapy needs to be with someone who understands parents and teens so that you can trust them.
Hi my name is Alicia Hess and I became a Licensed therapist after growing up in the San Jose, CA because I saw people struggling to manage it all, around me in the Silicon Valley despite many “having it all”, people weren’t getting the support they needed.
I enrolled in a Master program in Social Work to better understand people and started applying the skills I was learning by helping foster parents to balance having their own family and caring for a child in need.
I then started helping youth in the foster care system and on to those who had Individualized Education Plans and needed mental health services at school.
Lastly, I had a passion to work in the hospital setting to help families in crisis, who were dealing with a new diagnosis of Depression or Anxiety that brought them into an inpatient program.
While all these settings are different the commonality is the human experience and being in pain or dealing with a change/transition. This led me to get training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Positive Discipline and Trauma-Focused CBT, to ensure I can treat and support families whether they are in crisis or receiving a new diagnosis of Anxiety, Depression or ADHD. No matter what type of challenges you have been through-I’ve got the tools and strategies that really work.
And if we work together and things don’t work I will refer you to someone else who can support you. I care most about you healing and moving in the direction you desire not staying stuck.
If there has been any major trauma in a family members life I’m also able to treat trauma with TF-CBT.
