From Dr. Wes: One of the things I like best about working with Alisha is that she's constantly bringing new ideas and insights to the table. She's suggested new ways of doing things at Family Psychological Services and different ways of doing what we alread do better. She's also a voracious learner. She's pursuing her sex therapy certification and has been working with me to develop both a sexuality training program for couples and a pod-cast which we'll debut later this year.
Clients will find Alisha's energy infectious and her ideas innovative, just as I do. Whether she's working with a troubled child, a struggling parent, an adult with a traumatic history or a couple in crisis, she has an honest but empathic style that makes coming to therapy something clients look forward to. Alisha has a big influence on how we operate at Family Psychological Services. I trust her judgment and her thoughtful reflections. I'm betting that once you get to know her, you'll have the same reaction.
