Bio: Growing up as the daughter of a police officer helped Alisha to understand the family dynamics that are "normal" to first responder families. As the spouse of a law enforcement officer, she now sees it all from a different and more insightful perspective. First responder cultures are often misunderstood by those outside of the culture itself, and thus it can be difficult to find someone who comprehends the adversity faced in these careers. As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Alisha's focus has been in working with trauma, adolescents, and family dynamics. She also has extensive experience working with anxiety, depression, and grief and loss. One of her primary areas of interest is with first responders, military, and their loved ones. In sessions, Alisha makes sure to form a personal link with her clients to establish a relationship that is real, honest, caring, and helpful. Through empathy and a deep mutual understanding, I am able to bear witness to the experiences of her clients in a way that provides insight and allows for growth in the chaos of life.

C.S.Lewis once said, " You can't go back and change the beginning but you can start where you are and change the ending". I believe that you must meet the client where they are currently. To provide a safe environment to alleviate crises, identify current needs, process past issues/traumas, and identify future goals for self. Also, to help clients learn to change negative behaviors/habits, to identify their own strengths, and develop positive coping skills in order to improve their quality of life. I believe your past does not have to define you but you can use it to propel yourself forward into the future that you hope to have.

Bio: As a therapist, my main focus is to care for the concerns of the client's heart. I believe that we are made for connection and attachment. When relationships have been harmed or trauma has occurred, there is a fracture, wound or scar. This can run deep and needs to be treated with tenderness and understanding. Those who have experienced trauma may not understand the toll it has done to the brain, body, heart, soul or voice. I have the privilege of educating and finding therapeutic ways in which the client can heal. It is a true honor to walk alongside someone while they find their way towards healing and wholeness. I have the honor of serving first responders and those dear to them. I am a Certified First Responder Counselor (CFRC). I care for responders through the Missouri Crisis Intervention Team (MOCIT) (https://www.missouricit.org/first-responders). Along with MOCIT, I am an IAFF mental health provider for the state of MO (https://www.iaffrecoverycenter.com). We often find ourself wounded and do not know how to move forward. It is my true honor to care for those who have lost their way. It would be a priviledge to care for you and walk alongside you while you regain your strength, confidence and reinstate your valuable voice in this world.
