A little about me...

Hi - I'm Alicia!

Born and raised in the South Bay of Los Angeles, I earned my Bachelors degree in Psychology at UC Santa Barbara and spent some time in the work force before returning to school. Eventually, my passion for psychology took me to Pepperdine University where I completed my Masters degree in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy. 

While completing my practicum, I trained at The LGBTQ Center OC where I gained specialized experience with LGBTQ-affirming care, trauma-informed care, gender identity issues, monogamous and non-monogamous couples issues, and

co-facilitated the weekly Women's Group.


I take pride in working with first-generation college students/alumni, relating to many of their struggles first-hand from my own experience. I also especially enjoy helping adults learn to better manage severe anxiety and assist them with managing unbalanced relationships in their lives. 

When I'm not working with clients I love to travel, go to a Dodger game, get lost in a good novel or Netflix binge, or just relax at home with my spouse and our basset hound, Bruno.


Guerrero Mental Health

What is a "Guerrero"? 

Besides being a state in Mexico as well as my namesake, "Guerrero" also translates to "warrior" in English. 

I believe every single one of us are mental health warriors in our own lives and realize how often we're waging internal wars that

no one knows about. 

Even the strongest warriors sometimes need assistance in order to keep fighting, and that's where I would like to help.
