Alicia Kwande, LCSW
therapist/Clinical Social Worker
who I work with:
As a perfectionist, you strive to always do your best, but recently something happened that’s hard to adjust to. This unexpected event may be a change in your job or relationship break-up, a pregnancy or new baby, or loss of a loved one. Regardless of what happened, you’re feeling overwhelmed and like you cannot control your emotions. Your guilt and stress over trying to do everything the way it “should” be done is resulting in feeling depressed, anxious, or hopeless.. And some days, you’re not quite sure how you’ll make it through the day. You start to wonder, should I talk to someone who understands what I’m going through?
how therapy can help you:
From my own life experiences, I relate to the struggle of feeling lost and with no one to turn to for support. I can help you navigate through your “messy” emotions and uncover the true you that lies beneath. Together we will identify the unhelpful perfectionistic beliefs that have impacted your sense of self and the happiness that life offers. I will help you develop tools to set healthy boundaries with yourself and others so that you can move away from the anxiety, guilt, grief and depression that have been dictating your daily life. If you’re feeling the weight of your emotional pain is too heavy to bear, I can help. You can live your life with joy again.
I have over 15 years’ experience working in the counseling field, and sometimes, experience matters. One of my greatest strengths that I bring to our counseling relationship is the ability to listen and understand your unique way of being in the world. I have extensive experience working with people from multiple cultural backgrounds and facing a wide variety of challenging situations, including perfectionism, grief and loss, anxiety and depression, trauma, pregnancy and postpartum concerns, and relationship stresses. I am a working mother of a young child and have navigated marrying across cultures and living in different countries. I bring these experiences to support you in your healing.
I am licensed in both Colorado and Texas and can work with anyone living in either of these states.
