My name is Alicia Schuster-Couch and I offer counseling services to clients who believe that they have the capacity to solve their own problems with my assistance. Within this approach, we will work together as equals, with any problems you choose to bring into therapy with the goal of getting back on the path toward greater growth. Throughout our collaborative process, I will provide clarification, encouragement, and interpretations to facilitate your movement toward your goals.
I use a variety of methods during therapy sessions that provide an integrative approach to counseling. I offer a supportive, non-judgmental, collaborative, and safe space for you to discuss and evaluate your problems.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (Alabama License number: 3906). I hold a Master's degree in Professional Counseling from Texas State University and two Bachelor's degrees in Social Work and Women's Studies from New Mexico State University. I am also a certified Perinatal Mental Health Provider (PMH-C).
My name is Stacey Gardner. Everyone experiences challenges at times for various reasons as we navigate life. It is my belief that therapy can be an effective tool to help individuals process and improve areas which may be preventing them from living life to the fullest potential. I strive to meet clients where they are at in their journey of self-exploration. It is not my role to solve problems, rather empower clients to gain insight and use strengths to overcome life’s challenges. In a collaborative environment where clients feel seen, heard, and understood, they can truly gain insight and learn skills in which to thrive.
I utilize a variety of counseling theories and approaches that best suit clients and their individual goals. I am grounded in an attachment and a person-centered style and regularly utilize cognitive and dialectical behavioral therapeutic strategies. I have a passion for working with teens and adults struggling with ADHD and family members of children with neurodevelopmental disorders and other special needs. As a veteran, I enjoy working with current and past military members and their family members. Whatever reasons bring you to seek counseling, together we will explore and identify effective individual coping strategies.
My career as a counselor was not a straightforward path. My own personal growth and personal insight led and inspired me to pursue this path. As a therapist, I feel honored to work with clients in need of support. I am an Alabama Associate Licensed Counselor under the supervision of Emily Eichhorn, LPC-S. I am also recognized as a National Certified Counselor from the National Board for Certified Counselors. I hold a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Liberty University and Master of Public Health from Wright State University. I am also a registered nurse and graduated from Gannon University with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.
