    Facilitators

    Alicia Racine, LMHC

    Alicia Racine is an accomplished performance artist and a licensed mental health counselor, currently residing in Los Angeles, California. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting from Boston University, and a Master of Arts in Mental Health Counseling from the Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis. Combining her interests in both theater and therapy, Alicia discovered the powerful connection between storytelling and relationships. How we self-narrate influences our lives and is pivotal in her work. She believes in evidenced based practices of short term Psychodynamic Therapy, Transference-Focused Therapy, Exposure & Response Prevention and Mindfulness.

    “Many of us recognize areas of our lives that lack fulfillment. We long for love, belonging, a chance to breathe and feelings of success. Trauma, addiction, and negative schemas often make achieving our goals difficult. We find ourselves right back where we started as if in a loop. Most of us, need someone to actually hear us and see us. What if therapy does make a difference? What if taking the time for yourself to explore dynamics and make behavioral steps offered you peace and joy?”
