About Me

Hi! My name is Alicia Zarzuela and I am a supervisee in social work with my MSW from Virginia Commonwealth University. I have experience counseling children and adolescents (ages 5-17) who are struggling with anxiety, depression, self-esteem, and life stressors. I know that school, work, or even friends can bring stress to your life! So I will provide a non-judgmental, validating, and safe space to talk about life, while also collaborating to make achievable goals for your successful future. I'm excited to begin working with you! Alicia Zarzuela, LSW, Supervisee in Clinical Social Work, is under the clinical supervision of Cynthia T. Sherman, LCSW, while obtaining supervised post-master’s degree experience per the laws and regulations governing the practice of Social Work.


I had the privilege of watching a client acknowledge the unhealthy coping skills he was using to manage social anxiety, and begin to utilize the new tools he learned in therapy.

Our time spent together will be collaborative. Together, we will develop personalized goals, practice new skills, and utilize your strengths to tackle any challenges discussed.

Our first session together will always involve discussing expectations, limitations of confidentiality and therapeutic goals. But it is also time spent getting to know each other through games or discussion.

I have always dreamed of being a therapist. There is so much fulfillment in creating meaningful connections and supporting others on their journeys.


    What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

    Working with me, you can expect positivity, empowerment, and patience. I value a strengths-based perspective and will work with you to recognize the strengths you have to overcome challenges.

    What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

    I utilize evidence-based therapies, including: Psychotherapy, Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused Therapy & Strength Based Therapy. 

    Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

    I am naturally an empathetic, easy-going, and patient person. I will listen to your words with genuine interest and will provide the comments, silence, and/or reflection that you may need in the moment. Every therapeutic relationship will be valued as it is.
