I received my degree as a Master of Science in Clinical Psychology from the Institute for the Psychological Sciences, located in Crystal City, VA, right outside of Washington, DC. I have extensive experience working with people of all ages, including adults who are struggling in their relationships with their significant others. Conflict in relationships manifests for numerous reasons, but often results in feelings of being unappreciated or neglected, feeling hurt and vulnerable, feeling afraid of vulnerability and becoming self-protective through anger, sarcasm, and criticism, sometimes feeling betrayed, sometimes wondering what happened and feeling lost and alone. These feelings and the thoughts and behaviors that often accompany them are enough to destroy a marriage, but if you are seeking counseling then that means you still have one thing in common--you want to try and make it work!--and that means it is not too late. Through working with me to learn active listening skills, how to communicate your feelings without being accusatory, being vulnerable again with one another in a safe space, practicing the skills you learn in therapy outside of therapy, and learning how to treat one another with patience instead of hostility, you can not only save your marriage, but your relationship may even be richer and stronger for the work you put in to preserving it.

Annalicia is very knowledgable and has helped my husband and I in a very short time. Our sessions are never based on one of us and always about us as a couple. She does a great job bouncing questions off each of us especially the difficult ones we may not like to answer. I recommend her and Regain to anyone, it’s been great for my marriage.
Annalicia is a great counselor. She has a very calm presence and speaks about various mental health conditions in a way that’s very clinical/scientific, which has definitely made it easier for us to start therapy together for the first time. My partner and I have very different personality types and communication styles, but she’s able to bridge that gap so that both of us feel heard and understood.
I learned a lot about myself she helped me with my addiction.
Annalicia has been so great, and such a change from past counseling experiences we have had. She listens, and provides fabulous, applicable solutions to deal with the things we face as a couple, and individually.
She is absolutely lovely and does not take sides which is good for 2 hard-headed people.
