Areas of Expertise
My areas of expertise are in individual and relational work, difficult life changes, parenting and family work, communication, cultural identity implications, and creating healthy boundaries for any area of life and relationships. I provide a christian worldview in therapy to those who request it. I am trained as a PREPARE/ENRICH Facilitator to equip individuals dating or considering marriage, as well as trained in ASIST - Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training.

About Alicia Cherian
I'm Alicia Cherian and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of New York with over 8 years of professional counseling experience. I received my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy from Alliance Graduate School of Counseling and trained extensively at Focus on Solutions, a private practice. I received additional training at Mental Health Association of New York City, a local and nationwide crisis resource for individuals, families and professional providers. There, I gained experience in training of employees, teaching, and speaking and went on to train professional counselors and leaders at Redeemer Counseling Services all while practicing psychotherapy.
I bring an energy to therapy that makes clients feel they are seen and belong and this matters to me. I genuinely believe that the clients I see have the capability to create beautiful, long-lasting change. I listen and help identify patterns from the past and present while creating space for the client’s story to truly understand the issue. I believe in using client-centered, and systemic approaches to see the whole of a person in the context of their relationships. I use Cognitive Behavioral, Solution Focused, Emotion Focused, Internal Family Systems, Strategic, Structural and Intergenerational modalities of therapy.
I am warm, compassionate, honest, intuitive and have years of experience to meet the client where they are. I see it as an honor to hold your pain or joy as I journey with you through a life enriching experience. I look forward to working with you!
