Alicia House, MMT, RP(Q)
Alicia House is a therapist who specializes in working creatively with children, youth, and families experiencing a range of challenges and difficult life circumstances. She is a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO), as well as a music therapist, and currently practices with ongoing clinical supervision.
Alicia holds a master’s degree in Music Therapy with a focus in music-centred psychotherapy from Wilfrid Laurier University, and has completed trainings in other therapeutic modalities such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT). Alicia is committed to professional development and plans to embark on more continuing education to further build on her clinical skills.
Through the incorporation of music/creative arts in therapy, Alicia is passionate about seeing individuals and families move to a place of self discovery and empowerment. Children don’t always communicate with words; therefore, Alicia is committed to incorporating interventions such as musical exploration, songwriting, and artistic creation to help clients understand, process, and communicate their emotions, as well as, safely and effectively build relationships.
Alicia was born and raised in the Hamilton area. In her spare time, she enjoys writing
music, cooking, spending time with friends and family, and exploring new places.
