Child & Family Therapist
Alicia House is a therapist who specializes in incorporating music and creative arts into the therapeutic process, with a special interest in working with teens and young adult women. She is a Certified Music Therapist (MTA) and Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO).
Alicia holds a master’s degree in Music Therapy with a focus in music-centred psychotherapy from Wilfrid Laurier University. In addition, she has completed training in other therapeutic modalities such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), and psychodynamic therapy, as well as, trauma-informed and mindfulness-based approaches.
Alicia is passionate about seeing her clients move to a place of self discovery and empowerment. As humans, it can be challenging, at times, to communicate exactly how we feel with words; therefore, Alicia is committed to incorporating interventions such as musical exploration, songwriting, and artistic creation into sessions 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.
