My name is Alicia Sunflower—more formally I am known by my given name: Alicia Gleason, MS, LMHC, NCC. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Washington (LH60718127), a Medicine Womxn, Artist, and Teacher. My goal as a professional counselor and healer—as spiritual and human being—is to help people and communities heal trauma so they may live in ways that enable and empower them to be free and happy.
I am a trauma specialist—not only as a counselor and medicine person—but also as a trauma survivor and a thriver. In my journey I have come to understand not only how to help others heal and grow in the aftermath of traumatic experiences, but how to help them become their own self-healers and self-liberators. We are all born with an innate ability to heal ourselves, and the desire to become the best, brightest, and most fulfilled versions of ourselves. It is my mission to help my brothers and sisters of Earth to be empowered free individuals who live life true to themselves and the wisdom of their own hearts.
My Prayer and passion
It is my strong belief that we have the ability to heal our shared ancesteral psychological-emotional-cultural traumas and dysfunctional and oppressive systems through healing ourselves as individuals and in community. For me, being a trauma healer means that I engage in sacred activism and seek to play my part in helping humanity heal from the traumas we have been enacting on ourselves for thousands of years. It is with eternal optimism that I heal my own traumas and help others heal theirs, so that we may heal the world together and co-create a culture of Peace, Love, Unity, Respect, and Balance for all.
