Alice Palen, LPC Counselor

I am Alice Palen, a Licensed Professional Counselor specializing in Expressive Arts Therapy (ExAT).  I have two adult children who each have two children. When I look at them, I remember the intensity and range of emotions, as well as feeling overwhelmed with concerns, and joys, that I experienced during pregnancy and after birth. 

I am committed to helping individuals enhance their personal sense of well-being. I first articulated this goal to myself after a conversation with a teen daughter of a domestic violence victim at a women’s shelter. She said, “Could we please have a group where people do not leave crying?” I have taken that to heart ever since.


To that end, I use Expressive Arts Therapy, Person Centered Therapy, and Positive Psychology, and to help clients develop skills to enhance their personal well-being with an increased sense of optimism and confidence in their ability to meet life’s challenges.  If you would like to meet with me in person or via Telehealth I invite you to call the office at (907) 746-6644 to set up an appointment.
