Alesia Millard (Bright)

Alesia Millard

Telehealth Therapist, LPCC, NCC, CAS

My name is Alesia Millard. I am a California native, but I traded my flip-flops and tank tops for hiking boots and a firestarter over seven years ago. I love the rugged beauty of Colorado and enjoy living in the vast, rural landscape of the San Luis Valley with my husband and three dogs.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Candidate (LPCC), a National Certified Counselor (NCC), and credentialed as a Certified Addiction Specialist (CAS). I specialize in Addictive/ Impulse Control issues, Life Adjustments to Chronic Pain, Life Stressors, Neuroeducation, Problem Solving and Conflict Resolution, Social Skills, Substance Dependence, Self Esteem/ Development of Self Concept issues, and Trauma.

I believe that every individual strives for self-worth, dignity, and purpose. My goal as your therapist is to create an environment for optimal healing and aid you as you begin the journey of self-exploration. I hope that you are ultimately able to identify your strengths and capacity to access limitless happiness.
