Message from Alan

You’re here today because you’re looking for relief. Maybe the joy in life has dimmed after the loss of a loved one, maybe you’re hurting from a rupture in a significant relationship, or maybe you’re uncertain about how to cope with a growing sense of depression or anxiety.

If you’re here, there’s a good chance that you’ve tried to fix this on your own, but nothing is working, and you just don’t know what to do.

I’m Alan Hickey, a therapist at Silver River Counseling, and I understand how challenging it can be to move forward in a way that helps you feel like you have a handle on things instead of juggling yet another overwhelming situation.

Over the past eight years, I’ve helped hundreds of clients: children grow beyond their trauma, couples rebuild trust and intimacy, and adults understand their addiction.

If you would like to get started with counseling here at Silver River, here’s how.

First, click the ‘Schedule an Appointment’ button, then fill out the Intake Form.

Second, we’ll reach out to you to schedule your first visit.

Finally, I’ll begin to work with you on the issues you are struggling with and support you along the way.

If you’re ready to improve communication and relationships with loved ones, increase self-awareness and understanding of your emotions, reduce symptoms of anxiety or depression, and gain an overall improved sense of well-being and life satisfaction, then schedule an appointment today. I can help.

“Alan has been an amazing asset to my 13 y/o daughter over the past couple months. Huge strides in building her confidence, socializing more, and accepting herself. He has been very understanding and encouraging throughout this process. He’s helped identify thought patterns that I wasn’t aware of before.”
