About Alice McKeever
Alice believes that therapy is a special place where people can have a safe space to experience and express whatever thoughts and feelings they have with support. She has worked with patients in various settings, including schools, residential centers, hospitals, and private practice, and has collaborated with multiple systems for treatment. In residential treatment, she ran weekly yoga groups for kids to increase the connection between the body and the mind. She has personally found therapy can merge the connection between the body and mind through mindfulness and body awareness. More recently, she has found the importance of structured movement and sensory interventions to manage a lack of energy or elevated hyperactivity. She has worked with children, families, and couples. The complex relationships between families and couples are a space that she has been drawn to. She finds it essential to help people understand and manage these different relationships to help with their sense of self and place in the world.
