Alice Rodriguez
LPCC #10720
Certified Brainspotting Practitioner


I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC), #10720, Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor —CADC II and  Certified in Brainspotting.

I would like to help you identify and heal from issues past and present that prevent you from living your best life (including trauma, anxiety, depression, stress, codependency, grief/loss, abuse, self-esteem, and substance abuse/use).  In addition to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT),  I am a certified Brainspotting Practitioner; CADC II (certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor).  and trained  in other modalities to include Imago therapy for couples.

I have worked with veterans affected by substance use, mental illness and homelessness and worked with incarcerated women at Folsom Women’s Facility.  I am trained to work with First Responders.

I strive to provide a safe, non-judgmental environment where you can heal, recognize your strengths, and rebuild relationships.   I am committed to walking along side you as you rediscover your truth, resilience and joy in your life.  I help clients gain a better understanding of themselves by learning new skills and tools that they can use daily—I want to connect you to what matters most.

I have a Bachelor’s degree from University of California, Davis and a Master’s in Rehabilitation Counseling  from California State University, Sacramento.   I am passionate about working with people of all ages, genders, social and cultural backgrounds. With empathy and understanding, I  will work with you to accomplish your individual therapy goals.  I am currently accepting new clients. Call Alice today at 916-542-8893.

AMFT #136373
Supervised by Amanda Jacobson, LMFT # 97234


Let me introduce myself! I’m Deana Sellarole, an Associate Marriage & Family Therapist #136373, who joined Alice’s team this year. I am under the supervision of Amanda Jacobson, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist #97234. 

I work with teen, adults, couples, and families focusing on many types of challenges, such as grief, life transitions, relationship issues, and anxiety. I am a person-centered therapist, however, I will use different therapy approaches and techniques tailored to your needs as we work together. Ultimately, as a therapist, I believe my job is to make myself unnecessary to you, and will always be my goal.

I completed my Masters of Arts in Counseling from Palo Alto University and have a Bachelor of Science in Journalism and Mass Communication from San Jose State University.


When my therapist hat is hung up for the day, you can find me spending time with loved ones—my husband, my 3 kids, my extended family, or close friends—because they make my heart and mind happy. And if that time together involves a grilled cheese sandwich, even better!


I am currently accepting new clients for in-person therapy at the El Dorado Hills office as well as online throughout California via tele-health sessions. Call or text me today at 916-850-0198.

Supervised by Amanda Jacobson, LMFT # 97234

I am an Associate Marriage & Family Therapist (AMFT #130076), and am under the supervision of Amanda Jacobson, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (LMFT #97234). I am also a Brainspotting practitioner and a Certified First Responder Counselor (CFRC). I am currently accepting new clients throughout California for telehealth therapy sessions.


I have a soft spot in my heart for those with PTSD, anxiety, and other traumas, and have worked extensively with wildfire survivors. My base is in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), but I tend to use an eclectic approach, including Brainspotting, based on what is clinically appropriatefor my client. I am also an interfaith chaplain, so clients who choose may also request a more spiritual approach.


Nature and humor are two great healers, free of charge. When not in the office, I find joy caring for many animals (“love is a four-legged word”), and participating in various rescue efforts. I can regularly be found on the hiking trails around Northern California, and as such, I may also able to work with you through local “walk-and-talk” nature therapy sessions, if clinically appropriate, after a therapeutic relationship has been well-established. I believe in finding humor in as many areas of life as possible, and try to live the motto: “The only way to get through life is to laugh your way through it. You either have to laugh or cry. I prefer to laugh. Crying gives me a headache” (Marjorie Pay Hinckley).
