    I have had the pleasure of working alongside Aliya Saulson and I can confidently say that she is an exceptional therapist. Aliya possesses a wealth of clinical knowledge and expertise that is evident in her approach to therapy. She is skilled in a variety of therapeutic modalities; and this depth of knowledge allows her to tailor her approach to each client's unique needs and circumstances, while focusing on maintaining a strong, supportive, empathetic therapeutic relationship. One of the things that I admire most about Aliya is her unwavering professionalism. She is incredibly thoughtful and attentive in her interactions with clients, creating a safe and welcoming space for them to explore their thoughts and feelings. She consistently demonstrates the utmost respect for clients, colleagues, and the therapeutic process itself. In addition to her clinical and professional strengths, Aliya is a champion of diversity, equity, and inclusion in our field. She prioritizes cultural humility and seeks to understand and honor the unique experiences and identities of each client. Aliya actively participates in and provides professionals with training opportunities to further their understanding of how to provide culturally responsive care. Her commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion is truly inspiring to her colleagues. Overall, I feel privileged to have worked with Aliya and would highly recommend her to anyone seeking high-quality, compassionate, and effective therapy.

    While I haven't been to ChangeWell Psych, Ms. Aliya Saulson was my therapist at her previous practice. I cannot speak highly enough about her! There are so many things to appreciate about Aliya. In each session, she embraces your concerns with her warm energy. She doesn't stop there, though -- she is phenomenal at challenging your harmful thinking patterns, but in an empowering way. It's rare to find a therapist that strikes that balance as harmoniously as she does! I would recommend Ms. Saulson to anyone, but especially those navigating the uncertainty of their early 20's. She helped me find purpose in my career, work through a traumatic incident, and effectively manage my stress.

    I could not recommend ChangeWell Psych more highly! Leia is at the top of my list for therapists who work with teens and adults. She is well versed in many therapeutic interventions. She is thorough and thoughtful in her approach. But, most importantly, she is a likable and caring person. Look no further than this practice when looking to make changes that you desire.
