Professional statement

Alycia Bedrosian Zagaglia, LICSW, MSW, MSCJ

Alycia is a graduate of the Rhode Island College School of Social Work and is currently a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in the state of Rhode Island. Alycia also holds a Master of Science in Criminal Justice from Roger Williams University. She also holds a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice from Rhode Island College.

Alycia has spent the past 10 years of her career as a child and family clinician, working primarily with families involved in the state child welfare system. She specializes in foster care and adoption issues, custody, divorce, co-parenting issues, family therapy, and specialized parenting education and coaching. Alycia also specializes in child and adolescent mental health. In her private work, Alycia provides individual and family therapy for children and adults. She utilizes animal assisted interactions with her certified therapy dog, Cyrus Bean. Cyrus and Alycia work together to help children with learning appropriate social skills, personal space, and safe hands and safe body. Cyrus provides general comfort in sessions to those who need it, can provide kisses (on command), and overwhelmingly creates a safe and calm presence in the office setting. If you are allergic to, or are not comfortable around dogs, Cyrus and Alycia may not be the best therapeutic team for you.

Alycia specializes in working with youth and adults who may be experiencing acute stress, anxiety, depression, ADHD, trauma, and other behavioral, developmental, and psychiatric disorders. Alycia has worked with children with autism spectrum disorder and also is well-versed on educational planning/specialized instructional services in schools.


Message to clients

I believe in tailoring each treatment experience to the unique needs of an individual and/or family. I use a combination of solution focused therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, play therapy, and mindfulness techniques in my practice. I strive to work collaboratively with each individual or family to set personalized goals and interventions to support each client’s journey to wellness. I enjoy bringing animal assisted interactions into the office environment to make clients feel more comfortable during their sessions.

Prior to starting sessions, I like to empower each child, adult, or family to determine if Cyrus and I are a good therapeutic match for their needs. Through initial sessions and consultation, I implore clients to ask questions about treatment approaches, availability, expertise, etc. to ensure that they feel comfortable with their choice to pursue counseling with us. We are dedicated, compassionate, and ready to work with you on your journey. We believe everyone has the capacity to change, learn, grow, and heal and we look forward to meeting you.
