Alliance Counseling Tackles Family Challenges

The eight licensed mental health counselors at Alliance Counseling specialize in helping people through life's rough patches at locations in Crestview and Fort Walton Beach. They also have the only Spanish-speaking therapist in town.

Issues treated range from grief to PTSD, but they specialize in relationships between family members, couples, individuals, children and teens. “You often find people have a career plan, a financial plan and even a parenting plan, yet no marriage plan. We help couples learn to appreciate other’s differences and work as a team to solve problems," says DeAnna Hickenbotham, MA, LMHC, NCC.

Counselors also participate in charities and programs such as Military One Source, offering up to 12 free sessions for military; Give an Hour; St. Simon's; and Teen Challenge. No one is ever turned away for monetary reasons.

Locations: 13 Memorial Pkwy., Ste, 101, Fort Walton Beach. (850-226-6828); and 396 Garden St., Crestview. (850-398-6173).  For more information, visit
