Meet our mental health therapist
Alicia Craig-Davis, MSW, LLMSW
“Navigating life can be lonely, tiring, confusing and overwhelming. The good news is you don’t have to deal with this world by yourself. From my life experiences, I know decisions and circumstances can place us in unexpected spots, and having someone to talk to can be a lifeline to a better tomorrow. Your experiences are unique, which means YOU are the expert in your life.
With respect to my client’s preferences, I help them focus on ideas they have already tried along the way and use existing supports to help explore the barriers holding them back from a better quality of life. At Corewell Health Center for Wellness, we offer individual, couples, child, adult, senior and family mental health services for individuals ages 10 years and older. If you are ready, let’s begin this journey together.”

Mental wellness workshops
Corewell Health in Southwest Michigan offers a range of mental wellness workshops from an introduction to trauma to mental health first aid for youth and adults. Individual therapy is not the right fit for every person and situation. We encourage you to click the link below to explore our in-person and virtual workshops. These classes do not replace individual therapy. However, they are an educational tool for our communities to learn about mental wellness, trauma and resilience, and what these concepts mean. They also provide resources and skills you can immediately implement in your everyday life for improved mental wellness.
Pop into resilience through digital art
To help address the need for mental support in the community, Corewell Health developed the “Pop-Up Art & Wellness Center: Pop into Resilience” project in collaboration with community partner Krasl Art Center. The goal of the project was to provide youth in Berrien County an educational, skill-building and participatory experience using the arts to convey Community Resiliency Model® (CRM) based knowledge and skills. The activities and art are also intended to help youth learn how to heal from their experiences. Over three years, the collaboration ignited a traveling art exhibit and six permanent art installations at local sites.
Healthy coping skills
There are several ways to cope. We all use methods that suit our needs and personalities because an activity that may cause stress to one might help the other cope. Practicing a variety of coping skills may help in your journey of healing and make those challenging days or times slightly easier.
Social coping skills
• Talk to someone you trust.
• Spend time with the people you enjoy being with.

• Spend time building relationships with other people who have common interests.
Physical coping skills

• Eat as healthy as you can, including lots of whole, unprocessed foods.
• Engage in physical exercise (examples include walking, running, yoga, going to the gym, or search online for exercise videos of your liking).
