Alicia Zezza Conte, LCSW (she/her/ella)
Currently based in Connecticut, Alicia is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker at a therapeutic high school. She is bilingual and works with families in English and Spanish. Alicia has been working with adolescents for over a decade.
Alicia graduated from the Yale Child Study Center’s Advanced Clinical Social Work Fellowship, where she worked as an in-home clinician providing individual and family therapy. She received her master’s degree from Arizona State University with a concentration in Children, Youth, and Families. Alicia graduated with a BA in Anthropology from the University of Colorado at Boulder. She is dedicated to offering identity-affirming psychotherapy to LGBTQ+ youth, and integrates an anti-oppressive framework into trauma treatment. Having witnessed how connection and dignity drive wellbeing at the personal and community level, Alicia believes that the worlds of psychotherapy and movement-building have much to offer each other.
Alicia’s connection to Philanthropiece began way back in 2012 as a Program Intern. Following that, she worked as the Program Coordinator for Youth Global Leadership for five years, where she directed a leadership program for Boulder County youth. She is humbled by Philanthropiece’s dedication to building relationships across borders, generations, cultures, and beyond.
Alicia enjoys playing soccer, hiking with her husband and little corgi Roma, and curling up with a good book of poetry and a strong cup of coffee.
