She spent the following 19 years practicing in public child welfare and adult protective services in various roles, mainly in Western North Carolina.

Alisha is passionate about working with children, parents and families to heal past traumas, strengthen relationships and overcome present life stressors. She welcomes individuals of any age to her practice, and focuses on the healing aspects of spirituality, working to integrate a person’s own spiritual beliefs into the process.

Mark Siler – MSW, MPS, LCSW, LCAS
After studying history at Wake Forest University, Mark obtained a Masters of Social Work at East Carolina and worked in child welfare. Things took a turn when he was given the chance to be a Clinical Pastoral Education resident in Charlotte, NC, which he did for two years. It was in this pastoral role and realm that he found his place. Mark eventually completed a Masters of Pastoral Studies from Loyola University in New Orleans, was ordained and found work as a prison chaplain in Marion, NC. From 2016-2020, he was the Associate Pastor at Haywood St. Congregation in Asheville, NC, a church that focuses on building community with those experiencing homelessness, unsupported mental illness, addiction and poverty. There, he witnessed up close the barriers that people with high levels of trauma and few economic resources face when seeking counseling support. With the encouragement of CareNet, he obtained his associate license in clinical social work and is now offering counseling to the Haywood St. community and beyond. He has a particular interest in the healing of trauma, the path of sobriety, and barrier-free/low-threshold counseling for anyone who wants it. When not involved in those endeavors, you would likely find Mark enjoying time with his wife and two adult daughters, running in the woods, reading a good book, tending to his family farm, taking a nap or playing the guitar.
