About

Laurissa received her masters in social work at The University at Albany from August 2016 to May 2018. During her experience of obtaining her CASAC-T education hours, she took an Introduction to Social Work class and fell in love. She applied in 2016, now has 4 years of experience with counseling. Laurissa started in the field working with adults diagnosed with serious and persistent mental illnesses who resided in a group home, which ranged from young adults to elderly.
Laurissa has also worked with adolescents and adults struggling with substance use and/or mental health. She trained in the group home setting/congregate care residential internships (Albany County ACT Team, Amsterdam High School) and substance use outpatient clinic. She utilizes Motivational Interviewing, Person-centered therapy, and CBT.
She creates a judgement free/open minded zone and let the clients guide her in the direction they want to go for their therapeutic goals, allowing the clients to also teach her. Laurissa would like to show her clients that they can gain a sense of control in their lives no matter where they come from and that emotions and mental health can be managed.
