From college freshman to non-traditional and international students, I want you to know you are not alone. Young adults may sometimes struggle figuring out who they are, their values, belief systems, sexuality and relationships. I enjoy working with those facing challenging times or adjustment to the loss of a loved one, job, career, or relationship. I have experience in treating sexual assault survivors, IPV/DV and post-childhood sexual abuse. I have counseled survivors of all ages and genders, as well as supported clients during criminal and civil court proceedings.

Our own thoughts can be both a positive and negative place to be. I believe that psychotherapy, matched with a very warm, welcoming, and beneficial therapeutic relationship, can be a wonderful process in which we are able to see our thoughts in different ways. Through my own experience with therapy, I found that I was able to give my positive thoughts/experiences more room to shine, while also finding different, more beneficial perspectives, in which to view my maladaptive thoughts. This is an experience that I hope to be able to replicate with each and every one of my clients.

Having worked with women for over 14 years in sexual health education, my passion for helping them led me to seek my future in counseling. I carry the Sensuality, Sexuality & Survival certificate empowering me to work with those whose intimacy has been impacted by cancer. This program allows me to work side by side with current cancer fighters, survivors, and their partners in dealing with sexual health-related intimacy.

There are times that our thoughts take up a great deal of our life and lead us to be afraid, confused, angry or to feel defeated. I have supported many individuals when they are experiencing this level of depression and hopelessness. This may be the lowest point of your life, and you may be exhausted from feeling this way. As a therapist I love to sit with clients as we explore these thoughts together to see what is leading to these strong feelings and emotions. My goal is to see my clients heal and allow them to gain control in their life, as I believe they all have this ability inside of them.

At one time or another all of us face something in our life holding us back from what we want to accomplish. Over the past 10 years, I have learned whatever is holding us back usually comes in forms of self-defeating thoughts alongside emotional dysregulation that is strengthened with habitually repeated cycles. Emotionally defeating our sense of self and over thinking unfortunately goes together. Our thoughts can seem so powerful, so true. When bodies agree, we have a connection. I can help you break the connection that is no longer working. When we remove, we replace. Let the new cycle begin! Give me a call if you're ready!

In my role as a clinical therapist I have found my passion in helping others remember and re-experience their own strengths and courage. I use a combination of several clinical interventions that have a strong solution focused baseline with plenty of room carved out for processing and simply feeling what needs to be felt. In my work I focus heavily on those who are seeking to recover from trauma, the impacts of severe and persistent mental health symptoms, religious trauma, sexual abuse as well as those who face anxiety, depression and ADHD symptoms.

Life is messy, confusing, and at times lonely and defeating. Whether it's trauma, grief, self-esteem, stress, relationship tension, or mental health, my goal as a therapist is to empower my clients to seek change and achieve optimal well-being, whatever that may look like for them. Clients have different needs and goals, but many want to feel safe, secure, loved, hopeful, and whole. With a deeper understanding of ourselves and our relationships, there is an opportunity for change and growth. We can accept ourselves for who we are, grow closer in our strained relationships, accept our imperfections, and find our identity.

Improved emotional health supports our whole-body wellness. My joy in psychotherapy is to accompany people from places of distress to paths of relief, positive change, expanded self-worth, and deeper bonds with the people they love. Worry, anxiety, sadness, and relationship conflict can take a toll on our immune system, confidence, productivity and connection with others. I believe all people are born noble. We all have strengths and inner capacities for growth and healing. Healing is a process--sometimes it is a quick journey, in other instances it may take more time. Therapy can be an important part of that process.

Life is already challenging. When things like depression or anxiety arise, it can become downright unbearable. Alyssa understands the tremendous pressure that work, housekeeping, relationships, and simply being a human being in this world can carry. If you are an adult, and you, your partner, your family are looking for a safe environment to exist, learn, and interact, I would love to help you create that! Before treatment, many times the goal is to survive; I want to help you build the skills that will allow you to thrive. Because one thing is certain – life can feel worth living even when things start to run off course.

Often family history and life experiences have taught us unhealthy skills of dealing with the painful events in our lives. You may have found yourself in place where you are reacting in ways you never thought you would and not living the life you want. It's common to not even know why you are feeling the way you do. Exhaustion, frustration, anger and being easily overwhelmed are just a few common indicators there is something going on with your emotional self. If you are struggling know there is a different way.
