I am a Certified DBT Therapist.
We've all been through a lot. How are you feeling? Experiencing prolonged stress, trauma, disappointment or loss can have a negative impact on mood and functioning. It can affect how our brains and nervous systems function. Do you want support while you practice skills for coping, soothing your nervous system or rewiring your brain? Often therapy is a messy and sometimes painful process of feeling expression, problem solving, and learning new ideas for thinking and behavior. The work of therapy starts with receiving support, building trust and then seems to require a certain amount of courage, and resolve...ending in a better YOU!

I have worked with children, teens, young adults, and adults, as a practitioner of DBT ,and CBT, supportive therapies, and multiple trauma modalities such as Prolonged Exposure, Traumatic Incident Reduction, TF-CBT, and Cognitive Processing Therapy.
Living a “life worth living” can seem like a path only others get to travel, while our journey feels unfair, exceedingly difficult, or at times impossible. At times we discover that our struggles are the result of the choices we made, or the choices others have made that affect us. At other times, we unknowingly hold onto faulty beliefs about ourselves or others, living as if they are true or accurate. To cope, we develop strategies to make the journey seem more doable. They can indeed be helpful and carry us toward our goals, or be the very obstacle that prevents us from achieving our potential.

I have experience teaching Cognitive Behavioral and Dialectical Behavioral skills to help manage depression, anxiety, PTSD, and other mental health concerns.
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.

I use both CBT and DBT to provide skills and challenge thought processes that the client may be struggling with to assist with challenges unrelated to trauma.
I strive to serve individuals of all identities and backgrounds who have experienced trauma. To be more specific, I have a passion for working with survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking. I provide a safe and healing space for clients to help them grow, regain a sense of who they are, improve their boundary and coping skills, and improve their resilience after experiencing a trauma. I also enjoy approaching therapy in a collaborative way in which the client and I can work together to identify what strengths they already possess and build off of those strengths to address challenges in their lives.

DBT is also used to provide additional strategies.
At any age or phase of life we all want to be living our best life. Anyone can encounter situations or experiences that stand in our way to feeling happy and fulfilled. Counseling doesn't have to be for only dire or crisis situations, although it can help then too, but simply talking with someone who is objective and accepting can truly help to achieve a more satisfying life. The issues a person brings to counseling are so varied and vast that a skilled counselor is open to all people and all situations.

To do this, I use EMDR, SSP, IFS, DBT , CBT, and other therapy modalities as needed.
My guess is you are here because you or your child have recently discovered something about yourselves that has made life challenging. Maybe you just got a diagnosis from another provider and you don't know what to do with it. Maybe you're looking for a diagnosis that won't be delivered in a stigmatizing manner. For this reason, I'm very happy you are here! Taking that first step to learn more about yourself is challenging. I'm glad you are able to take this next step in your mental health journey!

I believe that everyone needs some extra support at times. My goal as a therapist is to work collaboratively with clients to help them find their way through life's challenges. Encouraging the client as the expert on their own life, I would draw from an eclectic, strengths-based, approach that might include elements of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy informed skills practice ( DBT ), EMDR, trauma-informed mindfulness and yoga/ Y12sr, sandplay therapy, and more, based on the latest research to assist clients in finding the result they desire.

As a clinical mental health therapist, I work to assist in surmounting challenges with a Strength-Based and Person-Centered approach while utilizing skills from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy ( DBT ).
Collaborating with adolescents, adults, and families to work toward improving mental health and general wellbeing is of great importance. While transparency is encouraged, building a strong therapeutic relationship takes time and is crucial for successful treatment. Regarding barriers, it is essential to meet individuals where they're at to avoid setting unrealistic expectations.

I am DBT trained and offer DBT informed therapy.
My ideal client is someone who wants to make steps to change their life for the better. What "better" looks like depends on their needs, and we will work together to find it. They would be someone who needs a helping hand and support to reach their goals and get through life's difficult times. This person may be seeking out therapy to find support that they don't have in their life already or to bolster their existing support system.

**I am doing telehealth and in person appointments. When you are faced with challenges, conflicts and loss, it can be difficult to overcome on your own. I believe we all have the strength and knowledge inside of us, we just need a little help finding it, and we all need someone with whom we can express ourselves. Life challenges can bring us to a place where support from a neutral and caring professional can make a needed difference. Counseling can help you get to a place of recovery, peace and empowerment.

What type of Okemos mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Okemos?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
