Using an integrative and trauma-informed approach, Alyssa draws from a variety of modalities including Psychodynamic, CBT, and Mindfulness, while also personalizing sessions for each client's needs.
Alyssa believes there is no rule book to navigating life and the emotions that arise during the journey. This is why she works to support each client in uncovering their innate abilities as well as thoughtful strategies to live their best life. She helps clients uncover insight into why they might be stuck in certain patterns or cycles and uses this to help them reconnect to their authentic selves and move towards a life they love. Clients have said that their sessions with Alyssa have helped them to see aspects of their life that they had “never recognized” before and have left them feeling empowered.

I have found that patience and understanding, along with unconditional-positive regard, have been the greatest tools in success with my clients and practice with an integrative therapeutic approach utilizing psychodynamic, humanistic, and CBT modalities.
Progress in therapy can help you achieve deeper insight, experience a closer connection to your sense of meaning and purpose, or initiate meaningful change in your life. Therapy is a collaborative process which allows us to navigate through your experience, explore and process difficult thoughts and emotions, and ultimately develop better ways of expressing yourself and managing life stressors.

I utilize psychodynamic and supportive strategies as well as evidence based approaches such as CBT and DBT.
I understand that starting treatment can be difficult. That's why my goal as a therapist is to create a supportive and empathetic environment so that patients can feel as comfortable as possible navigating life's stressors. I believe that therapy is a collaborative effort between patient and therapist where together we will explore patterns, repetitive behaviors/thoughts and how traumatic experiences have shaped your decisions, beliefs and relationships. The therapeutic relationship can assist you in living more mindfully and help you challenge negative thought patterns.

I combine multiple treatment techniques, from contemporary psychodynamic methods to CBT and other solution-focused approaches.
We usually seek therapy because we're interested in change. Sometimes it’s to change something specific—how we interact with a particular person, a way in which we cope with stress, or our feelings toward some life event. Other times we aim for larger transformations, looking to increase our self-awareness, or to achieve more truth and meaning in our relationships or careers. Whatever your reason, finding the right support is an important first step. As your therapist, I'll meet you with curiosity, warmth, and respect, and work to create an authentic space where we'll reflect on ways forward toward a fuller, more balanced life.

I draw on traditional approaches to therapy like DBT, CBT, and ACT and I have completed additional trainings in EMDR, AEDP, IFS, Reiki, and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy.
As humans we crave connection: to be known and deeply loved. But sometimes we may feel like there are parts of us that aren't acceptable or loveable. We may learn to be sensitive to other people's signals, discerning what we need to do so that they'll love and accept us. Sometimes, we get so good at it that we don't even realize we’re doing it anymore. In the safety of therapy, I invite you to explore your full human experience. We will shine a light on the hidden places that you may not have been allowed to explore. We’ll acknowledge the barriers you have faced along the way while empowering you to move toward your fullest self.

I believe everyone can benefit from therapy, even though it can be daunting to take that first step. I hope to foster a compassionate therapeutic relationship with people that is based on empathy, respect, and free of judgment. Many people have not had the opportunity to explore their emotions in an accepting environment, resulting in the stigma surrounding mental health and wellness. I am committed to always creating a supportive space for people to be heard, reflect on their experiences, and genuinely express their feelings.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists

How does cognitive behavioral therapy work?

Cognitive behavioral therapy works by exploring how your thoughts affect your emotions and experiences. CBT helps you identify distortions in your thinking. For example, you may tend to jump to the worst case scenario catastrophizing or think in extremes (all-or-nothing thinking). A therapist can teach you how to push back against those thoughts to ultimately change your feelings and behavior for the better. They can also provide coping skills to better deal with stressors and challenges.

When do I know to seek treatment with cognitive behavioral therapy?

It’s reasonable to consider cognitive behavioral therapy if you struggle to manage difficult emotions or behaviors to such an extent that you are not getting the most out of life on a day-to-day basis. If you want a shorter term, concrete, skills-based approach, CBT is a great option. (By contrast, other types of therapy may devote more time to exploring your past and its effects.) The decision to seek CBT also depends on the condition you’re treating; CBT is an effective treatment for anxiety, depression, trauma, and many other disorders.

How can I find a cognitive behavioral therapist for someone else?

To find a cognitive behavioral therapist for someone else, you may want to begin by discussing the person’s problem, researching cognitive behavioral therapy, and assessing whether the approach is the right fit. You could then reach out to a few cognitive behavioral therapists in this directory, explain the scenario, have a consultation with those available, and determine who could be a good match.

Why is CBT such a popular form of therapy?

CBT has become a popular form of therapy because it is effective and accessible. Robust research has demonstrated that CBT is an effective treatment for many mental health conditions. And CBT can be learned in relatively few sessions, which means that many people can engage in the process, afford it, and see results quickly. It involves learning concrete skills such as disputing unhelpful thoughts; these skills can also be taught and spread widely.
