Scrolling. Not sure what you are looking for on the page? That is okay. We are all looking for that one thing that makes us stop scrolling, whether that be an image, a quote, or person that resonates with us, that speaks to us. We stop with the possibility that someone else might be able to see us and understand us or someone we love.
Hi and welcome! My name is Alyssa and I believe that you have already made the hardest step. You have made the decision to pursue therapy. I want to validate how hard that step is, and I am glad that you are here.
I enjoy navigating the complexities of life with female, male, and non-binary adolescents and adults, couples, and families. My areas of training include identity work, life transitions, grief and loss, communication patterns, anxiety, and depression.
I believe growth is fostered through connection, validation, and questioning within a safe, contained space. I value the roles culture, socioeconomic status and spirituality can play in our lives.
In therapy I view problems existing outside of the individual. I believe that problems occur when we are not living out our preferred narrative due to life changes, grief and loss, societal pressures and trauma, to name a few. I would like to partner with you to develop a treatment plan based on your goals so you can live out your preferred narrative. It would be a privilege to hear and bear witness to your life’s narrative.
I graduated from Saint Mary’s University with my master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. I am currently under supervision while working towards clinical licensure as a Marriage and Family Therapist. When I am not practicing therapy, I enjoy the outdoors, photography, and cooking.
