Not currently accepting patients

Hi there, I'm Alyssia!

My passion is supporting people to overcome the anxiousness that keeps them stuck. I believe our connection in therapy is what matters most.

My approach

My style is very relational. Therapy can be uncomfortable and push us to be vulnerable, so it is important to build trust before we dig deeper. The value of our work together is you get CLARITY about who you are, what you want, and how to get there.

My focus

I work with individuals. My specialties include anxiety, career counseling, coping skills, cultural stress, depression, job stress, racial identity, self-esteem, stress, and women's issues.

My communication style

I've gotten training and experiences that make me well-rounded. My modalities include client-centered therapy, cognitive behavioral (CBT), compassion-focused, culturally sensitive, EMDR, holistic, humanistic, interpersonal, mindfulness-based, motivational interviewing, multicultural, narrative, relational, solution-focused, somatic, strength-based, supportive, and trauma-focused.

My goals for you

Often times our traumas or anxieties keep us stuck living in patterns we don't know how to shake. My goal is for us to sort it out together and get you on a path that lets you enjoy life.

My first session with you

Our first session is all about feeling out whether I am the right therapist for you- let's talk about the context of your life, the things that matter most to you, and where you want to get with therapy. I will let you know the ways I can provide support and we come up with a plan for next steps.
