Hi, I am an EMDRIA EMDR Certified Therapist and trauma consultant who graduated from the University of Southern California, with years of culturally diverse trauma-focused therapy experience since 2011. I received my trauma training at the National Center for PTSD and the EMDR Trauma Recovery Humanitarian Assistance Program.

Hi there! I’m Alyssa (she/her), and I specialize in working with people of all ages who've experienced trauma or have struggled with mental illness. Having been in therapy since childhood, I understand how tough it can be to open up to a stranger. My approach to therapy is laid-back, aiming to create an inviting space filled with warmth, comfort, and and a sense of good familiarity. I take a psychodynamic, strengths-focused approach when working with clients as I believe we can't better ourselves in the present without revisiting what's impacted our development up to this point. I'm here for clients ready to explore their past to shape a brighter future, particularly those healing from trauma or mental health struggles. My approach is rooted in patience, warmth, and humor, balancing the tough moments with some light-heartedness.

Whole-Hearted Therapy Centered on Genuine Connection. Ever had therapy that feels like it drags on without any results? Research shows the Power of Connection drives roughly 60% of Therapeutic Success. My Compassionate Therapy Style focuses on Building Bridges of Trust and cultivating a meaningful connection with positive outcomes. So, how do you find the best therapist for you? That's a great question. And it's one that most people struggle with answering whether it's their first or umpteenth search. Is it the therapist him/herself, their personality, theoretical approach, or specialty? While all these factors are important, it shouldn't be your responsibility to find the best clinician; rather it's the clinician's responsibility to become the best therapist for you. I also have a particular interest in using holistic practices to help create great results for depression & anxiety disorders as well as trauma/PTSD and other mental/behavioral conditions. These include EFT Tapping, breathing/mindfulness/meditation, and Amino Acids, etc. I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker/Addiction Counselor with nearly nine years of extensive professional experience in both mental health and addiction. Further, I have a personal background in overcoming addictions as well as several mental health and learning disabilities. Whether you're seeking help to overcome addiction, mental health conditions or career counseling, I've dedicated my professional life to becoming YOUR BEST clinician.

I am a strong believer in providing a safe space for everyone. It can be difficult at times to find openness and support and I am happy to help with those challenges. It is important to develop a safe non-judgmental space to help build a better trusting relationship to help guide you and learn ways to live with more joy and fulfillment in your life. It is not easy to reach out and ask for help. It is incredibly difficult for so many people to seek the care they need. You are already taking one of the most important steps and allowing yourself to make your self-care a priority. This process can be both confusing and overwhelming, but I am looking forward to working collaboratively with you on this journey.
