Hello! I'm Alyssa Norbeck and I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in Illinois. I understand that it can feel vulnerable and intimidating to begin therapy, but I'm passionate about making therapy a safe space where you feel heard and understood. My therapeutic style is empathetic, nonjudgemental, and individualized. I draw upon a variety of evidence-based treatment modalities (such as CBT, ACT, ERP, and EMDR) to help you reach your goals. I received my Master's in Social Work from USC. I've worked with a variety of age groups presenting with a range of clinical issues in both individual and group settings, including private practice, mental health and substance use intensive outpatient programs (IOP), crisis management and stabilization, Employee Assistance Programs, and in skilled nursing facilities/long term care. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, playing with my dog, gardening, crafting, and kayaking.

I enjoy working with adults of all ages and have expertise in women's issues, depression, anxiety, trauma treatment, mood, and personality disorders. hrough my open-mindedness, I actively listen and empathize with my client's perspective, striving to understand their subjective reality. I embrace alternative viewpoints, questioning assumptions, and exploring different possibilities. I remain flexible and adaptable, adjusting my therapeutic interventions to meet the changing needs and preferences of my client. By embracing an open-minded approach, I encourage my clients to explore new insights, challenge ingrained patterns, and discover their own unique solutions. This approach facilitates their personal growth, self-discovery, and the development of a deeper understanding and acceptance of themselves. Ultimately, my open-minded approach in psychotherapy cultivates a collaborative and empowering therapeutic relationship, where both my clients and I are active participants in the therapeutic process.
