Great to meet you!

Hi there! I'm Alyssa. I hope to work together to help you achieve a healthy and full lifestyle.

A bit about my approach to therapy

I approach therapy as a team. I want to know what works best for you. I am a firm believer that everyone is different, and everyone needs different supports. I specialize in Cognitive Behavior Therapy, a type of therapy that addresses negative ways of thinking.

What you can expect from our first session

Clients should expect to learn new skills in dealing with their mental health. At times, I will give assignments to complete outside of therapy. I believe this allows you to bring what you learn in our sessions into your life. I create a warm and welcoming environment, where you can share and grow.
