Her professional experience includes providing supervision for mental health professionals in the individual and group setting. She strongly believes in the power of human relationships, connection, and emotional growth. She is a client-centered therapist who believes that treatment is focused on you and that you are capable of discovering the answers that you have been looking for. Therefore, she seeks to explore your past experiences, and earlier attachment as themes from the past have the power to affect our current behaviors and relationships. It is Alyssa's belief that regardless of what your current stressors are, or have been, you are capable of reaching your emotional potential, obtaining balance, wellness, and happiness.
