My Approach to Helping

Are you struggling with relationship issues? Do you want to make changes in your life, but are unable to? You can overcome depression, anxiety and learn how to manage anger--if these are issues concerning you. Find out what's stopping you from being able to experience a satisfying, fulfilled and joyful life. As a psychotherapist with extensive training, I take a comprehensive and integrative approach that will be specifically geared to your own unique needs. Please log on to my website www.lotuscounseling.com for more information.
I have made it my specialty to help my clients create positive and lasting changes in their lives--whether it is moving on from a marriage, losing weight, overcoming an addiction or eating disorder, getting and maintaining a relationship or managing anger.
I have learned that we all have an enormous capacity to change--when we can access our own inner power. It is through the safety and health of the relationship between client and therapist, that you can learn to have new experiences that are satisfying and find your own unique internal formula for healing.

Alessana received her Bachelor's degree from Cornell University (1976) and completed a Masters of Science degree at Barry University (2001) with a Dual Specialization in Mental Health Counseling and Marriage and Family Therapy.
