My Approach to Helping
Alyssa is an experienced psychotherapist with an integrative, outside the box approach specifically tailored to the needs of each client in a safe, non-judgmental space.
Alyssa works with adults with anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder as well as substance abuse, family problems, trauma, and other related issues. In addition, Alyssa has a unique focus on assisting individuals as going through life transitions, existential issues, and those seeking to better themselves.
Believing deeply in the power of insight and that understanding one’s motivations is the key to lasting behavioral change, Alyssa combines psychodynamic techniques with hands-on cognitive-behavioral strategies to help clients increase insight and lay the groundwork for long term change.
Alyssa is a native New Yorker, vocal advocate for mental health awareness, lover of stand up comedy, and a graduate of the Silver School of Social Work at NYU.
