The Journey to Thriving
Hello my name is Alyssa and welcome to my practice. I believe we all deserve someone to sit with us in times of joy as well as times of sorrow and anger. I hope to be that person with you. I would love to join you on your journey to thriving within the life you deserve. Seeking support is hard and scary. During the counseling process you lead the sessions and decide what to talk about and when. I hope you take time for yourself and find a counselor today. I hope that I can be that person for you!
I am a mother, counselor, friend, daughter and lover of all things summer and fitness. When I am not supporting individuals in their mental health journey, I am spending time with my friends and family, working out, learning and trying new things, and hoping to laugh so hard that I cry as often as possible.
I see individuals, couples and families ages 2 years and older
