Hi there! I know how hard it can be to reach out for help and I hope you know that you should be very proud of yourself for taking this first step to focus on you! I know it may not seem this way sometimes, which may be in part why you're here, but I also want you to know that change IS possible and things CAN be different!

My name is Allyssa and I am a LMSW and Certified Clinical Anxiety Treatment Professional. I work with individuals with a wide range of difficulties from anxiety, depression, stress management, and self-esteem, to relationship issues, grief and loss, unhealed traumas, and other life stressors and transitions. We all need a listening ear and support during challenging times in our lives. My goal in our work together is to help you start living the life that you want to live by helping you to gain the skills you need to change those unhelpful thoughts and habits that have been getting in the way of that.

I use a person-centered approach because I believe that each one of us is unique and have our own set of strengths. Therefore, the techniques and modalities I use in treatment are individualized to meet your specific needs and to help you achieve your goals. I am so passionate about the work that I do and am committed to helping you create lasting changes in your life so you can start living your life as the best version of yourself. I look forward to meeting you and starting on this journey together!
