Hi! My name is Alyssa, I’m an LCSW based in NYC and provide virtual online therapy in New Jersey (NJ), Washington DC, & Maryland (MD). I specialize in supporting teens, young adults, and adults wishing to heal from relational & complex trauma, PTSD, anxiety, codependency, people pleasing, and perfectionism. I also work with anyone interested in shifting their relationship with alcohol.

I take a trauma-informed, somatic, holistic, compassionate, and relational approach as a therapist. My first priority will always be developing a strong and trusting safe therapeutic relationship between us. Then I am happy to integrate modalities I am trained in like EMDR, somatic exercises, mindfulness based approaches, mindful self compassion, DBT skills, or work on shifting thinking patterns.

Do you find yourself automatically in fight-flight-freeze-or fawn and struggling to regulate emotions? Put other people’s needs above your own or unaware of what your needs are? Have a harsh inner-critic? Struggle to set boundaries or say no? On edge, hypervigilant, or anxious? Doubt if you are enough? Feel chronic shame and guilt? If so, we may be a good fit!

I am passionate about empowering my clients to heal from the effects of trauma, develop confidence, authenticity, internal self worth, and improve the ability to take care of themselves first and attend to their needs.

To me, it’s about finding a combination of developing insight into how your past impacts present patterns, while also focusing on the here and now and taking action toward change. We will focus on the mind-body connection to create safety, before learning new ways to cope with challenges. I believe we all have the innate ability to heal and the therapy process is meant to unlock that.

I would love to learn more about you and what you are looking for to see if it’s a good fit! Please schedule a free 15 minute phone consultation with me and include your name, age, location, and why you are seeking therapy at this time. I look forward to connecting!
