About me

I am here to support you with the challenges that you are experiencing at this time. I will guide you through the use of cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness techniques, dialectical behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing and other creative approaches that I gained in my Counseling and Art Therapy graduate program at University of Illinois at Chicago. For over 15 years I have worked with families and adults individually and in groups in a variety of settings; including day treatment and residential treatment programs, a children's hospital, corrections, community mental health, schools and home-based treatment. I provide trauma-informed care and address issues surrounding anxiety, depression, grief and loss, relationships, parenting, life transitions, domestic abuse and healthy coping skills. I am client-centered and strengths-based and aim to guide my clients to empower themselves to reach their full potential in their own lives.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Alisa Adams. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Alissa has a great way of suggesting small changes or alternative perspectives that have helped guide me through challenging conversations and move past being “stuck in my negative thoughts”. I look forward to continuing to grow with Alisa’s guidance.

Alisa has been wonderful! She responds in a timely manner, she reached out to me to check-in. She takes my concerns seriously and works to help me through them. She has been great!

Alisa’s experience, knowledge and approach to therapy is both supportive and thought-provoking. She doesn't just listen, she hears what is being said and pays attention to how all your pieces of the puzzle come together. That plus her personal touch sending positive and supportive messages, in-between sessions, makes you feel valued and not just a time and date on a calendar.

I have appreciated Alisa and how she has and is helping me put back the pieces. I have been dealing with a death in the family; Alisa is understanding and patience with me and my situation.

Alisa is a great listener. She is quick to understand a situation and relate it back in more helpful terms or with more healthy framing. After sessions with Alisa I feel that I am more self-compassionate, more open, and more confident about tackling challenges in my week.
