Talking to Alissa is like talking to a friend to me. Alissa is the friend that has really great advice that challenges me to think a little harder or outside the box when I am stuck on a problem I can’t let go of. I feel heard and validated when I speak with her. She has put together a “toolbox” for me to help me get through anger, anxiety and depression. She has been a valuable part my healing journey.
