As a therapist, I can understand the anxiety and fear surrounding your decision to seek therapy for either yourself; your child or other loved one. I would like to partner with you as you navigate your world. I have a passion for working with children, adolescents and their families who have problems at home, school or their community, as well as, adults. I have an understanding of adoption and foster care, multi cultural families and identity.
I provide an eclectic approach to counseling, with a belief that in order to understand the present, one must understand his or her past. I operate from a strengths-based perspective because I believe children and adults are resilient and given the right tools, can solve their own problems.
I've received specialized training and certification as an Adoption Competent Therapist through The Center for Adoption Support and Education, located in Burtonsville, MD. I want to make sure I meet your needs. Please make sure you message me directly regarding availability.

I work best with direct communication. I love that Alissa provides a session of actively communicating/ listening and offering alternatives to manage stress and perspective.
Alissa is awesome! The more she is getting to know me, she is creating a plan for me to cope with my issues.
I'm often weary when getting a new counselor, but I had nothing to worry about with Alissa. She gave me so many different perspectives and tools. I haven't felt this confident in a long time and I have Alissa to thank for that!
She is a great listener and provides ways to work around problems. She has helped me grow so much!
Alissa is phenomenal. She knew how to support me, focused on the task at hand, and challenged me in ways I didn’t even know I needed.
Alissa is a fantastic counselor and I would recommend her to anyone. She is very understanding and knows her stuff.
Alissa is awesome! She is the voice of reason that I needed!
Alissa has been nothing but helpful during our sessions. She hasn’t been my counselor long but I look forward to future time with her.
I like how Alissa is able to relate to my issues and provide coping techniques for my anxiety. She is easy to talk to and I look forward to continued growth from my sessions.
Alissa provides insight that I would never have thought of on my own. She asks great questions and provides honest feedback. She has been very empowering to me as a woman.
I could not be more pleased working with Alissa! Her approach, demeanor, and expertise are so personable and warm. I can't say enough good things about her. I look forward to continuing to work with her! ❤️
Alissa honestly had me figured out within a session or two. She had me able to discover and make change in myself quicker than I ever would’ve thought possible. As a first timer when it comes to therapy she solidified the idea to me that this is something that could actually work
Alissa is the best! She helped me through some difficult issues in a very kind and informative way. Alissa was very flexible with her schedule when it came to video/text chats which was greatly appreciated. I highly recommend Alissa Bohmann!
Alissa is a great listener and gives great feedback during sessions as well as resources after sessions have ended. She comes back to each session remembering my situation, which is unique, and is able to stand back and see things I may not have seen before as well as be very compassionate to things others have been negative towards.
Alissa is wonderful. In such a short time she has already helped me process emotuons during a very difficult and changing time in my life. She is easy to talk to, honest, and I know she is someone I can trust with very personal matters.
