About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker licensed in Florida with over 7 years of experience working as a therapist. I have worked with clients with a diverse range of concerns including depression, anxiety, addiction, incarceration, mood disorders, personality disorders, psychotic diagnoses, and ADHD. I have also engaged in therapy with many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm, interactive, and client focused. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, solutions focused, and trauma informed care. I will facilitate our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Alissa is a fantastic listener. She gives my great advice and above all she makes me feel as if I’m being heard. I’ve only had two sessions with her but I’m very happy with her and plan to keep having sessions with her.

Alissa has been great! She is so sweet and I really feel like she understands me. She is very accommodating and offers a range of ways to talk to her through betterhelp.
