I am licensed in Vermont with 7 years of professional work experience. I am a mindfulness nature based somatic therapist. How can I be drawn to working in this electronic modality as a nature and body based therapist? Because a real connection can be made using video and chat platforms! I have been working online through the pandemic and have seen what can be accomplished! I have experience in helping clients learn practices and techniques to work with stress , anxiety, depression, emotional overwhelm, trauma and abuse. I also have experience working with integrating grief and loss. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. You are unique and so are your experiences and needs. Within the space of our shared humanity, I respect the work you are willing to do here and I will do my best to join with you to tailor our dialog and treatment goals to meet your unique and specific needs. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage- good for you for making and taking the time to prioritize your well being!

My therapist is wonderful, pays attention to detail understands my goals and how she can help me learn to achieve them. I’ve had only 2 sessions so far and I’m hooked. Thank you so much Alyssa!
