Our Clients' Testimonies

Rubber Plant
"Alyssa is understanding and insightful. The exercises she came up with helped us better understand the differences in our communication style as well as our values, and how to work through those differences. She knows how to get to the root of the issue and ask the hard questions. I cannot recommend Alyssa enough."

S & K, Previous Couples Therapy Client

"Alyssa is great! She consistently challenges my thinking patterns to identify roadblocks and work through them, which is something I value in a therapist. I have always felt comfortable and listened to during our sessions, like I was speaking to a trusted friend. She takes the time to get to know her clients in order to tailor the best treatment and I have seen incredible progress over our time together. Highly recommend!"
