Alyssa McDowell tLMFT

 

Everyone experiences life differently. There is no one size fits all. This is why I value a collaborative approach when working with you, as I believe that you are the expert of your life. My goal as your therapist is to help you feel heard, understood, and to develop your treatment approach based upon your unique desires and needs. While utilizing a non-judgmental, flexible approach, it is my duty to help you uncover your hopes and to create the future you wish to see.             
                                                                                                               
Navigating change can be both challenging and scary. It is my belief that everyone is capable of change, no matter how difficult it may seem. My emphasis on developing a supportive therapeutic relationship promotes an environment that allows you to feel safe and comfortable while working towards change. Rest assured, your thoughts, feelings, and opinions are valued when working with me as your therapist.                                                              
I feel passionate about helping teens, adults, couples, and families work through challenging times. My clinical training has given me experience and knowledge working with depression, anxiety, PTSD, trauma, OCD, relationship and marital issues, self-esteem, body image issues, and life cycle transitions. I utilize a variety of modalities, including Solution Focused Therapy, where I help you to discover your strengths and work towards the future you desire.
