Alyssa received her Bachelor of Science in Psychology at Texas A&M University and her Masters in Professional Counseling at Dallas Baptist University. She has clinical experience in a university setting as well as private practice. She has worked with clients struggling with issues such as but not limited to: oppositional defiance in teens, unexpected loss and grief, self-esteem and self worth, shame issues, boundaries, parent coaching, anxiety, depression, and more.
At Restoration, Alyssa provides individual counseling as a place for teenagers and adults to come and work through struggles in their lives while feeling encouraged, supported, validated, and not judged. She believes the counseling room should be a place of acceptance and change. Additionally, she provides counseling for teenagers struggling with defiance, individuals struggling with self harm, feeling alone and needing a place to talk, and more. She enjoys being able to offer help for the whole family through incorporation of parent coaching and parent sessions as well.
Alyssa also works as a Dialectical Behavior Therapist at Restoration, allowing her to teach individual skills and lead an Intensive Outpatient Program equipping others to grow in the areas of Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Emotion Regulation, and Interpersonal Effectiveness. Alyssa loves seeing these skills increase autonomy and positive change in her clients’ lives.
