Alissa is a licensed master social worker at Rose Hill Psychological Services, where she provides psychodynamic psychotherapy to adults. She welcomes patients who are experiencing a range of challenges, including anxiety, depression, addiction, trauma, stress, and relationship conflicts. She offers psychotherapy sessions as safe spaces where she supports patients as they confront these challenges and attempt to understand themselves, their worlds and their behaviors better.
Alissa has a strong interest in feelings of “otherness” – disconnection from society at large, loved ones, and self. She aims to help her patients explore those feelings so that they may gain a deeper understanding of themselves and of the ways in which they relate to the world around them. In doing so, her goal is to help them feel more connected and integrated. She approaches treatment with an appreciation for the diverse range of identities and world views held by her patients, and makes room for their full expression during sessions. She is attuned to questions regarding gender and sexuality.
Alissa holds a Masters degree in Social Work from Columbia University.
