Alyssa is a Master’s level therapist who received her Master of Science in Mental Health Counseling from The Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM). She completed her graduate internship at a community mental health center in Philadelphia where she worked with adults experiencing mental health challenges including anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, grief, addiction, autism, intellectual disabilities, ADHD and bipolar disorder. Alyssa directed therapy groups on the topics of grief and addiction. Alyssa works with children, teens and adults.

Alyssa received her undergraduate degrees in Psychology and Autism Behavioral Studies from Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia. Alyssa’s degree in Autism Studies allowed her to explore the best evidence-based practices for supporting individuals with autism. She recognizes and understands the importance of advocacy for this population. Alyssa has extensive knowledge of and experience working with individuals with autism. As an undergraduate, Alyssa worked at the Kinney Center for Autism Education and Support for four years. She started as a one-on-one support member and ultimately became a case manager responsible for her own client. Her passion for helping those who live with or are affected by Autism has been a passion since volunteering with the Special Olympics as a teenager. Alyssa honors the independence and autonomy of all those she works with. She hopes to support all her clients achieve their mental health goals, no matter how big or small.

Alyssa is formally trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) which focuses on the connection between the client’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Alyssa also incorporates techniques and interventions from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). She believes that therapy should be individualized for each client’s needs. Also, therapy is most helpful when you collaborate with the client to help them find ways to improve their life by bettering their mental health. Alyssa will provide a safe space for all clients to explore and reflect upon their lives as well as to feel supported while addressing any difficulties or areas of growth.

Alyssa is a Licensed Associate Professional Counselor (LaPC) and is working towards becoming a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). Alyssa practices under the supervision of Kelly Corbitt, LCSW.
