My name is Alyssa Balasco. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. My approach to therapy is supportive and down to earth. My areas of practice include individual therapy for adults and older adults who are experiencing depression, anxiety, previous trauma, life transitions, and attachment-based/relationship issues. I also work with individuals who identify as LGBTQIA+.
My theoretical approaches are always client-centered and trauma-informed. I tailor each client's therapy to include psychoanalytic, psychodynamic, attachment-based, and or cognitive behavioral therapy interventions. I view each client with unconditional positive regard to foster a space where each client is free to explore their experiences and emotions without judgment.
I provide individual therapy to adults of all ages who experience depression, anxiety, trauma-related issues, relationship issues, and attachment-related issues.
My communication style
The tone I create for each client is down-to-earth and supportive. When appropriate, I include humor. I like to create an environment where clients can feel comfortable identifying and addressing their experiences, emotions, and actions free from judgment.
