About Alyssa

Hello, my name is Alyssa. I am so glad you are here!

Therapy with me is authentic. I don’t pretend to be anything other than a fellow human sitting alongside you who wants to listen and offer support. And as it happens, I have some specialized training in doing so. Know that I can hold whatever it is you bring me with care and respect.

I have a heart for working with grief, addiction and trauma and how each of these impact relationships. In my own experience with loss, I have realized the vast events that can fall under the grief umbrella. Losing loved ones, losing a pet, aging and illness, healing from miscarriages or empty nesting, resolving or ending a relationship, losing your job, or losing a dream. We have work and school and leaky pipes and bills to pay. And then the universe adds those bigger losses to our plates. Suddenly, it’s all so overwhelming. Grief impacts our ability to continue, continue showing up, continue loving, continue trusting.

In the midst of the pain we face in life, we all seek ways to cope, it’s natural. For many this comes in the form of substance use, behavioral addictions, or infidelity, which for a time act as suppressants to this pain. What we find is that the pain does not go away and with prolonged use our pain only intensifies. It can erupt into our families, our work, and our passions.

Through individual and couples therapy, we can process the pain together, I will offer psycho-education behind reactions, we will rewire the nervous system away from destructive and traumatic patterns, and learn skills to together keep surviving.

I utilize Gottman, PACT, and Emotion Focused Therapy in my work with couples. And Narrative, Somatic Experience, Mindfulness, Parts Work, and incorporate Interpersonal Neurobiology and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy into my work with individuals. I have trained in Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy and find that it is a beautiful and impactful tool to work alongside traditional psychotherapy. I earned a Master’s of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and Substance Use Disorders from Colorado Christian University. I also hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Human Development from Metropolitan State University of Denver.


I offer a therapeutic modality called Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) in
partnership with an organization called Journey Clinical. Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) is a holistic modality in which ketamine is used as a complement to psychotherapy to help eligible patients experience more frequent breakthroughs and sustained improvement in symptoms. I take on the psychotherapy portion of the experience, while Journey Clinical’s medical team supports you on all medical aspects. This includes determining eligibility, developing a custom treatment plan, prescribing the medicine and monitoring outcomes. For more information please contact me and see our KAP page (listed on the top menu bar.)
