I teach evidence-based skills that have been shown to support positive outcomes in people living with depression and anxiety. Each lesson is personalized to the students' needs and includes components from empirically supported treatments (e.g. CBT, ACT) and skills (increasing awareness, looking at the whole picture)
I have over 8yrs experience supporting individuals with complex mental health needs, ranging from acquired brain injuries to personality and mood disorders to substance abuse. Depression/anxiety are highly prevelant disorders among many populations including students, working adults, people with disabilities and the elderly

I've known Alyssa for quite some time. Her dedication to acquiring and sharing her knowledge with others is part of her core.
I still fondly remember talking with her about neuroscience many years ago. Always interesting and fun to converse with!
Given her breadth of personal, academic, and professional experience, Alyssa is the perfect person for this. Having personally fought through depression, she approaches these topics from a realistic, grounded framework. During her undergrad, she was published for her personality research. Finally, at work, she helps brain injured folks - a job requiring patience, kindness, and compassion. I can't think of anyone more qualified or experienced.
Knowledgeable, trustworthy, funny and friendly! Knows her subjects, especially enthusiastic about Psych
Also can teach you how to do spinning back elbows and roundhouse kicks... If you were so inclined. Very knowledgeable in the sport of Muay Thai kickboxing!
Alyssa’s dedication to her craft has gone beyond the expectation, she moved her entire life to pursue her career. She is always trying to better herself and help others do the same.
