I’m Dr. Alissa. I have a passion for working with folks who have experienced trauma. My primary modality is EMDR.
Counselor in Nashville, TN
I use an eclectic approach to address trauma in therapy: combining EMDR, narrative therapy, TF-CBT, person centered therapy and other approaches, in order to tailor therapy to the client.
Most of my clientele are women. As a woman, I can relate to issues that are gender specific.
I enjoy helping people cope with trauma reactions as we work to reduce them. I believe PTSD symptoms are a natural reaction to an overwhelming and often unnatural experience and that working to reprocess traumas can often mean working our way out of a PTSD diagnosis.
I have worked with hundreds of clients who have experienced sexual abuse/assault. I have seen countless clients experience complete healing from these violations.
