Professional statement

Alise has wide-ranging experiences in the mental health field. It has allowed her to identify the populations she works best with and pursue the appropriate training to guide her work. The clients’ Alise serves are typically adults, 21 and older, seeking to improve their ability to cope with stressors, improve relationships, self-esteem and/or sexual functioning. More specifically, her clients' experience depression, anxiety, sexual interest/arousal disorders, erectile dysfunction or out of control sexual behaviors. Furthermore, she has spent several years aiding both perpetrators and survivors of domestic violence.

Alises' main approach is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). She truly believes that what we think impacts how we feel, which impacts what we do. Her goal is to aid clients’ in feeling empowered enough to take control over their life and circumstances, which starts with managing thoughts. Alise also utilizes motivational interviewing which focuses on identifying your reasons for adhering to the change you desire. When aiding couples, she utilizes the research made available from the Gottman Institute to understand and address barriers to healthy functioning and interactions. Similarly, Alise utilizes the research regarding sex and sexuality to help clients identify what their healthy functioning looks like.

As previously mentioned, Alise has worked in a variety of settings so her education consists of classroom, research and real-world application of concepts. Alise is a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional and has been trained in EMDR, DBT, batterers intervention facilitation, domestic violence counseling and is pursuing a certification in sex therapy.

At this time all sessions are facilitated via telehealth. It is helpful to have a ten minute phone consultation prior to scheduling an intake session so questions can be answered and resolved leaving more time for the intake assessment process.


Message to clients

My goal is to help clients’ feel empowered. What you need for emotional and behavioral change, you already possess however life circumstances can cause us to lose sight of that. Our work together will require you to consider what works best for you and what you can sustain rather than what you think others’ wants to see from you.

If you are looking for someone to just listen that is an option. However most of my clients are seeking to learn and practice skills to make changes in their life. It is important to remember that a therapy session is only 53 minutes so the real work is done outside of the session. Therefore, I often assign homework which consists of worksheets, observations and skill implementation so you can see the change you desire.

Most importantly, the counseling session is your safe space. This means you are responsible for being honest and providing feedback about what is and isn’t working for you. I come to sessions with an idea but since you are a unique individual we need to tailor that idea to fit you.
