Professional statement

Are you wondering about the next chapter of your life? You could be dealing with a potential move, job transition, difficult relationships, aging related concerns and find yourself putting everyone else first? This may particularly resonate if you’re an active stressed woman in midlife and beyond.

Alyse Parise is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Intentional Creativity Coach in Suffolk County, NY. She guides you to find your center by sparking your creativity and harnessing your lifetime of experience to alleviate symptoms such as anxiety, trauma, sexual abuse, imposter syndrome, and burnout.

Alyse uses her 31 years of experience to suggest which mode of treatment is best for you. That includes psychodynamic therapy, Gestalt Therapy, EMDR, Tapping/EFT, coaching, mindfulness, and creative techniques like drawing.

Alyse believes that healing won’t occur without you finding compassion for yourself. And that includes getting in touch with your mind-body connection so you’re not just a walking head. Then you can combine thinking and feeling, so you can respond and not react.

Client’s describe Alyse as caring, non-judgmental, smart, out of the box, and interactive. She honors each client as the pilot of her own journey. As the Co-pilot, Alyse comes alongside and serves as the co-pilot as she deeply listens to what is said and not said, and provides a safe haven for transformation

Alyse received her MSW from Stony Brook University. She also has extensive experience as a life coach, with a background in Interior Design and business. So, it makes sense that Alyse blends her innate creativity, empathy, and intuition with practical know-how.

Outside of her office, Alyse enjoys walking in nature, singing, gardening, and traveling when the world opens up again.

Alyse offers both in-person and telehealth sessions.

Message to clients

I believe that the first step for healing and transformation is to accept what is.

So often that’s very hard. You want to control, by putting things in neat packages or pushing away what’s upsetting. Do you find that the more you try to control, the more life laughs at you and hands you out of control and conflict?

My role as a therapist and coach is to help you accept yourself and what is. I’m passionate about counseling you through emotional pain and hurt (troubles, trauma, and anxiety). As you accept that you and life are imperfect and filled with uncertainty, then you can find your unique way to more peace, joy, and happiness. And, you’ll discover empowering choices to handle the curveballs that come your way.

If you’re ready to replace bandaids with healing and deep transformation and add a dash of creativity, let’s chat. It would be my honor to be your co-pilot on your sacred, therapeutic journey.
