Meet Alyssa

Hi there! I am Alyssa Hickey (she/her).

I understand that on the healing journey the first step is sometimes the hardest. I create a non-judgmental and safe environment that fosters authenticity as we work together. I believe that healing and resiliency come from within, and I work to empower people to find happiness and hope.

I focus on individualized-care by working together with you to promote holistic healing and build resiliency. I value authentic and genuine connections because I believe our most basic need is to connect with others. Through both expression and connection we can create a better understanding of the self.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a DBT Intensively Trained Therapist, through Behavioral Tech, the forefront international DBT training organization.

Following my passions, I am pursuing the Certified Eating Disorder Specialist credential through the International Association for Eating Disorder Professionals (iaedp™), and participate in ongoing Psychodrama training and EMDR consultation groups.

In my free time, I enjoy being in the sun or by the pool, reading books with my cats, Mar and Maggie, and spending time with my friends.
