Alyssa is a licensed therapist in private practice, with a personal interest in mindfulness.
Alyssa has been integrating mindfulness into her work with children, adolescents and adults for many years. She has seen firsthand the way mindfulness helps her clients to decrease anxiety levels, improve their emotional regulation skills, and helps them focus their attention and cultivate kindness, both inward and outward.
Alyssa plans on using what she has learned in the Mindful Minis Advanced Training to begin forming mindfulness groups for children ages 5 and up.
It is my dream to teach children, through mindfulness, skills that are so important in life: how to be more at ease, conscious and appreciative and accepting of themselves and their emotions.
Habits formed early in life will influence beliefs and behaviors in adulthood and I believe children that practice mindfulness on a regular basis will grow into more happy, content, confident and kind adults.
Having a background in art and art history, I like to teach mindfulness in a playful and creative way.
I am a psychotherapist with a personal interest in mindfulness. Integrating mindfulness into my work with children, adolescents and adults helps them to improve their emotional regulation skills, lowering anxiety & stress and helping to focus attention. My clients learn to observe their feelings and thoughts without judgement. Mindfulness allows for some moments of peace, calm and balance in our busy lives.
