Therapy Sessions Alyssa Kushner Practice Description
Have you ever found yourself putting other peoples needs above your own? Struggling to regulate your emotions? Feeling anxious when you set boundaries? Put unrealistic and high expectations on yourself? Or have a loud inner-critic telling you you are not enough? If any of these apply to you, I am here to support. I specialize in working with teens, young adults, and adults with relational and complex trauma, anxiety, codependency, people pleasing, and self worth. Through trauma informed, somatic, and holistic approaches I aim to guide my clients in healing from the past, creating meaningful change in the present, learning to manage difficult emotions and anxiety, and become more authentic, confident versions of themselves. We will develop your mind-body connection, tap into your intuition and strengths, and learn how to start being kinder to yourself and put your needs first. I provide virtual individual, group, and family therapy and will always prioritize creating a safe and trusting relationship first.
