Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
A holistic approach to well-being, Somatic Psychotherapy includes emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual dimensions of experience. Whether you are struggling with difficult feelings, trying to heal from the past, or things are OK and you simply want to grow personally, one-on-one sessions with Alissa can guide and support you in having a more fulfilling experience of life. People often say they want to “control” their emotions. What if, instead of controlling or suppressing your emotions, you could come into relationship with them in a way that allows them transform naturally, to release old patterns and unleash the joy and energy that they have been holding back? Investing in your emotional well-being is investing in the quality of your experience of the rest of your life. Learning to live mindfully allows you to respond to ever-changing outer circumstances with more confidence, clarity, and inner peace. In addition to using traditional therapeutic methods, Somatic Psychotherapy recognizes the importance of developing new neural pathways and re-programing the nervous system in order to transform the actual lived experience of emotions on a day-to-day basis. You don’t need any special background or skill to try, just an open mind! Alissa offers a safe and nonjudgmental environment. She can gently guide you in developing compassion, curiosity, mindfulness, and body-awareness. You will develop new neural pathways that allow you to handle emotions and challenging situations more gracefully, cultivate deeper presence, and connect with your inner guidance.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Glendora, CA

Are you stressed out? Do you sometimes find yourself snapping at your children? Would you describe your relationship with your husband as “distant”? Or do you feel like you are going to lose it if someone doesn’t give you a break? Being a mother, wife, or daughter can stretch us to our limits. During times like these it can feel like the world has been turned “upside down”. There is HOPE! You don’t have to figure this out alone. Let’s talk and see if I can help you make things “right side up” again.
