"Life begins at the end of your comfort zone"

Alissa Sanzone, lcsw


all about alissa

Alissa has a natural ability to bring a sense of ease to those around her. With a compassionate and friendly demeanor, Alissa creates a space for clients to share whatever is on their minds and in their hearts. In working with Alissa, clients will be able to positively transform their relationships with themselves and others by focusing on self-empowerment and building self-esteem. When her clients need support, they know they can always count on her. 

From adjusting to life transitions, to managing dating and relationships, to coping with anxiety or depression, Alissa believes that therapy is the most important investment clients can make in themselves. Through her direct and authentic style, Alissa works hand-in-hand with clients to explore and repair patterns that have left them feeling stuck or unfulfilled. Clients have shared that when working with Alissa, they have gained clarity and confidence in their ability to navigate through life. 

how she works

Having spent a meaningful part of her career in the medical field, Alissa focuses her work on helping clients identify and learn how to utilize healthy coping mechanisms for various stressors, including adjusting to life transitions and navigating complex relationships. With a humanistic and individualized approach, Alissa creates an environment where clients can be vulnerable, while also challenging them to break through the barriers that prevent them from being the best version of themselves. 

In their work with Alissa, clients gain a deeper understanding of who they are and gain clarity on what may be missing from feeling fulfilled in life. Clients are able to develop long lasting growth by identifying thoughts and behaviors that are no longer serving them and refocusing their energy to what brings them joy. 

Drawing from therapeutic techniques including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic, Mindfulness, and Solution-Focused Therapy, Alissa uses a holistic approach to help clients discover and work towards their goals in creating a life they have always desired. In working with Alissa, clients leave sessions with a more positive-self image as well as feeling more grounded and confident.
