I will meet you where you are and offer support and understanding. This may be a new process for you, and there may be some uncomfortable and difficult things we have to work through, but there is hope. You can manage your symptoms so they aren't so impactful in your life. Outside of work, I love crafting, drawing, and painting, and caring for my plants.

We're starting this journey together, and we're here to learn together. Let's identify the goals you'd like to reach and the areas you'll want to work on. Therapy is definitely a learning experience, but it's worth it in the end.

Alyssa worked with me through my ocd fears and obsessions without judgement; rather she always knew exactly what types of exposures would work and was able to help guide, teach and give me tools that have made my ocd finally manageable. I can’t thank her enough

Great first session


Mar 21, 2023

So grateful and blessed to have Alyssa Cruz as my therapist on this journey of healing and growing. Trust came naturally with her as she immediately demonstrated kindness and compassion. I feel completely at ease having difficult conversations with her. It’s nice to be heard, I know that she genuinely cares and I know that she interprets what I’m saying, and how I’m feeling without judgement and while being vulnerable doesn’t come easy for me, but I know I’m in a safe space. I couldn’t have asked for a better therapist.
