She/Her Pronouns

Hi there! Welcome to my practice, True Roots Therapy.

My name is Alyssa and I am a Registered Psychotherapist (RP) providing both individual and couples therapy from a trauma-informed approach.

I know when finding a therapist, there are often many approaches and theories to take in, and a lot of questions around where to start. I can understand that at times, finding the right therapist can be an overwhelming process. My hope is to make this process just a little bit easier, which is why I offer free 15-20 minute phone consultations. This is a chance to get to know each other better, and for you to ask any and all questions you may have about myself, my approach or therapy in general.

My approach includes:

  • Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT)
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
  • Trauma-Informed Somatic Therapy
  • Narrative Therapy
  • Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)
  • Art Therapy

My areas of focus include:

  • Trauma (Adult Survivors of Sexual Abuse)
  • Anxiety & Panic Attacks
  • Self-Esteem/Body Image
  • Depression
  • Relationship Issues
  • Self-Harm
  • Stress Reduction and Burn out

When I am working with clients, I typically adapt my approach depending on the needs of individual, or couple sitting in front of me. My main priority is that no matter who I am working with, therapy is taking place in a space where you feel heard, seen and validated. I work from a client-centered approach which means therapy is taken at a pace that feels comfortable for you.

When I started my practice, True Roots Therapy in early 2021 we were in the midst of a global pandemic. I could feel the need for empathy, kindness and validation more than ever, and I made it a goal of mine to ensure that support was available for those who needed it. I have always believed that therapy should be accessible for everyone and anyone, which is why I offer sliding scale rates. For more information or resources, please feel free to reach out. My rates are $140 per hour and $160 for couples, with a few sliding scale spots available. I am working in person flexibly at The Healing Collective and virtually, so if you have a preference, please let me know.
