Qualifications and Experience
We each represent an important story. Sometimes when we experience pain, hardship, loss, worry, or sadness, the story gets away from us. We lose control of the narrative. We lose touch with our sense of self. My goal in therapy is to create a safe space where you are able to gain insight into your own experiences and regain that control. You own your own story. I take an integral, holistic approach to psychotherapy. My therapeutic style is empathetic, reflective, empowering, and real. I recognize the profound impact of the mind-body connection, and I often incorporate this into my work. I earned my undergraduate degree from Northeastern University and my Master’s Degree from New York University, where I specialized in course work on couples therapy, sex therapy, trauma work, and mindfulness-based treatment. I have experience engaging in culturally sensitive work with children, adolescents, and adults. I am available to provide individual, couples, and family therapy to support the treatment of relational issues, anxiety, depression, impulse-control, trauma, grief, and loss. Congratulations on this act of courage. You are taking an important step toward growth, healing, and change.

Alana is a wonderful listener. She has a positive aura and makes you instantly feel comfortable to speak. Her office sent out a thorough document, prior to our meeting so i knew what to expect and understand her method of approach. I am very happy I chose her. I look forward to how this will work.
Very helpful, Alana was kind, attentive, and really considered one's individual needs. All in all highly recommend
Very easy to talk to and welcoming. She was incredibly supportive and I will be visiting her again.
So far so good. I really appreciated her feedback and her tone of voice was very calm and it helped me relax. I was very tense going in and stressed out and full of anxiety but I think talking to her will help me in the long run.
This was my first time seeing a therapist and it was nerve wrecking. Alana was a professional and very understanding. If anyone is going through a situation and needs to talk, Alana is the perfect choice.
I greatly enjoyed my visit and found Alana to be insightful, caring, and perceptive. The sessions allow me to be heard and understood while also challenging me to think in new and productive ways. Though I have not been meeting with her long, I have found our time to fulfill my hopes of what I might gain from therapy and look forward to continuing our work.
