Hello, my name is Alanna and I wanted to welcome you to the beginning of your therapeutic journey. I believe in an individualistic approach and use of one’s culture, identity, and life experience as the foundation for treatment. We will work as a team to accomplish your goals in each therapy session. I will work to make sure our sessions have an environment made up of mutual respect, feelings of safety, and a room where you always feel heard; the building blocks that allow for growth.
I am passionate about working with clients of all ages; helping clients with bipolar, anxiety, depression, ADD/ADHD, self-esteem, struggles with gender identity, managing overwhelming emotions, adjusting black and white thinking, helping with behavioral issues, and coping with grief & end of life.
Alanna has a bachelor’s degree in Psychology through University of South Florida and is currently a Clinical Mental Health Counselor Intern in the end stages of her master’s degree at Hodges University. She is under the direct clinical supervision of Janean Byrne who is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Florida #MH15525.
