Meet Alysha Aiello

Hi! My name is Alysha Aiello (she/her), I am a licensed clinical social worker specializing in working with queer and trans teens and adults. While I do specialize in the LGBTQ+ population, I take great pride in supporting individuals from all walks of life and backgrounds. I work with teens and adult clients with depression, anxiety, trauma, school and work issues, life changes and transitions, sexual trauma and abuse. As well as folks with attachment issues, highly sensitive persons, the sex-positive community, and neurodivergent individuals.

 

What does a typical session with you look like?

I believe there is no “one size fits all” approach to therapy, meaning I tailor my approach and our session to your needs while maintaining a non-judgmental and empathetic stance. Regardless of the client, the session is designed to be nonjudgmental, empathetic, and filled with compassion with an invitation to lean into the discomfort of growth, and provide a safe space for you to show up as authentically you.
 

If you hadn’t become a therapist, what profession would you have chosen and why?

I would probably like to open a coffee shop or little bakery (maybe a bakery/coffee shop combo?). I enjoy baking and making treats for the people in my life. I think it is a fun way to show people some love. Besides liking coffee, I love the atmosphere of a good coffee shop. I like the idea of a safe and cozy space for people to socialize with their friends/loved ones or spend some alone time reading or working, while enjoying some good coffee and a treat.
 

How would you describe your therapeutic style?

I believe that a successful therapeutic relationship comes from collaboration, mutual respect, and authenticity. In my practice, I show up as authentically myself and I want to provide a space for you to feel comfortable doing the same. I bring a blend of empathy, humor, curiosity and knowledge to the therapeutic process. Therapy should be a place where you feel heard, seen, understood, and supported. It is my goal to provide this understanding and support for you through creating a safe, collaborative, affirming space to assist you in growth and healing. Your values, identity, interests, culture and experiences are important to me and will be included, accepted and praised in therapy with me.

Therapy Styles

Short Term (Solution-focused, etc.) 
Ideal for those who are coming in with a specific problem they’d like to address and gain clarity on. Typically, short term therapies are present focused and do not dive deep into your past.

Structured
Structured therapies are goal and progress oriented. Therapists may incorporate psychoeducation and a specific “curriculum.” In order to stay on track, therapists may provide worksheets and homework.

Insight-oriented (Psychodynamic, Existential, etc.) 
Exploring the past and making connections to present issues can help clients gain insight. Getting to the root of the issue and finding deeper self-awareness can help with long-term change.

Non-directive (Humanistic, Person-centered, etc.)
Going with the flow and seeing where it leads.

Behavioral (CBT, DBT, etc.)
Focuses on changing potentially unhealthy or self-destructive behaviors by addressing problematic thought patterns and specific providing coping skills.

Trauma Focused (EMDR, TF-CBT, etc.)
Recognizing the connection between trauma experiences and your emotional and behavioral responses, trauma focused therapy seeks to help you heal from traumas.
