Alyssa Bray, Intern
I am a full time graduate student at Chestnut Hill College. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Penn State University. For the past year and a half, I have been pursuing a Master’s degree in Clinical and Counseling Psychology, with a concentration in Trauma Studies. It is my goal to become a Licensed Professional Counselor, and to open my own practice. I am currently completing my internship experience, and excited to be here throughout the next couple of semesters.
I believe you are ultimately in charge of the therapeutic process, where I act as a guide or facilitator in assisting you toward positive change. I also believe that your past, or early-life relationships, affect emotions and behaviors in the present. Therefore, my approach toward therapy is mainly psychodynamic, with the therapeutic relationship being a central concept. It is important for me to provide you with a safe environment in order to build a trusting therapeutic relationship, so that you are able to feel comfortable throughout the process.
I am looking forward to meeting you in the near future.
