Alyssa Earlen received her Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Rider University, and her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Rowan University. Alyssa completed her clinical internship at Bucks Support Services, where she provided individual counseling to children, adolescents, and adults experiencing eating disorders, depression, anxiety, self-esteem issues, emotional dysregulation, and more.
Alyssa’s therapeutic style involves an eclectic approach. While providing empathy, she often draws concepts from Person Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), but will always meet her clients where they are by utilizing the most appropriate techniques. Alyssa views counseling as a collaborative, on-going process in which she assists clients in creating positive change and growth while also recognizing their personal strengths.
Alyssa strives to help clients feel comfortable and safe during their therapy sessions by remaining genuine, nonjudgmental, and client-centered, as she believes the therapeutic relationship plays a significant role in counseling. Alyssa is passionate about helping individuals who struggle with self-esteem, body image concerns, and eating disorders. Alyssa believes that working from a body neutrality perspective promotes self-acceptance and a deeper appreciation of what our bodies allow us to do, which facilitates healing. Additionally, Alyssa enjoys working with children who struggle with emotional and behavioral concerns, assisting them in identifying their feelings, regulating their emotions, and learning adaptive behaviors.
Hi! Thank you for visiting my page. Helping individuals through their life journey is something I am very passionate about as a counselor, but I also have other interests that occupy my time when I’m not at work. You’ll often find me spending time with my loved ones, staying active, being in nature, or engaging in some other type of self-care. At the end of every day, I like to take time to myself to relax and decompress by listening to music.
