Mental Health Counselor Associate

Monica Alisse is a provider at our Anderson Park clinic who provides therapy services in-person and via telehealth. Monica guides clients in uncovering their true selves and understanding how their past shapes them, empowering them to create positive change. Monica believes that true fulfillment stems from embracing one’s character and personal values that were lost along the way.

With a master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Duquesne University and after earning National Certification (NCC) from the National Board for Certified Counselors, Monica is dedicated to ongoing professional growth, particularly in childhood trauma, narcissistic abuse, relationships, emotional neglect, identity challenges, and neurodivergence. After working at a community health agency serving the LGBTQIA+ community, she acquired an eclectic approach that blends humanistic, holistic, and behavioral methods tailored to individual needs.

With an emphasis on trauma-informed approaches for adults (18+) and utilizing skills in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Gestalt, and Emotionally-Focused Therapy, Monica empowers clients to challenge thought patterns, desensitize anxiety triggers, and reach self-actualization. Her multicultural perspective, fueled by travel experiences and fluency in Spanish and English, fosters cultural integration. Her balance of intuition and knowledge through experience helps her navigate effectively client needs with empathy and insight.

Monica’s blend of creativity and therapy, influenced by her fine arts background, helps her clients visualize long-term goals and themes. Together, we’ll navigate life’s hurdles, nurture growth, and achieve well-being. Believing our responses are shaped by temperament and environment, Monica embraces clients’ unique personalities as they tackle trauma, relationships, careers, and life transitions.

In a warm, collaborative space, Monica uses artistic dialogue and empathic insights, employing customized tools as you work through your mental well-being. Let’s embark on this transformative journey together, tapping into your body’s wisdom and reimagining your life’s direction!
