About Alyssa Norbeck
Do you feel overwhelmed, anxious, or on edge? Are your usual coping skills no longer working for you?
Alyssa is here to support you!
Alyssa grew up in the Northwest suburbs and understands the pressures and anxieties that everyday life can bring. As a Certified Clinical Anxiety Treatment Professional, Alyssa has extensive training in treating panic disorder, specific phobias, generalized anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, depression, and more. She is also a member of the Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA). Alyssa is passionate about helping tweens, teens, and adults live well with anxiety and depression.
She also is skilled in supporting adolescents and adults who may be struggling with trauma, substance use/addictions, stress management, life transitions, self-esteem/confidence building, and relational issues.
Alyssa obtained her Master’s Degree in Social Work at the University of Southern California. She has worked with a variety of age groups presenting with a range of clinical issues in individual and group settings. She has worked with clients in private practice, mental health and substance use intensive outpatient programs (IOP), crisis management and stabilization, and in skilled nursing facilities/long term care. Alyssa also enjoys supporting college students and has experience with leading a small group of college females to help them process life’s stressors and progress spiritually, emotionally, and relationally.
She utilizes a wide variety of techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectic Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Exposure and Response Prevention. She recognizes that therapy is not “one size fits all”, and is excited to partner with you to meet your individualized goals.
Alyssa understands that it can feel vulnerable and intimidating to begin therapy, but she is passionate about making therapy a safe space where you can feel heard and understood. Her therapeutic style is empathetic, nonjudgemental, creative, and individualized.
Alyssa fully believes in the progress, not perfection model at Nikkie Evans PLLC. She understands that progress is not linear, and change can be difficult. She hopes to work with you to make the desired changes in your life and/or to better cope with life’s stressors.
Her personal faith and spiritual journey also allow her to provide faith-based counseling to clients. (Note: We are proud to serve ALL faiths at Nikkie Evans PLLC. We respect all beliefs and only offer faith-based counseling upon request.)
In her spare time, Alyssa enjoys spending time with her family, friends, and dog, as well as gardening, baking, crafting, and kayaking.
