Alyssa is a doctoral candidate in Loyola’s Psy.D. program. Originally from New Jersey, Alyssa earned her B.A. in Psychology (with minors in sociology and Forensic Studies), from Loyola in 2014. During her undergraduate career, Alyssa coordinated the service program with Refugee Youth Projection and Soccer Without Borders through the Center for Community Service and Justice, which furthered her interests in psychology and working with marginalized populations. “Clinical psychology seemed like the right path for me, because it gave me the opportunity to work one-on-one with individuals who were facing different challenges in their lives, to further pursue advocacy and social justice work, and to supervise and mentor trainees in psychology.” Alyssa plans to work as a licensed psychologist in a college counseling center, conducting psycho-educational assessments in a private practice setting, working closely with the LGBTQIA+ community through both advocacy and clinical work, teaching undergraduate and graduate courses, and supervising and mentoring trainees. She has accepted a postdoctoral fellowship position at the University of Delaware’s center for counseling and student development, where she will be serving the mental health needs of the students at the university, specializing in supervision and training and working with the LGBTQ+ population, after she completes her program in May.

My time here has allowed me to learn more about myself personally and professionally, and about the importance of using self-reflection and self-awareness in my work as a clinician. I think it is a unique focus of a Loyola education that has made me a much stronger clinician.
