Alise Lindsey, LPC

Counseling is a safe space to be your authentic self. It is an opportunity to enhance the skills you desire to improve your overall wellbeing and relationships with others. When working with me, you will understand you are control of the process and my role is to facilitate progress. Ultimately, counseling is about you; your needs, your style of learning and growth. After our work together, you will be empowered, aware and capable of maintaining your emotional and social wellbeing.

I utilize a CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) approach, aiding you in understanding how your thoughts impact your feelings and actions. Once you are able to understand the rogue messages your brain sends based upon past negative life experiences, you will be better able to control them. I also utilize a person-centered approach, meeting you where you are; meaning we engage in activities and address concerns at a pace that is meant to help you, rather than overwhelm you. Although CBT is my preferred approach, I utilize interventions from other theories that prove useful, as my purpose is to help you improve, therefore, I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional and trained in EMDR.

I have over 15 years of professional experience in the mental health field. My professional experience has been diverse, allowing me first-hand experience with the courts, social services, foster care, community-based counseling, therapeutic day treatment counseling, inpatient, domestic violence and sexual assault survivors and perpetrators, substance abuse counseling and mental health evaluations. When I’m not working, I enjoy reading with my book club, writing, listening to music, going to concerts and traveling with my family and friends.

Christina Triantafillou, LPC

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with over seven years of experience in the field. I have worked with adults, children, adolescents, and families. When I began my Master’s program in counseling in 2011, I quickly discovered that this was the field I wanted to be in for the rest of my life. I believe that above all, counseling requires a solid relational foundation to promote change. It is my job to help you see the best in yourself, to take an honest look at what could help, and then to help equip you with the tools needed to see positive change in your life. I take this job seriously and strive to be the best I can every day to help others on their journey. 

I have experience providing counseling in a variety of settings including in-home counseling, outpatient offices, women’s shelters, public school, and universities. I am trained in the use of trauma-informed care, which gives me a solid understanding of how trauma can impact the way you view the world around you and communicate with others. I use this in much of my therapy practice, as well as Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, and Family Systems Therapy. I am also trained in Motivational Interviewing, which focuses primarily on addiction concerns. 

I have experience in helping individuals/families with: 

  • Trauma/Abuse
  • Anxiety/Panic 
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
  • Depression
  • Attachment Disorders
  • Borderline Personality Disorder
  • Psychosis and Psychotic Disorders
  • Domestic Violence 
  • Divorce and Custody 
  • LGBTQ+  Concerns
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Addictions and Substance Abuse
  • Self-Esteem 
  • Adolescent Concerns 
  • Grief/Loss
  • Multicultural and Minority Concerns
  • Anger Management
  • Relationship Issues 
  • Self-Harm/Thoughts of Suicide

This list is not exhaustive and I always believe in growing and learning more about how to help others.
