Under Clinical Supervision

Alyssa Heavens, Marriage and Family Therapist- Limited Permit, P116532 is practicing under the supervision of Caitlyn Pearson (New York, LMFT, 001947) at Clover Marriage & Family Therapy.

Please, note: A clinician listed as being “clinically supervised” is completing clinical hours toward their licensure. They have one or more fully licensed clinical supervisors that often have special training to become supervisors. They consult with their supervisor(s) on all of their cases, which means that, when working with them, you are getting the time and expertise of multiple therapists in your treatment.

What would be important for someone to know about working with you?

Relationships are an essential part of life, whether it be romantic, platonic, familial or the relationship with one's self. At times we may struggle to navigate our relationships in a way that supports our overall health due to depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, history of trauma, workplace stress, etc. Additionally, in certain communities emotional expression may not be welcomed or understood which can put further strain on one's relationships. I believe in collaboration and know that together, we can inspire change in your life. From our sessions, you can expect the use of evidence based therapeutic modalities that support you with feeling more aligned, empower you to lead a fulfilling life, and give you the skills and courage to unlock the best version of yourself. Additionally, we would explore how culture affects your various relationships. My goal is to provide a therapeutic space that is supportive and validating. My ability to empathize and relate to you will offer a safe space to share core values, beliefs and thoughts that contribute to negative interactions with yourself and others. If you struggle internally or within close relationships, reach out today for a free consultation.
