Alyssa Hackett, M.A., AMFT


Alyssa's journey into mental health advocacy began at Loyola Marymount University, where she earned her BA in sociology. Driven by a passion for understanding human behavior and societal dynamics, she continued her academic pursuit at Antioch University, obtaining a master’s degree in clinical psychology with a specialization in Addiction and Recovery.

During her graduate studies, Alyssa's commitment to breaking down barriers to mental health care led her to Antioch Community Therapy Services (ACTS), where she provided invaluable telehealth services to underserved individuals facing economic hardships during the Covid-19 pandemic. Her dedication to ensuring access to mental health services for all has been a driving force throughout her career.

Alyssa's therapeutic approach is grounded in cognitive-behavioral therapy, aimed at empowering clients to cultivate healthier thought patterns and behaviors. Her expertise extends to trauma-focused cognitive-behavioral therapy (TF-CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), providing her clients with comprehensive support on their healing journey.

Specializing in working with adults grappling with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), ADHD, and substance use disorders, Alyssa creates a safe and non-judgmental space for clients to explore and address their challenges. She firmly believes that empathy and understanding are the cornerstones of effective therapy, adopting a client-centered approach that prioritizes authentic connection and genuine support.

For Alyssa, therapy is not just about providing guidance; it's about truly seeing, hearing, and understanding each individual she works with. Her warmth and empathetic nature foster an environment where clients feel empowered to express themselves fully and authentically.
