My name is Alyssa Floresca and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). I completed my bachelors in psychology and sociology at Southern Methodist University and my masters in Social Work from University of Texas at Arlington. For the first six years of my career I worked with victims of crime as an advocate and on-scene crisis support with a local law enforcement agency. I then found my passion for working with children and youth who have experienced trauma through being a counselor at the Children’s Advocacy Center for Denton County for four years. I have been a Licensed Masters Social Worker (LMSW) since 2012; and completed the highest level of licensure, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in 2015 at which time, Whole Home Counseling was established.
From my experience I have come to believe that our youngest minds show the greatest strength and resiliency if they simply have an outlet for their emotions and a empathetic guide for how to navigate goals, struggles, triumphs and stress. I practice from a holistic approach that aims to help a client identify and utilize their greatest strengths to achieve wholeness and wellness. Most counseling sessions will utilize components of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with some Solution Focused and Systems Theory approaches. I am certified in Trauma Focused – Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and would be happy to discuss if this modality will help you or your child meet their well-being goals. Together I hope we can bring joy and peace to your home.
When not working with my clients I love spending time with my husband and 2 young children, video gaming, enjoying local restaurants and shops, and watching lots of movies.
