My Story

Exceeding Expectations One Patient at a Time

I’m Aliza Tropper LMHC, a licensed Psychotherapist with over 10 years of experience. I am here to guide you through life’s challenges and help you become the best version of yourself. I truly care about my clients’ well-being and strongly believe in the human potential. I personalize cutting-edge evidenced-based treatment strategies to help you create lasting, meaningful change in line with your personal values. 

I have worked with diverse populations over the years, including early childhood, adolescents,  parents, couples and adults for those struggling with anxiety, OCD, depression, trauma, life transitions, relationship challenges and emotion regulation difficulties. I believe in the balance of both acceptance and change.

I take a holistic approach with my clients and incorporate aspects of Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, EMDR and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (somatic). My goal is to develop a strong therapeutic relationship that is based on openness, compassion and acceptance.

 We create a warm, genuine, trusting space where you can be your true self and become the best version of you.
