Alisa Hoffman, Ph.D. clinical psychologist

I am a licensed clinical psychologist with over 20 years of experience in private practice.  I help patients through difficult times in their lives and provide a safe place for them to work through issues that seem to be getting in the way of their happiness.  I am an active and involved therapist that engages in discussion and questions, as well as a good listener.  I specialize in adolescents, adults and couples with a particular focus on women's issues.  I have special training in relaxation techniques and guided imagery as well as human sexuality.  


It is my belief that no single theoretical approach is appropriate for every client.  I use a variety of theoretical approaches (Cognitive-Behavioral, Psychodynamic, Family Systems and Mindfulness) depending on the needs and challenges of each individual or couple working with me.
