Alissa Yamasaki

Ayama Psychotherapy LLC

Having had a busy practice as a psychologist since 2008, Alissa realized that she could only help as many people as she had hours in the day. Rather than be limited, she opened Ayama Psychotherapy LLC in 2016. The business reflects her value in intentional practices, compassion and appreciation of overall health.


Ayama is a forward-thinking group practice specializing in helping people with anxiety, life stress and insomnia. Therapies used are up-to-date and address individual needs, while drawing heavily from empirical evidence of what works.

 

When she’s not in a therapy room with a client, you can find Alissa mentoring interns, consulting with other professionals or just taking time to breathe and hang out with her family. Her favorite thing to do is share a laugh with others.
