Alysa Ain – Washington, D.C. Psychotherapist


Alysa’s Psychotherapy Approach

Therapy for self-discovery and transformation

Specialized in therapy for Laywers and Business Professionals

Therapy is a creative space where we collaborate to help you discover what you need to live a satisfying, joyful life, and develop the freedom and courage to make choices that honor these needs.

As a former corporate lawyer, I have a special interest in working with professionals (particularly lawyers!) feeling stressed and stuck in their careers. I also love working with anyone else urgently asking: what am I doing with my life?

Our Work Together

My approach is deeply empathic, psychodynamic, and relational. We will explore how your past experiences influence your emotions and beliefs. We will also cultivate radical attention to what is present now.

Guided by your individual process of growth and healing, we may integrate mindfulness practices, or somatic interventions that work directly with patterns in your nervous system. Our purpose together is to make it more and more possible for you to know, express, and actualize what you truly desire.

Contact and More Info

You can contact me by email or by phone (202) 630-8120. I do my best to return all inquiries within 24 hours.

Experience and Education

In addition to the work described above, I have experience providing trauma-informed, LGBTQ+affirming, and culturally responsive therapy around:

  • Depression and anxiety
  • Loss and grief
  • Racial trauma and racial identity issues
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Family stressors
  • Trauma-related disorders
  • Life transitions
