Why Aliza Tropper, LMHC chose to be in the helping profession

Helping the underdogs and those in need has always been my calling. I spent my summers in Russia and worked as a counselor in a special needs camp, connecting with people on a personal level. Advocating for positive change became second nature to me, as was portrayed in my roles as a student (president of the student body) and young adult.

My deep-rooted interest in psychology reflects my fascination with understanding the complexities of human behavior. I genuinely believe in the untapped potential that resides within each person. My personal journey involves continuous self-improvement and heightened self-awareness, driven by the conviction that everyone possesses the capacity for healing and reaching their best selves.

This belief isn't just about my own personal growth; it extends to others too. Throughout my life, I've been a source of inspiration and motivation for those around me, encouraging them on their own paths of self-discovery. I find immense joy in motivating others on this transformative journey, fostering a community that believes in the power of becoming the best versions of ourselves.

Aliza Tropper, LMHC's approach

In my practice, I adopt a holistic perspective, integrating various therapeutic modalities such as Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, EMDR, and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (somatic). My overarching objective is to cultivate a robust therapeutic alliance founded on openness, compassion, and acceptance.

Together, we co-create a nurturing and authentic environment—a space where authenticity is celebrated, trust is built, and you are free to explore and embrace your true self. My commitment is to guide you on a journey of self-discovery and growth, enabling you to evolve into the best version of yourself.

At my practice, we also have a very seasoned associate who works with children and adolescents struggling with anxiety,emotion regulation and life transitions. We also run DBT skills Groups for adolescents and adults. Please don't hesitate to reach out to find out more information.

Aliza Tropper, LMHC's experience working with the Jewish community

With over 12 years of therapeutic experience, my professional journey has been deeply intertwined with the Jewish community. I've had the privilege of working in diverse settings within this community, gaining a multifaceted understanding of its nuances and needs. Importantly, my own Jewish identity serves as a compass, informing and enriching my professional practice.

Recognizing the diversity within the Jewish community, I approach my work with mindfulness and sensitivity. It's crucial to me that I take into account the varied experiences and interpretations of those I serve. This commitment ensures that my support is not only informed by my personal connection but is also attuned to the individuality of each person within the vibrant tapestry of the Jewish community.

What my clients have to say about working with me:

  • "I’ve always been really close to my family and after a member of my family wasn’t keeping well, I started having panic attacks. What made the panic attacks worse was that I was all by myself when I started having them. Due to that, I had developed anxiety and fear about having a panic attack. I couldn’t function normally and kept asking myself “what’s wrong with me” “why am I feeling this” and it was kind of like a vicious cycle. I couldn’t accept it and kept checking with myself if I’m doing okay which fed the anxiety more. I felt this way for 5 months until I made the decision to start therapy. It truly changed me and my perspective! Due to therapy, I learnt a new way to comprehend and deal with situations in life. I started consciously observing my thoughts instead of becoming them and letting go of it. It wasn’t fast or easy at all, but slowly it became my natural behavior. I’m doing great now! And even if there are days I’m not doing great, that’s okay too! (That’s the most important thing I learnt in therapy). Thanks to my amazing therapist, Aliza and CBT!"

  • "Aliza really helped me overcome my depression. I had stopped working, exercising and nothing seemed enjoyable. Aliza Pushed me to do things. she didn't give up on me and believed in me. she also gave me a lot of tools to help me during therapy and for my future, so this doesn't happen again. I am currently working full time and I am able to enjoy raising my toddler and spending time with my husband."

  • "My daughter wasn't functioning. Her anxiety was extreme. She refused to go to school. she went to a few other therapists before and nothing seemed to work. we were thinking of not sending her to school anymore. Then my daughter went to Aliza and a couple of months of therapy my daughter was back in school. She is now thriving in school academically and socially."
