About Alyssa Edens, MA


I am currently in my third year of clinical experience working under the supervision of Dr. Jinariu. My experience includes working with children and adolescents within multiple settings, including school, in-home services, foster services, and within the office at Therapy SoCal. I am competent in treating trauma, ADHD, self-esteem, anxiety, disruptive behaviors, attachment or adjustment issues, and depression. I am also currently working at a Specialized Foster Care site where I work with clients 18 and under, transitional aged youth, and families. I enjoy providing therapy with faith integration as it provides a look into the client as a whole. I approach treatment from a psychodynamic lens with a systems-based perspective.


Education & Training

I am currently pursuing my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (PsyD) from Azusa Pacific University. I received my Master of Arts (M.A.) in Clinical Psychology from Azusa Pacific University in May 2023 and my Bachelors of Arts (B.A.) in Psychology with a minor in Biblical Studies at Biola University in 2021. Upon the completion of my BA, I worked as an ABA therapist for Autism Learning Partners while applying to graduate school to gain more experience with various aged children and adolescents. I have worked with children and adolescents with various concerns in school-based and community-based settings.


I am trained in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) and The Gottman Method (Level 1 and Level 2).  Additionally, I have training in PCIT, Motivational Interviewing for Substance Abuse, Play Therapy, Child Abuse Assessment and Reporting, and Safety Planning.
