Hello I am Dr. Heather Alesch. I use an integrative approach to therapy with an emphasis on building a strong rapport with my clients. My unique skill set, being both a clinical and school psychologist, provides for a distinctive perspective on child and adolescent mental health. Positivity, laughter, music, and creativity are essential elements of my practice. I enjoy helping my clients to identify strengths while expressing difficulties through modalities that fit their abilities and preferences. Understanding the family system is an essential part of serving my clients. I utilize play therapy and the expressive arts.
I have over 10 years of experience serving children and adolescents in community based programs, group homes, alcohol and drug treatment, hospital and juvenile detention settings. I have also provided services for multiple school districts in San Diego County.
I concentrate primarily on individual and group therapy with children, adolescents, and young adults. By request, I am available for comprehensive academic and psychological assessment services, consultation regarding the IEP and 504 processes, and school-based services.
