Alyssa Elgersma

My name is Alyssa Elgersma and I am currently working towards a Clinical Mental Health degree at Adams State University. I chose to go into counseling as a career because I do believe people can overcome their struggles, if they choose, they just need a little guidance.


I grew up in Colorado and moved to Iowa five years ago to be closer to family. I was raised as a first responder's kid and am familiar with direct and vicarious trauma. I have spent time working with those rescued from sex trafficking. I also have a heart for those that have experienced loss, trauma, or adoption as well. I enjoy adolescents, and adults.


In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my two shelties and parents, traveling, and watching TV shows that make me think or make me laugh. Such as BBC Sherlock Holmes and USA Network Psych
