Alisashie Amie Nutakor, LMSW

Alisashie Amie Nutakor is a Licensed Master of Social Work (LMSW), who has been providing mental health services in Brooklyn for over a decade. Alisa treats individuals, couples and families utilizing intentional, holistic, cognitive and neuroscience based therapeutic strategies to support and help her clients. She specializes in early attachment trauma, domestic violence, career counseling, eating disorders, stress, anxiety, depression, and the pre- and post-natal experience.

Alisa recognizes that everyone’s journey to therapy is driven by their unique story and has developed a therapeutic practice that is adaptive to people’s range of backgrounds and needs. Her style is empathetic and down-to-earth, enabling her to create an accessible environment for all of her clients, including individuals who are new to therapy.

Alisa is particularly interested in disrupting maladaptive family cycles and patterns and understands that breaking free of these cycles — rooted in everything from trauma and systemic oppression to the demands of navigating the modern world and family dynamics — is both deeply inspiring and also feasible. Bearing witness to this transformative change in her client’s lives is one of her greatest honors.
