About Me



My name is Alyssa Palty and I am the owner and founder of Thriving Life Counseling, PLLC. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Arizona and a Nationally Certified Counselor. I attended Colorado State University and received a Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology and minor in Business Administration. I went on to follow my passion for healing and earned my Master’s of Counseling from Arizona State University. I’m a member of American Counseling Associations Division for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Issues. I am also a member of the Mormon Mental Health Association. As a MMHA provider I “Treat and educate Mormons self-identifying in any manner of religious belief or non-belief, sexual orientation or preference, gender identity, or any other area they may find themselves in, through an evidence-based, best-practice approach consistent with professional ethics first and foremost..” -MMHA, http://www.mormonmentalhealthassoc.org/

I have a vast array of experience working with children, families, couples, groups, and individuals. I specialize in mental health therapy for adults and young adults experiencing faith transitions, spiritual journeys, professional burnout and compassion fatigue, those in the LGBT+ community.

My other life passions include my adorable dogs, Enzo and Kylo, fostering dogs for an Australian Shepard Rescue, hiking in the sunshine, traveling to explore new places in the world, curling up with a good book, running on dirt roads, yoga (seriously, try goat yoga), and good food that feeds the stomach and the soul.

I’m looking forward to helping you achieve your thriving life.
