About Me

Alyssa Palty, LPC, MC


Quick Glance at the details:

  • Owner and founder of Thriving Life Counseling, PLLC
  • Licensed Professional Counselor in both Arizona and Colorado
  • Bachelors from Colorado State University in 2011
  • Master’s from Arizona State University in 2013
  • Board Member At Large of Mormon Mental Health Association
  • Trained in Somatic Experiencing, Trauma Healing, and CBT

I provide highly trained and specialized care LGBTQIA+, Transgender, Gender expansive and Neuro diverse populations throughout Arizona and Colorado.


I help the LGBTQIA+, Neurodiverse, and Faith transition populations work through their current concerns and come to grow into their best thriving lives.


Over the years I have come to work with hundreds of the loveliest Neurodiverse, queer folks, and post Mormons. These identities intersect a lot.


That doesn’t make me an expert on everyone’s lived experience but that is what drives me to be passionate about being the best therapist I can to these specific and wonderfully unique communities.


I partner through many of the pains and joys with folks in these communities both in my personal life and my professional one.


I partner with my clients in ways that help individuals come into identities that fit best for them and helps them grow to live fulfilling, meaningful lives in their personal identities.


When I’m not in the therapy room I love volunteering with animal rescues. I love being in nature and hiking. I enjoy spoiling my dogs and cuddling them on the couch with a good comedy show or podcast.


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