About Alena Y. N. Gittens

Psychologist, PhD

Sometimes in life we get overwhelmed, feel stuck, and hopeless. Sometimes it can feel as though things keep piling up against us and it can be hard to feel complete. Some people may experience this emotionally, others more physically. Different things trigger these responses in us and make it hard for us to thrive. Whether it is the pandemic, trauma, depression, anxiety, family or relational conflict, self-esteem issues, racial injustice, or grief, having an outlet to make space for this discomfort can help alleviate the pain and move you towards a place of healing.

As a Black, queer, immigrant clinical psychologist I have a deep understanding and appreciation for those who struggle to survive. My clinical training and experiences have focused on individuals with chronic and complex issues. I utilize a trauma-informed integrative strengths-based treatment approach based on various evidenced based practices.

It would be an honor and a joy to help you on your journey. Feel free to contact me here through psychology today or via my practice’s website below. I look forward to speaking with you soon!
