Alessia Caputo is a Clinical Associate and Registered Psychotherapist who provides psychotherapy and psychological services to adolescents and adults under the supervision of Dr. Taslim Alani-Verjee at Silm Centre for Mental Health. She previously worked in case management before pursuing a graduate degree in psychology, and believes this has deepened her understanding of systemic issues in navigating the mental health system and incorporates this knowledge into her work with her clients. She is also a Non-Insured Health Benefits (NIHB) provider.
Alessia works with individuals affected by mental health disorders, with a particular interest in supporting those dealing with anxiety, addiction, trauma/PTSD, and ADHD. She practices from a trauma-informed and anti-oppressive approach and integrates the modalities of Internal Family Systems (IFS) Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT). Alessia believes that providing safety and having a strong therapeutic alliance is crucial when working with her clients, and she works to provide them with unconditional positive regard.
