Meet The Founder

Alyse November, LCSW, a licensed clinical social worker has extensive experience in working with a variety of populations in the fields of counseling, bullying and advocacy. The decision to open Different Like Me, Inc. over ten years ago arose from a passion for helping people. In 2004 when Different Like Me, Inc. opened, the major focus of the company was on bullying prevention. Alyse developed a bullying prevention program that ran in the Palm Beach County schools. More recently, Alyse has recognized the need for bullying prevention that focuses on the needs of adults and seniors. Out of this need interactive programs were developed focusing on reducing bullying among adults in the work-place and in senior residential communities.

In 2007 the company incorporated counseling/psychotherapy for children, adults and seniors into the services provided by Different Like Me, Inc. The company offers in-office and in-home counseling services for the convenience of its clients.

Different Like Me, Inc. also offers advocacy services for children with special needs and their parents. In addition to her many years of working in this field, Alyse has a unique perspective on this issue having two special needs children of her own.
