Professional statement

Alison helps young adults in their 20s and 30s navigate difficult emotions and life transitions. She specializes in anxiety and panic disorder. Her ultimate goal as your therapist is to reflect your inner resilience and wisdom, equip you with effective tools and coping skills, and empower you to feel both more in control and also at peace with the inevitable ebbs and flows of life.

Alison takes a holistic approach to therapy, meaning she considers all aspects of your well-being: mind, body, and spirit. She uses dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), and mindfulness techniques, as these have all been proven to be effective in treating anxiety and depression. She also enjoys using internal family systems (IFS) as this helps to gain a deeper understanding of yourself and why you feel the way you do, as well as foster self-compassion. She's very down-to-earth and will never tell you what to do; rather, she gets very curious and asks lots of questions to better understand YOUR truth and what you ultimately want for your future.

Alison offers virtual (video) sessions and can accommodate weekly or biweekly sessions, depending on your needs and what works best for your schedule. If you think Alison may be a good fit for your therapy goals, please feel free to contact her to schedule a free phone consultation!


Message to clients

If you are reading this right now, you have already taken a very important step towards your healing. You are exploring ways to take care of yourself, and how you can be supported along the way. We all need support sometimes, and I want to assure you this makes you human! As a fellow human, and therapist, I strive to create a warm and welcoming space for you to explore, heal, and grow into a more aligned and authentic version of yourself.

I love this quote by Pema Chödrön: "The healing comes from letting there be room for all of this to happen: room for grief, for relief, for misery, for joy." My promise to you is to hold space for it all, while providing empathy, insight, and support. I am a very collaborative therapist and will see us as a team working towards your goals, whatever they may be.

If you're feeling stuck in your emotions or situation, please know that you don't have to go it alone. If you think I'd be a good fit for you, please feel free to reach out to schedule a free phone consultation. I would be honored to connect with you!
