Professional statement

Alison helps young adults in their 20s and 30s navigate difficult emotions and life transitions. She specializes in anxiety, depression, and borderline personality disorder. Her ultimate goal as your therapist is to remind you of your inner resilience, prep you with effective tools and coping skills, and empower you to feel more 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 the evidence-based therapies cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT). Additionally, Alison is a certified yoga teacher and enjoys using mindfulness exercises to help her clients cultivate more presence and clarity. 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

You are resilient. More than you know. And the fact that you are reading this profile right now is proof of that. 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!
