Professional statement

Alison Heiser is a therapist whose ideal client is someone who is ready to commit to their growth and well-being, someone who wants to be engaged in the therapeutic process. She works collaboratively with you to set goals and discover what you would like to accomplish with your time in therapy.

The majority of her clientele are women aged 18 - 65 who are looking to: heal from trauma, find that perfect relationship - or heal the one they are in - navigate a tough transition, forge a new identity at any point in life, or learn how to manage uncomfortable feelings like grief, anxiety, anger, and low self-esteem.

Alison's approach combines several different modalities. Her overall approach is psychodynamic. Within that theory, she works in the modalities of CBT (Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy), Solution-Focused, Existential, and Mindfulness. At the same time, if there is acute or long-standing trauma, or attachment issues, she weaves in the somatic (body) work of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and Hakomi, focusing on the felt sense of the body’s organization of experience in the present moment. Additionally, a Buddhist perspective often informs her work.

Alison is seeing clients in-person one day a week and working virtually four days a week. Remotely, she sees clients via Doxy, a secure, HIPAA-compliant video platform.


Message to clients

I am passionate about the growth of the human being. Each of us is constantly changing and growing. I love helping people discover their highest creative potential, whatever form that takes. Effective therapy can help you grow in the direction of your best and highest good. You might have been abused, ignored, devalued or invalidated. You forgot what you wanted to be when you grew up. You might feel overwhelmed by anger, resentment, or confusion, or that you have lost your way. I work holistically - integrating mind, body and spirit. When all three are working in a balanced way, you are once again in touch with the real, authentic being that you were meant to be. My hope for you is that you can discover how to live and move from that place, what I call your stillpoint, so that you can express your highest creative Self in the world.
