Professional statement

Alison has over 8 years of experience working with people experiencing a variety of challenges, such as depression, anxiety, relationship issues, grief and loss, and struggles with past trauma. She is primarily relational in her approach, striving to create authentic connections with her clients and foster an atmosphere of safety, openness, trust, and compassion.

Alison believes that human beings have a natural tendency toward health and healing. She offers her clients support and guidance in that process. Alison works primarily with adults, helping them access their own inner wisdom to heal and move through difficult life experiences through an eclectic approach that emphasizes the therapeutic relationship. She incorporates mindfulness, guided meditations, trauma-informed therapies, EMDR, and art therapy. Through these modalities, she works to give her clients unique embodied experiences to help them identify and challenge learned belief systems related to traumas and difficult life experiences. Alison strongly believes that with a calm and regulated nervous system, individuals can attune to their own needs, deepen their understanding of themselves, and address life’s challenges from a place of strength and groundedness.

Currently, Alison is offering sessions via video conference Mondays through Fridays. Alison is based in Trinidad, Colorado, but works with clients from across the state of Colorado.


Message to clients

When we’re hurting or just going through a difficult time, so often we feel alone in our experiences. Depression, anxiety and trauma can narrow our perspectives, making us feel viscerally disconnected from our loved ones and ourselves. In those moments, it can be hard to access our own sense of worth. I welcome all of my clients with unconditional acceptance, no matter what they are going through and or how they are feeling. My intention is always to provide a compassionate, welcoming, nonjudgmental space to help clients reconnect with their own inner strength. My practice is founded in the understanding that, as human beings, we are relational creatures, and healing more readily occurs when we have someone to empathize with us and witness us in our pain and growth. I further work with my clients to identify and challenge limiting beliefs, shift their perspectives, and identify practices for their daily lives to help them release anxiety, mitigate depression, and enhance their sense of well-being.
