Dr. Allison Silvers is a licensed clinical psychologist. She earned her doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the University of Hartford after completing an APA-accredited internship. Allison has experience working in a variety of inpatient and outpatient settings providing therapy and conducting psychological assessments.
Allison enjoys working with all ages of adults within individual therapy. Allison’s approach to providing therapeutic services is based on the unique needs of each individual. Making sure therapy is collaborative and growth oriented is important to Allison. Therefore, she utilizes an integrative approach to treatment, with emphasis on person-centered and cognitive behavioral strategies. It is through this combination of therapy approaches that an individual receiving therapy feels heard, understood, and begins to make positive change in thinking and behavioral patterns in daily life. Allison welcomes all individuals, whether it be LGBTQ+ individuals, people of color, or other marginalized groups.
Allison also specializes in psychological testing and assessments, which provide diagnostic clarity and offer insight into what is at the root of mental health symptoms. Psychological assessment can help guide treatment recommendations within medication management or a therapy setting. They can give insight into such areas as cognitive abilities, symptoms, and aspects of personality. For students, often times a picture of an individual's functioning in these areas may open doors for academic accommodations to help the student succeed academically.
