I believe in the power of personal wellness.

Hi! I'm Alison. My work as a therapist is focused on improving the overall well-being of my clients, using evidence-based treatment methods in combination with effective mindfulness techniques. I draw on my academic training and unique professional experiences - elementary education teacher, personal trainer, yoga instructor, meditation coach, licensed psychologist - to develop and implement a personalized treatment plan for you (or your child), based on mutually agreed-upon goals. By approaching your struggles from a personal wellness perspective, we can improve your overall outlook and help to ensure more lasting change, reducing the impact that distress has on your life. It would be my privilege to help you reach your full potential. What would it be like to work with me? < I will provide a warm, welcoming, and confidential environment.> < I will listen attentively to you with non-judgment and empathy, so you feel genuinely respected and accepted.> < I will gather information from you to determine an appropriate clinical diagnosis and formulate a personalized treatment plan.> < I will work with you on building skills/ strategies/ techniques within our sessions and encourage you to complete follow-up tasks on your own.> < I will hold us both accountable to your progress.> I offer consultations at no-charge to ensure we are a good fit before scheduling your first session.
