Announcement icon During this public health crisis, I will be offering sessions via Zoom, FaceTime and phone. It's important to reach out for support and help
In times of transition life can be complicated and it may be difficult to make the best choices or decisions. A warm, experienced and compassionate psychotherapist can help guide you though these times. If you are struggling in your life right now, I offer you a safe place and the support that you need. Therapy will provide a structure that allows you to work on your relationship with yourself and improve your relationship with others. I work with adults and adolescents on a broad range of difficulties such as depression, anxiety, loss and grief, body image and eating disorders.
My focus is to enable you to work on your relationship with yourself, which in turn allows you to deepen and improve your relationship with others. We will explore the patterns that prevent you from fully engaging in your life and creating the kinds of relationships that are satisfying.
As your psychotherapist, I am fully present for you, bringing warmth, humor, empathy and years of clinical experience into the healing environment. Through the construction of a safe relationship, I will help you understand your pain and move you towards a place where you feel more at peace with yourself.

Alison Trules's Groups

Parenting through the College Application Process

This group is to help parents during the stressful period of their child's college application process. It will provide both support and information about your role and how to best help your child. It will provide guidance about when to intervene, how to keep appropriate boundaries and when you need to provide assistance for your child. It's helpful to have a weekly structure to help address your concerns and anxiety so your child does not need to be burdened by this during their own time of academic stress and emotional challenge.

More about this group

Women's Psychtherapy Group

This is a small group that meets weekly to explore the range of issues that are frequently themes in women's lives. These themes include: friendship,intimacy, caring for oneself while caring for others, creativity, parenting, partnership and living a full and vital life. The group milieu is used to explore and examine how you relate to others in the group and how to identify feelings that emerge in the here and now of the group experience.
