Has depression, anxiety, chronic pain, or substance use tugged you off the course you thought your life would take? I truly believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to thrive and find meaning and fulfillment in life. With the right support, we can work to promote your recovery and better understand the core elements upholding addictive patterns and states of unwellness in your life. Teaching people how to love themselves first and to prioritize their mental and physical health is a critical first step to break the cycle of addiction.

Hello, I'm Allison Malan. I am an LCSW, I have been practicing as a Social Worker since 2016, and as a Clinical Social Worker since 2018. I am newly licensed by the state of California. I have worked in the healthcare field for the past 6 years, part of that working in a hospital setting supporting people with acute, chronic and serious/terminal illnesses. My approach to therapy is eclectic. I believe we all hold the strength and wisdom to thrive in the world, but that living in a society that in itself is sick and tired, starts to break us down and leaves us feeling like we are not enough.

I welcome the opportunity to work with young adults to older adults to help to develop a preferred self. I know that developing an identity as a young adult can be challenging. Professionals may find it exhausting to have a work-life balance, or may be seeking meaning in their lives. I appreciate and value the intersections of our identities and how we navigate our lives. I work in a relational way holding clients in positive regard, attuning to you, and helping to identify internal and external resources to apply.

Living life means dealing with challenging times. The good thing is that you don't have to face these challenging times alone. Everyone can use a supportive ear from time to time. Together we can cultivate a better tomorrow utilizing skills and techniques learned through therapy. Managing emotions is a skill just like learning to read or knowing how to do math. You just have to start by taking the first step. Sometimes the smallest steps in the right direction end up being the biggest steps of your life.

Therapy's a process of showing up for yourself on a path of self discovery finding the places in yourself that are best suited for who you are today and the goals and visions you wish to achieve. Sessions should be a collaborative journey with a therapist holding safe space for you guiding you toward becoming the person you have always had it within yourself to become. As a therapist I believe in meeting every individual where they are and where they are ready to start. Doing this I am given a chance to help people achieve the life they have envisioned and desired for themselves.
