I specialize in parenting techniques and strategies for adults of children with anxiety disorders, and behavior disorders.
Hello, I'm Allison. I'm glad you are taking the next step in addressing your mental health concerns and are considering working with a therapist. This is a big step and can be an intimidating one. It takes great courage to be vulnerable, especially with a new person! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor specializing in anxiety, OCD and related disorders. I empower individuals to take control of their lives, after often feeling pulled in a million directions by their mental health. I enjoy working with individuals age 16+, utilizing a variety of techniques and interventions.

Having an eating disorder can feel overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to control your life. I help you or your teenager understand the function their eating disorder has played in their life, and how to create a healthier way to move forward, free of the eating disorder’s rules and fears. When working with teens, I also help parents better understand their child’s experience and how best to support them. While I specialize in eating disorders, I also support clients through parenting, divorce, career transitions, and managing the stressors of everyday life, including break-ups and the often-tricky transition into adulthood.

If you are experiencing stress with everyday life, struggling with identity development, interested in parenting support, or simply need someone to be a sounding board, I would be a great fit.

Initially I will get to know you and what brings you to therapy. We will then begin exploring any issues that are interfering with your daily life. It is my hope that through our counseling sessions, you will feel safe to grow, develop new skills, and be a more authentic you.

I work with trauma (including sexual, interpersonal, and childhood), perinatal distress, life changes (including pregnancy and transition to parenthood), impact of childhood on parenting, anxiety, and stress.
I am continually honored to bear witness to healing as I support individuals and groups as they strengthen the relationship to themselves, others, and communities. I believe that healing occurs in therapy when there is a safe and trusting connection between the therapist and client. I strive to support the person sitting with me through listening with empathy and no judgments. My therapeutic style is integrative; I work with each person to find an approach that meets their needs. In doing so I draw on a variety of approaches including relational, client-centered, supportive counseling, mindfulness-based, and cognitive behavioral.

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, my approach is genuine and sincere. My focus is to help clients recognize and manage emotions, encourage ways to effectively express what they are feeling and introduce fun and effective coping strategies. Throughout my work with adults, teens, and children, it has been essential to communicate empathy as I build trust and teach the cognitive and relaxation skills necessary to help manage depression, grief, episodes of abuse, adjustment, and anger issues. To support the whole family, I attend to parents through couples counseling, and parenting skills to enhance/improve communication.
