Allison’s approach to therapy is constructivist; meaning, she seeks to understand how people view themselves and the world around them, then works with her clients to create meaning out of challenging life events. Because change occurs constantly in life, her goals for therapy often include helping people find new ways to frame and cope with the changes they experience. Allison believes that increasing self-awareness and a sense of agency is essential to personal growth. She is also passionate about helping people find authentic ways to express themselves.
Allison’s therapeutic process is firmly rooted in the belief that all individuals are strong and resilient. Her style is collaborative and integrative. As a life long dancer, her practice considers both mind and body. She enjoys using creative and expressive arts interventions to help facilitate client expression.

She is passionate about supporting individuals who are uncertain about their options or need a safe space to process their experience with pregnancy loss or abortion. Allison also has experience in career counseling, teaching, college counseling, and facilitating experiential psycho-education.
