Our experiences shape who we are and how we respond to all aspects of our lives. Therapy offers a time and a place to reflect and reshape our approach when it is not working, or when the distress out matches our existing skills. Therapy offers an opportunity to integrate experience, adapt and grow. Allison’s approach to therapy is holistic and acknowledges the many dimensions of identity, culture and interpersonal relationships which influence how we experience the challenges of everyday life. She provides emphasis on working in the present to create change and access healing. Allison integrates evidence based interventions from cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy and mindfulness. She incorporates an understanding of attachment and developmental processes which occur throughout adolescent and adult life. She is particularly interested in emerging research in the field of neuroscience related to emotion regulation and the experience of persistent pain.
