Individual Counseling for Adolescents and Adults.
Allison approaches counseling from an integrative perspective, incorporating models of human lifespan development, holistic health approaches and evidence-based treatments for specific presenting concerns. She feels it is important to be a good match with her clients so they can work collaboratively together. Allison looks forward to client questions in their first meeting, where she will ask for and value feedback. She provides warm and affirming attention and support. Depending on the specific needs and interests of her clients, Allison's counseling sessions might include practicing strategies to shift thinking styles or habits, exploring different ways to be effective in relationships or learning specific techniques to reduce stress. She believes that everyone can heal, improve, and find recovery. Allison's approach includes emphasis on existing skills and resiliency.
Outside of work, I spend a lot of time with friends and family. I love to laugh, read and play outside.
