Why I provide innovative therapy:

To help you navigate, avoid, or heal from painful relationships, partnering with the wrong person, break-ups, and divorce. And help you learn what you should expect as healthy and reasonable difficulties in life and relationships, and how to troubleshoot these challenges.
My approach to therapy allows deeper understanding of yourself and each other, promotes an authentic way of living and therefore a sense of ease and well-being, as well as lasting connection in your partnership.
We aren’t taught healthy communication skills, especially in the context of romantic relationships. Clients like my amiable, down-to-earth approach to help them learn what healthy communication sounds like around their most heated topics, how to stay calm and respectful when emotions run high, and how to avoid repetitive arguments.

What Clients are saying… 

EXCEPTIONAL MARITAL THERAPY! There was something in the way that Alison described her area of expertise and my first impression was she would be approachable and nonjudgmental, two important factors for me to form a safe and secure connection…she did not disappoint. Alison’s realism in our discussions is so appreciated, and seemingly difficult to find in a therapist. She is positive and caring, flexible and understanding, and I am thankful for all that she has to offer.”        

– JK, 50-year-old

 

“In just 2 sessions with you, I’ve learned more than I have in 5 years from other therapists! It feels so good to finally be making progress…These are changes that will last.”   

 – AP, 45-year-old

 

“I’m feeling so much more hopeful than I have in a long time! I am so grateful for you. You’re very gifted in knowing what is needed and how to go about it.” 

– JM, 52-year-old

 

*‘You have helped heal parts of me I never knew were possible, and I have never felt more at peace because of it. My husband and I started counseling as a last-ditch effort, hanging on by a thread. We are now the strongest and healthiest we’ve ever been.’  

– LS, 38-year-old

“Finally, my husband and I can discuss finances without blowing up at each other. These skills make it easier to address other hot topics in our marriage. We both feel heard, valued, and loved again.”

“Alison, I wanted you to know how deeply grateful I am for the ways you’ve contributed to my personal growth. Thank you for being non-shaming, valuing a holistic approach, and teaching me how to re-frame things. Your words of affirmation have also been timely and restorative. You are incredibly gifted in your work.”

Alison’s Therapeutic Approach

Clients tell me they appreciate not feeling judged or shamed and they can trust my authentic, down-to-earth personality with any admissions or questions.

I like to bring in levity where appropriate without dismissing the gravity or importance of a topic. This makes therapy approachable, more enjoyable, and more memorable for lasting impact.

Why Therapy/Coaching is a great idea

Cultivating the best version of you is not a straightforward, easy task. We are all works in progress forever. Using evidence-based modalities and tools, you and I collaborate using your life experiences and circumstances and bring to life what you’re seeking. You’ll find your relationships much easier to navigate and difficult conversations easier to have.

Working with a professional helps you understand yourself and others on a deeper level, and makes the change process more efficient.

Why My Clients Choose AK Counseling, Inc.

EfficacyClients get the results they are looking for; whether that’s a better marriage, more happiness, or a reliable sounding board.

Accessibility. I am easily accessible via phone, text, and email in between our sessions to provide prompt support.

Immediacy. Appointment openings are typically available within two weeks, and crisis appointments are usually accommodated within 24-48 hours. I have some Saturday availability.

Virtual. If proximity or time constraints make in-person visits a challenge we can meet via Zoom (HIPAA-compliant video conferencing).

Flexibility. Sessions are 60, 75, or 90 minutes (longer by request). If we hit a great stride near the end of our scheduled time and both our schedules allow, we can continue our appointment to maximize your progress.

Privacy. My cozy therapy room is located in a low-profile, quiet building on the near west side of Madison (Hilldale Area). Your personal information and the content of our sessions are kept confidential. My practice is not subject to annual state audits, as large clinics are where client files are reviewed by state personnel.

Solution-Focused. Many of my clients are looking for input, direction, and solutions. My approach to therapy is practical and expedites your change process.

Comfort. Your comfort is a priority and I will do my best to provide it. Please ask for what may help you! 

 Create a better life for yourself, starting now!

 I look forward to hearing from you!
