Alison Kilkelly, LCSW Licensed Therapist & Relationship Expert

Couples Counseling Madison WI

“EXCEPTIONAL MARITAL THERAPY! I sought therapy due to challenges within my marriage including communication and infidelity. Being at a crossroad in my life, I needed to find someone to listen and support me in my struggle to gain confidence and salvage my marriage.

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. I don’t recall a time when I was able to simply let go, start from the beginning and let the words flow freely.

As a result, I feel lucky and privileged that over our sessions I have improved communication with my husband, developed tools to help us continue to grow and begun the journey to greater self-awareness. Alison’s realism in our discussions is so appreciated, and seemingly difficult to find in a therapist.

Life is not always easy and our path often uncertain however, Alison has been able to share insights and applicable literature to help us work through the most difficult of situations. She is positive and caring, flexible and understanding, and I am thankful for all that she has to offer.”        –  JK, 50-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.’

“Thank you for more than you’ll ever know. You rescued me from wasting my life in a toxic relationship.”    

 – KJ, 45-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.”   
– PM, 56-year-old

“Alison, I wanted you to know how deeply grateful I am for all 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 and I’ve given away all your business cards to friends and health professionals who plan to pass your name along to others.”                                                                                                        – BB, 33-year-old

First and foremost, my approach is non-judgmental and non-shaming.

My personality is very authentic, caring, relaxed, and down to earth and I really want to hear what is weighing on you and help where I can.

My office is your safe space to talk through anything.


Therapy isn’t always heavy. 

There can be levity. In fact, I encourage it. Without dismissing the gravity or importance of something, this makes the therapeutic work enjoyable and more memorable for lasting impact!

Do you know what you are looking for?

Advice? Direction? Someone to listen?

You might know exactly what you want and need ideas for how to get there, or we can explore what will be helpful.

Either way, I am your enthused co-pilot!


Some sessions will bring immediate change, and you’ll love that the majority of the tools and skill-building we discuss are simple and not time-intensive, therefore, you can easily sustain your change outside of our time together.

Engaging in therapy is a phenomenal expression of self-care that allows you to be the best version of yourself in every context (e.g. Marriage, Family, Parenting, Friends, Work, etc). You aren’t reliant on someone or something else to create the best version of yourself, and that’s incredibly empowering.


Therapy is beneficial regardless of the magnitude of your concerns and whether or not you stay in a relationship. What you learn will carry you forward to a more satisfying life.

making the appointment is an easy first step!

Working with Alison makes your growth, healing, and change process easier, more focused, and much more efficient than doing it alone.

Accessible. My clients really value that I am easily accessible via phone, text, and email in between our sessions because they get prompt support when a significant challenge arises.

Immediate. Appointments are typically available within two weeks, and crisis appointments are usually accommodated within 24-48 hours.

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

Flexible. 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.

Private. 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! 

Fun & Effective. The testimonials say it all.

 Create a better life for yourself, starting now. 

Lastly, I look forward to hearing from you!
