I’ve learned more from you in 2 sessions than I’ve learned from other therapists in 5 years. It feels so good to finally be making progress. It helps to have a clear understanding of myself and my partner. This is change that will last. -AP, 38 year-old female 

I am feeling so much more hopeful since our appointment than I have felt in a long time. I am so grateful for you.  You are very gifted at knowing what is needed and how to go about it.  I know there are things you say or seeds you plant

For once, my husband and I were able to discuss finances without blowing up at each other. This made it easier to address other hot topics in our marriage because we learned HOW to gravitate toward constructive communication patterns despite the emotional nature of some areas. Falling into old patterns

Alison, I wanted you to know how deeply grateful I am for all the ways you’ve contributed to my personal and sexual growth. Thank you for being non-shaming, valuing a holistic approach and teaching me how to re-frame things. I appreciate all your great recommendations, in fact I’m reading The Gifts

I began working with Alison approximately 10 months ago due to some issues I was having regarding a relationship. After 6 years with my boyfriend, I realized the entire past year I was extraordinarily unhappy, lonely, and dissatisfied. I felt if I didn’t leave the relationship then, I might never

Over the course of my life, I have seen 3 other couples therapists and 3 other individual therapists. Alison has been the best therapist I could possibly have asked for. She is intelligent, wise, and adept at working with complicated individual and couples issues. She is an endless resource for

EXCEPTIONAL MARITAL THERAPY! I sought therapy due to challenges within my marriage including communication and infidelity. I came to Alison at a crossroad in my life and 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

I am 55 years old and have been married to my wife for 27 years. The last ten years have been very unpleasant with a lot of arguing, no intimacy, and feeling like we are barely friends. Alison helped me think through my situation from an unbiased perspective and has

I was hesitant about investing in therapy, I wasn’t sure it would be worth the money. It has turned out to be invaluable! I was battling depression, struggling in my marriage, and turning 50 years old. My husband was not interested in doing therapy so I went on my own.

My current relationship began under very difficult circumstances, and we knew we needed help. We were both married and having an affair together.  I had not seen a therapist before, but my partner came across Alison and had a good feeling about her.  It turns out she was right.  Working

I was referred to Alison after my third suicide attempt. Immediately after meeting her I didn’t feel alone anymore. She doesn’t just sit there and take notes – she engages me and gives quality, real world, constructive feedback. She gives me ways to ‘exercise’ the skills we discuss between sessions so

Therapy is no stranger to me and up until working with Alison, I had pretty much lost faith in the benefits of therapy.  Alison has proven quite the opposite.  My personal life was shattering before me (i.e. going through separation and divorce; challenges of balancing a new romantic partner and being

I have met with several therapists over the last 18 years for my depression and anxiety, but none of them have come close to helping me progress the way Alison has. I’ve never felt better. I’m very reserved, but even from the first visit she made it really easy to open

I have been in and out of therapy over the past 20 years for anxiety and depression. While I liked some of my other therapists, I would eventually quit after improvement stalled. I never felt I had truly gotten better or that I had been given tools and learned techniques to help

Alison has helped me learn to be more calm and present in the moment instead of constantly looking towards the future (or dwelling on the past) and being consumed by anxiety. She is very kind and easy to talk to and her office is warm and comforting. I especially appreciate

Alison helped me get through a very difficult time in my life. I was living with and dating an abusive woman who has been professionally diagnosed with Borderline and Narcissistic Personality Disorders. I wanted to end that unhealthy relationship and living situation but was struggling with many irrational feelings that my

I’ve been married to my wife for 16 years. The first seven or eight years of being together was amazing sexually!!! With our connection I never thought I would be in a therapist’s office discussing sexual frustrations. For the last five years my wife has been very disinterested in sex, and
