About My Clients

You drag yourself to campus to begin the cycle of emptiness: grade papers, attend meetings, be dismissed by colleagues. You share ideas only to be met with condescension or the ideas stolen by Kristen. She makes you want to scream and you want her acceptance. It’s taxing doing the mental gymnastics of saying things the right way to stay on her good side. You’ve done therapy before, but yearned for more. You’ve read online articles and watched TikToks but it doesn’t make it easier to exist.

My Background and Approach

There are a lot of fucked up things in the world that makes it truly hard to trust or open up to others. You’re scared of the risk of trying a new therapist again, yet, toughing it out on your own isn’t making a difference. In fact, you’re finding yourself creeping deeper into the hole of hopelessness. You’re ready for therapy with someone who doesn’t hide behind worksheets. I’m Alison - quirky, passionate, a bit of a dork - and I’m a therapist. We will be curious about what it’s like to be you and challenge the shit your internal bully feeds you. If you’re ready to be in a space where you do not have to exhaustingly mold yourself to fit something that feels tight and wrong, click on my website to schedule your consultation.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Addressing the -isms of oppression is required for healing your gaping unhealed emotional wounds. Afterall, how does it not affect you? Everywhere, there is racism, whether that’s the workplace, school, movies, music, you name it. There is ableism, sexism, neurotypical-ism (is that even a word?), fatphobia, trans and homophobia. This world makes it clear that if you’re “different” then there is something wrong with you. I’m here to say that’s bullshit. If you are ready to call out and challenge the internalized -isms and talk about how oppression impacts the way you move through the world, schedule your free consultation now.
