Alison Shimoda (She/Her)

Accepting Clients

Hello! My name is Alison, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Candidate (LPCC) here in the beautiful state of Colorado.

Licensed Professional Counselor Candidate in Fort Collins, CO
Supervised by Julien Faure, J.D., LL.M., M.S., LMFT

About My Clients

“I feel lost and alone.” “No one truly understands me.” “There is a disconnect between who I am and who I want to be.” These thoughts and feelings may seem overwhelming, but there is hope. Each of us has a unique story with a collection of experiences, emotions, and identities. Even though we face challenges in our lives, we don’t have to feel stuck forever. I believe everyone is capable of growth, finding meaning in their life, and becoming more aligned with who they want to be.

My Background and Approach

In therapy, I prioritize using a person-centered approach by listening deeply to my clients and their story to better understand their unique goals. Whether starting therapy for the first time or returning to therapy after a hiatus, I aim to cultivate an environment in which empathy, compassion, and authenticity are woven throughout the therapeutic space. I believe that intersectionality plays a critical role in identity, and I am affirming of all LGBTQIA+ and cultural identities. Through collaboration, I am passionate about supporting my clients to achieve their goals and empowering them to live more authentically. If you are interested in seeing if I would be a good fit for your therapeutic journey and goals, please give me a call or send me a message. I look forward to hearing from you!
