Hello, I’m Alyson! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with 15+years working with a wide variety of populations and environments experiencing mental health challenges. My focus has been on children, adolescents, families and most recently adults. I enjoy the diversity of experiences and helping to create resiliency and change in the lives of each individual and family system. My experience is geared toward behavioral challenges, anxiety, depression, PTSD and traumatic experiences. I am trained in CBT, psycho education, mindfulness, art and play techniques, motivational interviewing, trauma specific strategies, strength based, solution focused, and other common modalities. I am excited to begin exploring EMDR next!
In my approach, I work to identify and utilize each individual’s strengths and skills. In order to build trust in the therapeutic relationship, I believe in being present and meeting each individual where they are so we can do the work to promote growth, healing and change. A healthy, safe, and trusting client-counselor relationship is a center piece to this work.
When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my children, 4legged family members, being outside and working to expand my gardens. I am an avid native plant enthusiast!
