Thank you for reaching out for support! Everyone needs someone with whom to process the challenges and experiences of life. As a clinician on this site, I can offer therapeutic services across a range of mediums from video conferencing to text messages. This allows for a unique communication style that is more fluid than traditional face to face counseling.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with over 19 years experience in mental health. I earned my master's degree in social work from Simmons College in Boston and currently work and practice in Hawaii. Over the years, I have had the pleasure of serving individuals, groups, and families across the life span from young children to the elderly. Much of my clinical work has been in inner cities with people experiencing trauma, poverty, homelessness, anxiety, depression, PTSD, and spiritual problems. I also work with people around issues of intimacy, relationships, family, and educational/professional concerns.
My approach with you will be to get to know who you are, what’s important to you, and what you hope to improve in your life. Using a customized approach based on a broad range of treatment modalities and life experience, I can help guide you towards answers that are already inside you. I can also offer resources, information, support, and always compassion. I know you are a whole, valuable individual, capable of achieving your goals and I would be proud to help you along the way.

Alison is kind and warm hearted bringing her full self along with her deep expertise to the relationship. She is empowering in her approach, providing support and depth as you work together.
Alison is very patient and understanding. She asks the right questions, while respecting my boundaries and triggers. I only had one session with her so far, but I felt very understood by her.
Allison has been nothing but understanding and patient. I highly recommend her for exceptional skills, and personality.
Alison is a fantastic counselor, a great listener and has become a very important part of my week. Each of her sessions leaves me feeling uplifted and filled with new thoughts and ideas.
Alison is an amazing and understanding counselor. Talking to her helped me understand myself better, while I am dealing with very stressful moment of my life. I connected a lot with her, and for the first time I felt totally comfortable talking about my weaknesses and my feelings.
Alison instantly made me feel comfortable with her and gave me a safe, open space to talk about my problems. I connected with her in a way I haven't been able to with any other counsellor and the effect was life changing. She always gave me a fresh perspective to see things with and that was incredibly helpful. I highly recommend her to anyone going through a tough time who needs the support and care of a counsellor.
Alison is understanding and really thought about my issues even when we were not in session.
