About me

I am licensed clinical social worker in Michigan with 20 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients from a wide array of cultural backgrounds to address mental health concerns including stress and anxiety, trauma history, depression, grief & loss, interpersonal relationships, anger, impulse control, & bipolar disorder. I also have experience working with substance abuse issues. I believe in treating everyone with respect, dignity, and compassion. I take joy in empowering my clients to successfully manage and cope with life's challenges. I don't believe in "one size fits all" when it comes to addressing such personal issues as those related to mental health and substance abuse. I will work with you to create an individualized treatment plan specific to your unique needs and goals, providing unbiased support and guidance along the way.

For starting therapy for the first time, I instantly connected with Alison. She listens and gives her best advice and I would recommend her to anyone.

I haven’t been working with Alison long but so far I feel like it’s a really good fit, I’ve had other therapists that just didn’t seem to fit but working with Alison has been a great experience so far, she listens to me, helps me through what I’m dealing with and is supportive and gives good advice and listens and pays attention to me.

Alison as well as this app has been such a light at the end of a dark tunnel for me, she is very responsive and transparent with her clients. It brings me peace knowing that I can send her a message whenever I need, and she always responds in a professional, respectful, and compassionate manner. I highly recommend Alison to anyone, she has all of the tools in her toolkit to not only understand my barriers, but also offers wonderful advice, and support throughout our work together. She is an exceptional listener and very communicative. I’m very glad I found Alison!

Alison is amazing! She listens to my concerns and makes me feel validated. She has a structure for our sessions but is willing to adapt and change the session as things arise and develop. I always feel better after talking with her. Even after a few sessions she’s started helping me formulate tools and tricks to help manage my anxiety. She responds timely to my messages and worksheets with thoughtful responses. It’s been easy to find time to chat and I genuinely look forward to our weekly sessions!
