Hello, my name is Alison Chrun, MA, LMFT. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist based out of California. I enjoy helping clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, coping with addiction, stress and career challenges. I also help individuals who have suffered from trauma and emotional abuse.
My therapeutic style is warm and understanding. I believe in meeting my clients where they're at and allowing them to move at their own pace while simultaneously challenging them to work towards their treatment goals. My approach combines solution-focus, cognitive-behavioral, humanistic counseling and a heavy focus on mindfulness. I believe in molding every therapeutic approach to the needs of each specific client.
My availability on the text boards is sporadic. You will hear back from me generally within 24 hours unless I am scheduled to be on leave, which you will know about ahead of time. I do become more active on the text boards in the evening time and can engage in a back and forth text exchange at times.
I offer Live Chats, Video Sessions and Live Phone Sessions. If you are in need of an appointment sooner than my availability, please feel free to mention it to me on the boards and I can attempt to fit you in.
Reaching out for support is the first step in healing and also one of the hardest. This process can feel overwhelming and difficult. I am happy to walk this path of healing with you and look forward to speaking with you soon.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Alison Chrun. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Working with Alison has been such a blessing! I feel very heard and understood, I feel very well matched. She has been able to get to some core issues quickly and I’ve already noticed a positive shift in my day to day because of her insights, guidance, and homework. It feels really easy to talk to Alison and I appreciate being able to be fully honest and myself, I wish I had found this sooner. I really appreciate Alison, she has made a positive impact in my life in just a few sessions already.
Life changing therapy.
Super grateful to have found Allison and better help! She has been incredibly supportive and easily accessible when I needed her which is not in a stereo typical once a week type fashion or any of the therapy I was used to.
Can't say enough about Alison, helped me through some very dark places with my son and came out on the other side with great success!
Alison is Awesome! I've been through several people on this platform and Allison totally gets me. I know everyone is different and there are many different strategies when it comes to therapy but Alison gets me.
Words cannot express the level of gratitude i have, since i came across Alison’s profile. I knew she was the one that would help me. Every session we have had she hears me and just knows how to keep me on track towards the end goals i have. I am so blessed to have such an amazing therapist. I already have recommended her to more than a handful of friends that need somebody like her in their lives. If it wasn’t for BetterHelp we wouldn’t have crossed paths and I wouldn’t be where I’m at. Thank you all!!
Astute and insightful and very easy to share with!
I love her approach in counseling. It aligns with all of my beliefs and I resonate with everything she tells me. I feel safe to express everything that I am feeling and I like that she helps me pin point the root of my emotions. I feel very understood.
Teary-eyed as I write this. I can't be more thankful for having Alison as my therapist. Gone through so many, not one understood me, started to believe therapy didn't work. But I have never been more grateful that I didn't stop looking. Alison gives so much warmth I've never felt before. She listens, she cares, and she made me feel like I was actually worthy of being listened to. It always seems like she knows me so much more than anyone (even myself).
Alison is always accommodating to my schedule, always answers my messages quickly and thoughtfully, and always makes me feel comfortable! I’ve been seeing her for about 2 years now and and love her!
To be honest with you, she's way better than I thought she'd be. I didn't expect her to understand me or figure out what I've been going through but it seems like she at least knows what I'm dealing with.
Alison really cares and listens to what I have to say. She takes every word in account when we work things through. She remembers what I’ve said even a month ago. She makes it easier to live with anxiety, and she offers more support than even those around me do.
I feel like I have someone who is genuinely interested in helping me. I look forward to speaking with her as she has an approach that's very direct but warm and understanding.
I’ve already recommended this platform to people in my program. I’ve had years of therapy but I think between the platform and Alison, we’ve had some pretty good breakthroughs in a matter of a couple weeks. There’s no restrictions on time and I get all the attention I would want. It’s really been a godsend.
