About me

Hello! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Missouri, as well as a Registered Art Therapist. During my 10 years of clinical experience, I have worked closely with groups and individuals experiencing depression, anxiety, PTSD, and many other mental health concerns with my emphases being trauma and crisis intervention. I use a person-centered approach which means our sessions are led by your needs and goals, not a one-size-fits-all therapeutic approach. Stuck in a rut? Not understanding why you just…can’t? I am here to help you process where you currently are mentally and emotionally, and to help guide you into a space in which you feel more aligned with who you are and your vision for yourself. Welcome to your journey!

Alison is a breath of fresh air! I feel comfortable sharing my feelings with her and I am able to open up. Very respectful and understanding as well! Above all, Alison is a professional and conducts the therapy sessions as such. Thank you!

I am (or..was) a therapy skeptic. I knew it was helpful for many people, but I just didn't know if I'd find value in it. I found the idea of finding a therapist that resonated with me daunting. Alison is a great fit for what I'm looking for. Time to vent, unload, have someone listen and actively converse with me. I felt understood and heard, but I also left with some important facts about my circumstance that I immediately leveraged to my benefit. I've since recommended better help to many friends.

She is extremely personable and genuinely wants to help. Her analogies and guidance are extremely relatable and is the best advice I’ve ever been given!

My first meeting with her felt comfortable. I felt like I could talk to someone for the first time in my life while being human.
