Alison Kliegman


About Me

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor based in New York with over 8 years of experience. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, LGBT issues, addictions, life issues, women's issues. I also helped many people from a range of socio-economic backgrounds.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, and solution-focused. I will tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

What I do first is online chatting with the typing sessions first until we feel comfortable enough with each other then we move to phone and video sessions.

I look forward to working with you!

I rarely keep therapists long term, and Alison has been my most consistent and supportive therapist that I have ever had. They are an incredible listener, help me keep good habits going, and have helped me through a lot of moments of transition and grief.
