About Me

Welcome, I'm really glad you're here! My name is Alison and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker specializing in mental health throughout a variety of settings with adult clients. For my individual practice, I approach therapy as a collaboration between myself and the individual. Without judgement, I strive to create a space for honest dialogue meant to support individuals in understanding the connections between their thoughts, feelings, and behavior. My intention as a therapist is to help you feel comfortable, heard, validated, and empowered. I aim to support you in identifying personal goals and taking manageable steps towards achievement. I offer conversation that is compassionate and authentic with a side of humor. It can be hard out there- taking the step to seek out support takes courage. I'm grateful for the opportunity to work with you.

Written by H.E. on Jun 11, 2021 after counseling with Alison for 5 months on issues concerning depression, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and compassion fatigue

Allison is a GIFT. She is consistent, wise, friendly, thoughtful, and affirming. She gives me all the space and time I need to work through my issues and responds with nothing but wise encouragement. I've had a lot of bad-to-meh experiences with counselors, but finally—FINALLY—feel like I'm getting the help I need with Allison.

Alison has helped me through past trauma that has haunted me for over a decade, to learn to put shame behind me and to take a more active roll in keeping my mental and emotional health better.

Alison is a friendly, easygoing, and understanding therapist. She has listened patiently to my issues and taken the time to make sense out of them in a skillful and logical manner, whilst always being gentle. She evidently knows what she is talking about and has a knack of finding the perspective that I am missing. I am grateful to have been matched with her!

Alison has been incredibly kind and helpful with her support. She's also made it easy for me to learn the ropes of this type of service. I appreciate her professionalism and ability to listen to a problem and then respond with resources and positivity.

I would highly recommend Alison Mace. I really feel like she understands exactly what my concerns are and what I would like to work on. She helps me understand things from a perspective that I don’t always see things, which is extremely helpful. She provides me with the tools, information and knowledge that I need.

I know it's still early after one session, though I highly recommend Alison as a knowledgable and comfortable professional to discuss with.
