I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and licensed Substance Abuse Counselor - In Training in Wisconsin with over 3 years of experience working as a counselor. I earned my Master of Social Work with a specialization in mental health from the University of Wisconsin - Madison. I have worked with clients aged 14 and up with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, Autism, and a variety of addictions (alcohol and other drugs, sex, gambling, and exercise). I also have helped people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My counseling style is empathetic, supportive, and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral therapy, client-center, strengths-based, psychodynamic and motivational interviewing counseling techniques. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique needs and work toward your desired goals.
It takes courage to improve areas of life which may lead to some of our most uncomfortable feelings. It is in those moments of discomfort that the impactful changes happen. Throughout my experience working with clients I have found the most important aspect is connection, the therapeutic relationship, and rapport. I will work with you at a pace you are comfortable with, while always taking steps towards your identified goals.
I look forward to working with you!

Very caring and understanding for all my needs
Alisyn has helped me look at things in a different way and helped me understand that I am doing a lot better than I thought I was! Giving me a different perspective and putting in to words how I feel when I wasn't sure how helped me talk to others in the way I needed to help them understand where I stood and how to move forward!
She is nice and understanding to talk with. She made me feel heard and safe to open up. I’m very grateful for her and everything she’s done for me so far. I look forward to the future!
