Allison is incredibly patient, level-headed, and open about her own experiences to relate to you. She even will go over-time rather than cutting off calls to make sure we are thorough.

Allison gets my full endorsement as a wonderful listener who presents the things you're going through from angles you hadn't considered. I enjoyed our conversations greatly, she clearly saw me as both a person and I believe as a friend by the end of our sessions, and with her help I was able to reorganize things in my life in a way that set me up to aim for the best version of myself.
She helped me out more than I think she even knows. Thanks again for everything Allison - hopefully the need doesn't arise, but if it ever does you can bet you'll hear from me again.
