Thank you for reaching out. My name is Allison and I am a licensed therapist in the states of Illinois and Indiana. I look forward to meeting you and learning more about your individual needs. My hope for you is that you will find our sessions to be a safe space where you can share, feel supported, and grow. I enjoy incorporating art and mindfulness into sessions and am able to provide exercises for you to work on outside of our session time.
I have six years of counseling experience helping clients manage depression, anxiety, career changes, relationship issues and goals, parenting and postpartum struggles and complex trauma healing.
I believe you are the expert of your story and look forward to meeting you exactly where you are in this present moment. Your feelings and experiences are valid; reaching out for support shows your strength.
When I am not working I enjoy reading, hiking, and working on art projects. I look forward to connecting with you!

Allison is the best therapist I've had! She his helping me through a huge time of transition in my life, and I am so thankful to have her as a resource. I've been processing a lot of family, relationship, and work issues due to her guidance and care. She approaches every session and every issue with care and understanding. I know I can be 100% open with her. She provides me with great insights on how to work on myself and process my emotions both during and outside of our sessions. It's been extremely helpful to use the chat function on the platform to journal my emotions in between sessions. I highly recommend her to anyone that is looking for a safe space to process and grow!
