About me

I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker licensed in Washington state. I am passionate about the mind-body connection and use both evidenced-based and holistic approaches to work with clients struggling with mood disorders, anxiety and panic, body-image issues, and more.

My therapy style is warm and respectful. I believe that you know yourself best, and that I am there to help draw out truths, provide new skills and help guide you onto a path that feels more in alignment with your values, dreams and goals. My approach is humanistic and experiential and our sessions will consist of information gathering, exploration and helpful activities tailored to fit your personalized treatment plan.

If you are ready to start therapy, I will create a judgment-free, safe and supportive environment for you to grow.

I look forward to working with you!

Written on Aug 03, 2022 after therapy with Allison for 10 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Ali is a great listener. She is very good at sitting with a lot of complex emotions and thoughts, gently bringing in perspective while respecting my lived experience. As a neurodivergent person I have had difficulty finding a therapist who believes, accepts, and is understanding of my unique ways of thinking/feeling; I feel like I can be really honest with Ali and trust her to accept me as I am, and I can trust her to offer tools and insight is collaborative, and doesn't just feel like a band aid. She is great and I highly recommend her as a therapist.

Allison has assisted me so much in the last 6 months, she has helped me grow in ways I didn’t even think were possible for me. She has helped me become a strong and efficient communicator. She has helped me realize my feelings are valid and also 100% okay to feel. I can’t even begin to speak on how wonderful she is. I appreciate her so much. Can’t wait to continue discovering new parts of myslef and growing into this beautiful confident human I am becoming.

Written on May 23, 2022 after therapy with Allison for 7 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, career difficulties, and adhd

I worked with Ali for about a year and she was so helpful in managing my anxiety & depression. She is very insightful, compassionate, and eager to dig into the root issues of your situation. She's provided me with tools I still use to navigate those big feelings, and now after having finished our sessions together, I feel confident in my ability to interact with the world without falling apart if something bad happens. If/when the time arises for me to seek counseling again, Allison will be my first call. I can't recommend her enough! Thank you so much, Ali!

Work with me!
