About Me

Hi I’m Alyson!
I am a licensed Social Worker in Minnesota with about 10 years of professional work experience. I did community mental health for over 7 years and now am working from home doing more phone coaching. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, motivation, self esteem, and confidence, & depression. I believe in treating everyone with respect, empathy, and compassion. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I like to take a strengths based approach and be person centered in that process. I am a LGBTQ+ ally and believe in inclusivity.

I am married and have a daughter who is 2 1/2 and a son on the way which has been keeping me pretty active lately. I enjoy reading, taking my toddler on new adventures, and we are a baseball family!

Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process and I can’t wait to “meet” you!
