About Me

Hello! My name is Alyson, I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Virginia with over 10 years of experience in the mental health field. I have spent over half of my profession working with clients in crisis. I have worked with clients experiencing issues with depression, anxiety, trauma, life changes, stress management, those managing disabilities and student (college) populations.

I have a person centered, solution focused style. I believe in honesty, dignity and respect as core values. My goal is to meet you where you are and assist you with moving to where you want to be.

I am aware it takes courage to seek professional help. My goal is to provide you with a safe, nonjudgmental space, to assist you with the tools and skill sets to help you be the best you in moving forward. I’d love to help guide you along the way.

Written by H.E. on May 03, 2021 after counseling with Alyson for 3 weeks on issues concerning self esteem

Alyson has been very helpful so far, our discussions and the supplementary material she sends me have been useful in understanding myself better.
