12 years of experience
Solution oriented

Hi there! I'm Ally. Do you ever feel like you are being pushed and pulled in everyday life, struggling to make it all work? You deserve to live a life that makes you feel excited to face every day - and this can often feel tough. I believe that one of the bravest things you can do is to begin to understand your own story, to see where you have been, as you find new ways to move forward in your life. I have been working in the mental health field for a little over 12 years, working in various settings. These years of experience have nurtured rich relationships, in which wisdom between my clients and myself was often shared together. I am passionate about helping with various issues: anxiety, depression, relationships, adjustment to various life occurrences, and various forms of addiction. Seeking therapy can be scary, but you are worth it! If you want to share your life story with me, let's work together and get started!

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

I believe in the organic process of therapy, that is meeting you where you are with the issues you bring. In the first sessions, we will begin by discussing your goals for treatment and how therapy works. Later sessions, we will start with the issues which are foremost on your mind and work from there. The time in treatment is about you, not me- so I will not have an agenda. I may remind you about something you said in a previous session and ask you about it, but I will always take my cue from where you are at in any given session, as you will set the direction of the therapeutic work.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

Although I work with a variety of issues as noted above, it is the overall adjustment to various life happenings which hold a special interest for me. These transitions can often throw us off balance, creating issues in our relationships or cause of anxiety, depression, etc. Transitions at many stages of life can be so challenging - it can help o have someone to work with to navigate through these rough waters. I can't wait to be that guide for you!

My treatment methods

Dialectical Behavior (DBT)

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is essentially a modified form of cognitive behavioral therapy. The main areas I use this in my sessions are to help people live for the moment, develop healthy ways to cope with stress, learn how to regulate their emotions, and improve all relationships in their lives.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

Cognitive behavioral therapy is the backbone of all therapy. I use CBT to help explain to each client how every thought can lead to a feeling. I will ultimately help you examine your thoughts and beliefs. This results in allowing me to reveal how your distorted thoughts can directly lead to negative feelings. By putting in this work, thought patterns change, and this will lead you to happy and healthier feelings.
