Allison is very passionate about working with children, adolescents and adults and has a special niche for teenagers and their families.  The most common reason teenagers seek treatment is because they are feeling depressed and anxious.  There are several possible causes for why they feel this way including low self esteem, thinking errors, problems with friends or family members, pressure to perform well in school, trauma, identity struggles, or any major life change such as a move or a loss.  In turn, they resort to unhealthy styles of coping such as isolating, lashing out, self-harming, addictions, and eating disorders.   Allison offers a safe, comfortable and non-judgmental environment in which to process situations that are causing problems and to discover alternative, healthy solutions. Her treatment approaches include family systems, strengths based, cognitive behavioral and dialectical behavioral.
