About Me

At this time, the waitlist for Allison has closed.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Maryland and the District of Columbia. During my 13 years of clinical practice, I have worked with clients who have experienced a range of issues including depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, addiction, and general life challenges. I am experienced in working with individuals who have experienced trauma and/or first responders and others in helping professions who are experiencing secondary trauma or compassion fatigue. I believe that you are more than what has happened to you and that there’s always an opportunity to change our story. We are all a work in progress.


I have training in a variety of modalities, including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Solution-Focused Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, to name a few. However, my approach is eclectic, incorporating a variety of techniques to meet the needs of each client. Therapy is a collaborative effort and I enjoy guiding clients to identify their own strengths and inner resources. I believe in giving clients the tools and support they need to move ahead on their own, knowing support is available when they need it from me. I welcome all individuals regardless of sex, religion, sexual preference, or race. 

When working with clients I strive to make the therapy experience genuine, positive, respectful, and safe. I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in doing great things and overcoming things that challenge you. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started! Life can be challenging but there is always space for growth. I am excited to meet you and start this journey with you!
