Ally is absolutely phenomenal. I was a little hesitant to make the switch to online therapy, but overall its been a great decision. She's been by my side since September and I really appreciate how open our communication is. I've been able to put more focus on my mental health and have a more balanced outlook.

Written by D.A. on Mar 26, 2020 after counseling with Allison for 10 months on issues concerning relationship

Allison is one incredible person and counselor. She is so understanding and empathetic yet honest. I truly don’t know what I would do without her! She’s fantastic.

Written by S.A. on Nov 16, 2019 after counseling with Allison for 1 month on issues concerning relationship

Allison was an incredibly supportive and effective counselor for us. She clearly was an active listener and showed us compassion while still speaking frankly and from the heart.

Written by D.A. on Oct 12, 2019 after counseling with Allison for 3 months on issues concerning relationship

Allison has been an amazing counselor. She's very caring, empathetic, understanding, never judges, and always listens. Me and my wife had some incredibly tough times along with some very intense personal issues. Allison remained 100% neutral and took no side, only helped us figure out what it is we truly need and where our problems came from. Eventually I had her as my own individual counselor also and she was just as fantastic. In the end she helped me through the hardest time of my life and also helped us with the problems and what we needed to do individually to fix them.

If it's as a couple, or as an individual I highly recommend Allison for anyone having a tough time who needs someone to talk things through with.

I really enjoyed my conversations with Allison Grace. She listened intently to my concerns and was able to help me organize my thoughts. I was so grateful she had a background in SPED. I had some issues with my special needs child and she helped and empathized with me. I would recommend her to anyone. She helped me so much. I will be using her in the future.

She's really great. I like her a lot. I feel I can talk and she's nonjudgemental.

Written by D.A. on Jul 09, 2019 after counseling with Allison for 6 months on issues concerning relationship

We worked with Allison for 6 months and thought she was great. She helped us developed skills to better communicate with one another and also helped us better ourselves as individuals. She is a wonderful listener and does an amazing job acting as a unbiased mediator when resolving conflicts and working to better understand one another's perspectives. Highly recommended.


Alli has been so amazing. I have had to overcome so much and she was always there with a listening ear to help guide me thru. Love her approach on everything was never a you need to do this or that it was always us collaborating how to better the situation after identifying what was causing the actions or emotions. I cant Express enough how grateful I will always be for her, I highly recommend her to everyone!

Allison knows the words I was looking for and that is so key to finding a rhythm and trust with a counselor. She lets me vent and her input allows me to find common ground.

Common Issues


Depression & Anxiety

Depression & Anxiety

Depression, anger and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience. However, By learning that all feelings are OK;  They are neither good nor bad.  Some are simply more uncomfortable than others.  By learning how to express emotions and master your mind to regulate your feelings rather than allow them to master you, I am able to help you recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life.
