As an Individual and Family Therapist, Allison's focus is on giving families dignity and respect in the face of their most troubling times. Through her work, she discovers that individuals are unique, skilled, resourced, strong and courageous, which allows her to meet them in their preferred ways, despite the devastating impact of their current situations. People in the midst of divorce are impacted by stress, worry, fear, judgement, and isolation. From her belief that people are so much more than the emotions they show, she finds that she can instantly connect with them and circumvent the ways problems are showing up in their lives.
Allison has an extensive background in Counselling Psychology, Narrative Therapy, and Collaborative Divorce Training. She is also a Certified Divorce Coach. Her inspiration comes from the relationships she builds with her clients; their humour, humility and courage drives her to continue creating an ethic of care.
In her play time, Allison loves to listen to music, be in nature and play badminton. Adding to her creative reportoire is her talent for circus performing!
