Allison is a dedicated Registered Clinical Counsellor with a passion for guiding individuals through their journeys of self-discovery and healing. With over 15 years of experience in the field of mental health, she has become a beacon of support for both youth and adults facing a range of challenges, from anxiety and depression to grief and loss, ADHD, interpersonal struggles, life transitions, and matters related to sexuality.

With a client-centered approach at the core of her practice, Allison creates a safe and welcoming space where every individual is embraced for who they are. Her empathetic and non-judgmental demeanor helps people feel heard, respected, and valued as they navigate their unique paths to well-being. Drawing from various therapeutic modalities, including sand tray therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, attachment theory, and internal family systems, Allison customizes her approach to best fit the needs of each person she works with.

Currently based in Squamish, British Columbia, Canada, Allison works full-time in private practice. Her expertise lies in one-on-one therapy sessions, where she specializes in fostering relationships that make individuals feel truly seen and heard. As a result, her clients gain not only coping strategies but also the confidence to embrace their own strengths and resources.

Beyond her professional endeavors, Allison finds joy in a variety of activities. She's an avid reader, a dedicated runner, and an enthusiastic hiker. Traveling with her family is another cherished pursuit that allows her to discover new perspectives and cultures.

Allison's commitment to mental health advocacy, combined with her years of experience and diverse therapeutic toolkit, make her a trusted ally for anyone seeking support and growth on their personal journey.

My Approach

My practice is deeply influenced by my own children's experiences and their shifts, as they have navigated the world around them. This changed my own parenting style and taught me the importance of listening, and observing, to understand what in the environment is not working. And I bring this learning into my work.

 

I want youth and adults to leave our sessions feeling empowered. This is an environment where you are heard, respected and welcome to be who you are. I meet people where they are at and accept them for who they are unconditionally, without judgment, approval or disapproval. I help them identify personal strengths and resources in a non-judgmental and respectful way. I encourage expression of thoughts, feelings, perceptions and experiences in a safe and supported environment.
