Hi I’m Ana, and I am excited that you have interest in Dr. Allison & Associates. I know it can feel intimidating to open up to a stranger about your life challenges and finding the right therapist can often feel like a challenge itself and I understand that it is important to make the right choice in who you choose to start your healing journey with. My hope is that this gives you an idea of what working with me might be like.
I primarily work with anxiety, depression, relationship issues and life transitions. I am also specifically passionate about working with athletes in creating mental health awareness, working on performance based-anxiety, and allowing athletes to be seen as a whole person and not just an athlete.
I believe in a holistic approach to therapy that incorporates more than just your thoughts and feelings. I like to consider all factors of your life that can be causing challenges such as, your environment, health, identity, multicultural factors, the list goes on and on! I use approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, mindfulness and Attachment Theory to better understand you as a whole person. My therapy space is one where you don’t have to be perfect and I encourage you to grow. I will encourage you to think deeply about yourself, cultivate self-love, and challenge you to translate what we work on into your daily life to empower you to take on whatever life throws at you.
If you feel like I’m a good fit for your growth and healing journey, reach out to Dr. Allison & Associates and I look forward to meeting you.
