In practice, Allison focuses on how thoughts and feelings impact our behaviors and the impact of the family as a whole on a person’s functioning. Her training includes perinatal mental health, cognitive behavioral therapy, Brainspotting, and crisis intervention.

Allison’s specialized training in perinatal mental health and her experience with postpartum anxiety helps her take a unique approach to working with new moms as they learn to navigate motherhood.
