About Alison Hirshorn, LCPC
I believe we all have the potential to thrive in life.
Along the way, we may get blocked, feel stuck or overwhelmed, and need guidance and support at different times in our lives. I provide a collaborative space and relationship to help you connect with your potential. I view therapy as an important part of overall mind-body wellness. Each person has their own story, and I’d like to hear yours.
My areas of clinical expertise include event or relational trauma, anxiety, depression, stress management, relationships, grief and loss, parenting, career and life transition. As a career changer myself, formerly in business, I enjoy working with clients on professional issues and work-life balance.
I partner with my clients (adults 18+ years) to create emotional self-awareness, release ineffective patterns, and develop healthier coping strategies and relationships. I honor the strengths of my clients and their inner wisdom.
Safety, trust, respect, honesty, and acceptance are all foundational elements of my work. My approach is insight-oriented, relational and holistic. I have specialized training in trauma-informed therapy, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing), Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction, and Positive Psychology. I offer a complimentary initial phone or in-person consultation since finding a good fit is key to a successful process.
I received my Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology from Northwestern University. I hold a Masters Degree in Business Administration from Simmons University, & Bachelors Degree in Human Development & Family Studies from Cornell University.
