approach to client work. Alyson advocates for LGBTQIA+ affirming care, fat-

work. She also recognizes how those intersections often show up in navigating the

bringing elements of playfulness and humor into her work. Through the application of

art-based practices, traditional talk-based therapies all while utilizing a trauma-informed

lens, Alyson hopes to co-develop a strong therapeutic alliance with clients in service of

working through life’s stressors.

health counseling with a specialization in art therapy. Alyson is passionate about

working alongside clients, acknowledging the importance of the therapeutic relationship.
