Allison believes that psycho-education around a person’s background, can open many doors in exploring why we feel and act in certain behaviors. She believes that CBT is a wonderful way to change anxious thoughts/habits/behaviors by looking at the core beliefs one has about themselves and how we can modify them, together.
Allison’s family resides in Long Island, NY, but her heart is in Burlington, VT after attending college here, and graduating in 2015. In her free time, Allison loves to read, watch horror films, go to concerts, cook spicy food of all cuisines, and connect with friends.
