Alison L. Andrews Therapy Services has over 15 years of experience working with children, adolescents, and families. The practice specializes in school aged children who struggle with anxiety and depression due to trauma, difficult situational transitions, and family struggles.
At any stage in one’s life, individuals and families can be presented with challenges that can be difficult to manage successfully on their own. I understand that it is not easy to ask for help, and people enter into therapy for a variety of reasons, but ultimately, we want to feel better and lead productive lives.
I value the importance of the client-therapist relationship and strive to assist clients in gaining insights into their behavior. I attentively listen to each client empathetically, to help identify and define target problems, and together we develop the therapeutic treatment plan to best meet their unique needs and goals. I collaborate with schools, doctors, and other sources to assist in advocating for my clients. In addition, I provide tools, strategies, and resources to increase my clients’ coping and problem-solving skills that can be of life long benefit.
