She is a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor, and trained in EMDR therapy.

“I believe we are the sum of our life experiences and who we are today is neither good nor bad, just a result of these experiences. At times we may find the way in which we interact in the world is no longer working for us. When this happens, it can be helpful to seek out an objective viewpoint to provide a new perspective.
I will work with you from a place of compassion and non-judgement, collaborating to make the changes you want. We do this by building off your strengths and finding solutions. Our therapeutic relationship is an avenue for healing and growth because it is a relationship that allows for respect, mutuality, and authentic connection. Within this relationship exists a safe environment, allowing for increased self-awareness, honesty, and self-acceptance.”
Ali’s therapeutic approach is supportive and focuses on individualized care, recognizing the needs and goals of each person. She uses a variety of evidence-based practices and approaches to improve overall well-being.
