Owner & Counselor
“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”
Alison has lived in the Brazos Valley for nearly 20 years. She holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a master’s degree in clinical psychology from Sam Houston State University (SHSU) and is now a licensed professional counselor-supervisor (LPC-S). Alison operated a non-profit counseling clinic, Brazos Valley Counseling Services (BVCS), for six years, where she trained dozens of students and interns and oversaw the provision of low-cost counseling services for low- and middle-income individuals and families.
Upon closing BVCS, Alison opened a private practice. She continues to work with a wide variety of clients, including those with bipolar disorder, depression, sexual abuse, adolescent issues, and those in need of couples or family counseling. She contracts with Twin City Domestic Violence Services to provide counseling services to their clients, notably survivors of domestic violence, and continues to supervise LPC-Interns seeking licensure. In addition, she is an adjunct professor at Blinn College who teaches general psychology.
