What does a first session with you look like?

The first session, as with all Thriveworks therapists, will involve talking through your needs and goals for therapy — whether those involve managing depression, anxiety, relationship problems, or another mental health challenge. This will enable you to receive the very best care, as a personalized treatment plan will then be developed for subsequent sessions. Thriveworks helps people live happier, more fulfilling lives. Clients are guided and supported as they work through their unique mental health challenges – and, along the way, shown the life-changing power of therapy.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I offer a variety of counseling approaches including CBT / Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems. I seek to guide, encourage and assist individuals through difficult or uncertain times in their lives.

What should we know about your experiences and background?

Allyson Shields is a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC) with more than 9 years of experience working with adults and seniors. She specializes in treating anxiety, depression, divorce-related stress, relationships, trauma, and PTSD. With Allyson, clients should expect freedom and openness in a safe environment. It is her desire that those who enter into the counseling relationship should also find keys to understanding themselves and skills to cope with the various issues that may bring them there. Allysone believes that counseling is a helping relationship, in a place where trust and mutual respect abide. Your story is important. How you feel emotionally is important. Real change happens when we allow our real selves to show up. The counseling experience requires a certain amount of vulnerability.
