Alison Sharp, a seasoned Licensed Clinical Social Worker, operates on the belief that individuals can reach a point in their lives where they refuse to tolerate old ways of dealing with problems. Whether tackling substance abuse, avoidance, blaming, or hiding, Alison is dedicated to helping clients establish new and effective coping mechanisms. With a career in social work since 1988, Alison approaches therapy as a healing journey with her clients, emphasizing partnership over authority.Working exclusively with adults who have achieved independence in most areas of life, Alison initiates the therapeutic process with a 15-20 minute phone or video conversation. This initial contact allows both parties to gauge compatibility and set the foundation for a collaborative therapeutic relationship. Alison's commitment to ongoing learning is evident in her continuous pursuit of education and comprehensive training in dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). She actively engages with current issues,
particularly in transgender health, striving to understand and support those challenged by gender identity issues.Alison's core values, shaped by her upbringing and experiences, include independence, bravery, and honesty. Acknowledging her white privilege, she remains committed to transcending this reality, advocating for those of different cultures, and fostering continual personal growth.
