Alison Inhelder, BS - Couples & Family Therapy Intern
Alison is pursuing her Master of Arts degree at the University of St. Thomas, with a specialization in Marriage and Family Therapy. Alison has experience working with children, adolescents, adults and families with a variety of mental health diagnoses, including anxiety disorders, eating disorders, and emotional and behavioral disorders. In Alison’s experience, an individual’s mental health has an impact on the entire family, and she believes working systemically with families can bring about significant change.
Alison utilizes an integrative approach, and finds it important to shape therapeutic interventions to fit the needs of each client or family. Alison enjoys working within the frameworks of Family Systems Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Interpersonal Neurobiology to explore emotion, relationships, and how these aspects of a person’s experience intersect.
Alison’s approach is strengths-based, empathic, and genuine. She honors clients’ circumstances, and approaches well-being from a standpoint of empowerment. Alison’s therapy is characterized by her efforts to join with clients, view people in the context of their backgrounds, and treat people respectfully as human beings, not as the sum of their symptoms.
