I came to Alyson when I was pregnant, physically sick beyond comprehension and depressed. I was a person who always thought I would seek help if I needed it but could never imagine the illogical thinking a person suffering from depression experiences. Or rather, the non-thinking. I would sit around sick and lost in an empty sad mind, unhappy to have a child. My husband by catering to my needs helped me to not completely fade away. But I needed real help. I needed to cry, feel bad for myself, and hear another person tell me that this was temporary. I actually could not seem to trust that this was temporary. I’m a spiritual person and believe I was blessed to stumble upon Alyson’s name. From the moment I began to see her… I was seeing the light at the end of a long tunnel. I felt extremely comfortable with her. She was always the best type of professional. One who was knowledgeable, intuitive, compassionate but unlike any friend… She obviously was trained and remarkable about having neutral reactions but always showed a human sided when I needed it. She just knew exactly what she was doing. I truly felt she cared about my well-being and wanted to help me. I could honestly say I don’t know if I would have been able to finish my pregnancy and have my beautiful son without Alyson. To some it might seem extreme, but in my heart of hearts, I basically owe her for my son’s life. Alyson clearly is dedicated to her profession and the purpose behind it- simply- to help, to guide, to open up one’s mind and to be a sounding board-at least, for me that is what she was. Thank you Alyson so very very much!
