Alison Hickman, LCSW

Psychotherapist

Professional statement

There are a hundred different flavors of therapist. Why choose me? Well, to start with, a lot of therapists receive a degree and have very little or no clinical training. That is, training as to what to actually do in the room with a client. Scary, but true! You can rest assured this is not the case with me. You will come to understand that I value personal and professional integrity. I make every effort to convey warmth and caring while assisting you on your journey to knowing yourself better and becoming the best "you" that you can be. Dealing with depression, anxiety, stage of life issues, illness, loss, difficulty trusting your decisions, fluctuating self esteem, relationship struggles (work/family/friends/significant others)? You are taking an important first step by investing in your wellness through therapy. Let's understand your experiences better and work toward developing happiness. I work with adults of all ages, but offer special focus on older adults and the LGBTQAI+ community.
