Senior Therapist

I enjoy and value our sessions and she always leaves me thinking about and processing things in new ways. I have seen strong progress on the issues I came to therapy to work out, and I would highly recommend her.

Alyson is such a great listener and you can tell she genuinely cares. wonderful bedside manner and always gives you something to think about after each session. She makes you feel comfortable and safe, and never judgmental.

She's super attentive and you can tell she listens to everything you say. She challenges me to look at my life from different points of view. She backs up her responses through different studies and research and it's apparent she has a passion for helping others.

After earning her Bachelors degree in both Film and Psychology, Alyson went on to earn her Masters in Mental Health Counseling from City University of New York, Brooklyn College. Prior to joining Citron Hennessey, Alyson was with the John Jay College of Criminal Justice Wellness Center providing therapy to a diverse population of clientele. While there, she received trauma, veteran, and LGBTQ safe zone trainings with emphasis on cultural sensitivity in the therapeutic space.

Alyson has experience working with a broad range of issues including: depression, general and social anxiety, bereavement, self-esteem, and life transitions. Primarily, her strengths and focus are on treating romantic relational issues, eating disorders, and working with new parents post-partum. Alyson believes in creating a strong client-therapist relationship built on openness and understanding. She approaches treatment with an integrative style encompassing Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioral and Relational techniques to treat issues from multiple angles. Her goal-oriented approach and compassionate demeanor help to facilitate the desired outcomes and transformation clients seek.
