About Alison

For as long as I can remember, I have been drawn to the study of the soul, the spirit and seeking a deeper meaning of the Truth about life.

I have a passion to study, guide and connect with others about the metaphysical and spiritual depths of our being and non-dualistic nature.

It is in the presence of our true essence where the truth lies within and we are set free.


Initially, I studied business and psychology in my undergraduate degree as I desired to bring psychology, the study of the soul, into the business world. In the first decade of my career, I served in sales management for a US Fortune top 50 corporate company and found it lacked the altruism I desired.

After beginning a family, I pivoted and went back to school to earn my master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and became a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in Maine, USA.

Since 2006, I have had the pleasure of serving others in my private psychotherapy practice, based in Portland, Maine. During that time, I became an AASECT Certified Sex Therapist, an Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapist, Level 3 trained, and Rhythm of Regulation (polyvagal) practitioner.

In the fall of 2020, I followed a knowing and closed my psychotherapy practice to take a spiritual sabbatical.

Though I enjoyed my work and loved my clients, intuitively I knew there were other things I was meant to advance beyond the scope of the more traditional psychotherapy practices. It was a beautiful pause, which led me to study with the Institute for Intuitive Intelligence, based in Melbourne, Australia. I am a certified Intuitive Intelligence Trainer and a Spiritual Director in the post-graduate program. I am excited to be bringing this exceptional, science-based model of spirituality and intuition into my practice.

I am grateful and love my life.

I’ve created a life where my work is my pleasure and what I study and explore in my own journey. I love being married to my long-time love, living on the coast of Maine with our sons, and enjoy the beautiful four seasons of New England, lakes, and mountains. I adore spending time with my dear family and loved ones, practicing yoga, walks in nature and exploring mystical sites around the world.


Education + Training

In my work with others, I incorporate a variety of outstanding healing modalities I have studied over the years. I continue to grow and evolve and am always bringing what I learn into my sessions. My work is my pleasure and grounded in spirituality, the science of intuition, neuroscience, polyvagal theory, and attachment theory.

I have been serving clients in private practice since January 2006. Currently, my professional trainings in Intuitive Intelligence (the science of consciousness and intuition), Internal Family Systems (IFS), and the Rhythm of Regulation / polyvagal theory (neuroscience and the brain), and Spiritual Attachment Therapy form the foundation for the philosophy of my practice.

My office is located in Portland, Maine, which was settled on the traditional territory of the Wabanaki Confederacy.

I recognize and honor the Wabanaki Confederacy, the People of the First Light, the Penobscot, Passamaquoddy, Maliseet, and Micmac peoples, who have stewarded this land throughout the generations. I respect their traditional values and affirm their inherent sovereignty in this territory. I support their efforts for land and water protection and restoration, and for cultural healing and recovery.

May we pause in remembrance of the lives and land taken through genocidal strategies of the colonial settlement of this land.

I pay respect to elders both past, present, and emerging, and I commit to the ongoing work of decolonization in Maine and beyond.
