A Note From Ali

I wanted to become a therapist because I have always felt drawn to people and connection. I feel incredibly privileged to be trusted with the life stories and vulnerabilities of the people I meet, while also having the ability to offer support and guidance. My personal therapy style is best described as warm, genuine, and candid.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time by the lake, as I find it incredibly grounding and healing.  I also love spending time with family, friends, and my little dachshund puppy, Finley!

Ali is fully remote as a therapist doing online therapy for clients anywhere in Illinois.
