When not helping her clients, Allison is a busy mom of two daughters. You can find her gardening, swimming, and running or walking with her family and beloved dog, Rio. As a neuropsychologist, her interests always include brain-behavior relationships and the new discoveries about functional neuroanatomy through clinically relevant neuroscience research. She welcomes your inquiries. 

“As a clinician, my goal is to offer the best tools and support possible to help clients reach their potential, in and outside of school or work. It’s a joy to get to know each child, teen, and adult patient in my practice as we work together toward a positive impact on their future.”
