meet dr. allison

I’m Dr. Allison.  I’m a licensed clinical psychologist, and I’ve made it my life mission to simplify psychology, helping you live the healthy and meaningful life you totally deserve.

Life throws out some pretty tough stuff.  And while you don’t always get a say in what life throws your way, you absolutely have a say in how you respond.  And that’s where I come in.  As a psychologist, I’ve got the inside scoop on real, practical, and research-backed tips for how to make the most out of your life.

I find a balance between the science and the practical, making content completely relevant to your everyday life. If you want to tackle anxiety, improve relationships, increase happiness, and be courageous, this is the place for you!

So pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee, and get ready.  You’ve got one shot at this thing called life, so let’s help you make the most of it!
