NYC Therapist Alison Pepper is a practicing bilingual therapist for 5 years, SIFI certified and meditation teacher.
Alison has over 5 years of experience working with English and Spanish speaking clients in NYC. She treats children, tweens, teens, emerging adults, adults, couples, and families who may be adjusting to life changes or dealing with mental health issues; with an emphasis on trauma informed work. Alison is interested in taking an integrative approach to therapy by combining clients needs with traditional Western psychology such as: talk therapy, play therapy, art therapy, internal family systems, and nature therapy with ancient Eastern traditions such as Tibetan Buddhism and Yoga.
I believe all people have the tools to heal ourselves; grow, learn, and reach our full potential. No matter what your age or life circumstances therapy is a safe space to do that work.
