When I called Shannon i left her a message and she called me back within 10 minutes. Shannon scheduled an appointment with me the very next day. Shannon is excellent in the field of counseling. I will use her again and I will highly recommend her to other people.

I chose TJ Walsh Counseling after carefully reviewing a select number of therapists I found either through my doctor's referral or my own research. TJ is someone I knew prior to entering a therapist-client relationship, so part of me felt secure with that, but upon entering this new experience, we put our former knowledge aside and started fresh. TJ is very attentive and listens closely which helped him give me a synopsis of what I was saying to him. I felt confident that he truly was understanding what I was articulating and not once did he shame me or tell me I was wrong in my emotions. His friendly demeanor made it easy to just open up and he was very willing to explore multiple ways to help me help myself. He was very thorough and concise with providing information I needed to know. I have name-dropped him to a few friends already who expressed a need for a therapist and will continue to do so based on my positive experience.
After seeing a copious amount of mental health professionals, I’ve finally found my match! I've been to many different therapists over the course of my life and tried a number of therapeutic modalities however, unsuccessful for the reason I was not receiving any results. I assumed I was strong enough to handle painful life journeys w\out any help. With having trust issues & being betrayed by people, I knew I had to navigate through this thing called life on my own. With no warnings, more issues added that were out of my control. No words could describe my pain nor the drastic painful changes I had to accept. Came to the conclusion I was being delusional w/myself assuming I didn’t need help. People I assumed cared about me couldn’t help me even if they wanted to. I became desperate and no longer wanted to suffer!!! I knew if I wanted to be around for my daughter along w/making sure she didn’t walk in my footsteps, I had to get a village around the two of us. I knew that I had a task ahead of me: finding a new therapist and psychiatrist that I could connect w\and w\a practice that wouldn’t give me an appointment 2 to 3 month out. Googled therapist near me and read over 20 or so bio’s and expertise. With me being picky and cautious, I narrowed my search to 4 people in mind. Out of the 4 I called Dr. Alston. Less than an hour, she called me back. Not a receptionist or intake department, the actual person I would share my deepest secrets with. She & I spoke on the phone and I told her briefly my situation along w/hard issues w/money. I told her what I could afford since she works on a sliding scale and we agreed upon a rate. When I first started seeing her, I was in emotional agony. I could barely articulate my words or function due to my stress level. I was mentally & physically jaded. I went through a major transition in my life which left me full of fear, anger, and hopelessness. Of course, I was nervous sharing a lot of me yet she remained stoic & concerned. Not at all did I leave the way I felt when I arrived!!! I myself was surprised. From that day on, I see her once a week. Actually, twice a week. My daughter has her own therapy sessions as well & once a month we have a session together. What I love about Dr. Alston · No waiting or seeing other clients · Have evening hours and available Saturdays & Sundays 😊 · Front door parking · She works w/my budget · Not only is she working w/me, she’s working w/my daughter whom by the way reminds me of her appointments · Tranquil environment w/welcoming aroma · Safe Zone · It’s an investment in my daughter & I future · Her unparalleled approach has changed my daughter & I relationship 😊 · She has helped me w/resources I never knew existed & go above & beyond Even though she is empathetic, she isn’t afraid to call me out when she feels like something isn’t healthy for me. It might take some trial & error finding the right therapist/psychology for yourself or family yet the process can make a profound difference in your life!!! Though still in progress, Dr. Alston along w/me wanting help for my daughter & I have taken me from lost to SOLID! So many misconceptions abound about what it means to talk to a mental health professional. The need to talk about your emotions is seen as something to poke fun at, weak or shameful. After many failed attempts, I assumed this to be true until I found Dr. Alston. Sorry for the long review yet she has changed my life!!!! Understand, I’m a very private person & for me to find time & write a review is a big deal. I must thank God for answering my prayers through some painful tears just when I was giving up. Through Him, He has giving my daughter & I peace of mind by uniting us w\Dr. Alston. Something w/in told me to write down a review on my experience yet I shared more than I anticipated. Nonetheless, I hope someone reads it & know to never give up on searching for your right match. It has taken me over 20 years to find the right one. THANK YOU, Alston & Associates Counseling & Psychotherapy!
Frank is very easy to talk to. Felt like we clicked right away. Highly recommend Frank for couples counseling
I have worked with Braco over the past seven years. He was my instructor for a Dale Carnegie and Institute of Advance Human Performance master classes. I also benefited greatly from taking advantage of one on one consulting. Braco directly impacted my professional development with public speaking, leadership, and continually pushing the limits of my comfort zone. He has impacted my personal development with tools to form better habits and increased emotional intelligence. I have seen a return on investment with my counseling and coaching from Braco that has led to promotions, deep and lasting professional relationships, and being an effective leader in my organization. -Paul M.

Working with Aliaunda has been nothing but a joy! Her demeanor, soft spoken voice and attentiveness is crucial and plays a part in our success. She is not only a great person! But she is dedicated and driven to her clients. With her vast knowledge, she has equipt my son with valuable coping skills that enable him to self sooth and calm himself down without becoming more agitated. Working with her has also played an important part with allowing and helping my son to communicate his feelings through her as he is sooo comfortable. We love Aliunda and are so glad that we are able to work with her! 😌😌
As noted by the award-winning nationally and regionally recognized correspondent, television and radio host Jim Masters (of PBS and Close-Up Talk Radio), "effective therapy requires a combination of compassion, skill set and education level, as well as a safe environment in order for clients to share their feelings", and "nowhere is that more true" than with Bill Dougherty. Furthermore, Jim points out that Dougherty "provides a client-centered approach....and I love when I hear that phrase, client-centered ....its all about you, its not one size fits all, it's tailored to you..." With a background in English literature as well as Psychology, I am unique in that I bring a decidedly postmodern perspective to my therapeutic approach. One of the concepts that i utilize is known as Narrative Therapy. The use of this technique encourages and compassionately challenges people to be mindful of the story they’re telling themselves to better utilize their strengths. The words we choose to use can help manifest the changes we hope to bring about. The idea is to encourage the use of more positive words as opposed to negative words. This personalized approach has proven remarkably effective in helping people confront the challenges of their lives to bring about lasting and meaningful change.
I offer family and marriage counseling. In counseling, we will work together with a common-sense approach, using simple strategies to solve your relationship and communication problems. Through the years, I have found great success in counseling by the process of mediation. It is less confrontational and invasive than traditional counseling. I have had tremendous success with couples who truly commit to the process.
We offer Christian marriage counseling, wedding officiant, baby dedication, etc. We are people who operate in love.
