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!
9/2011 my little girl about to be 17 years old was driving at a speed of around 35 and avoided a deer and hit a tree and did not survive the accident three days later. I have been married 31 years with one son and one daughter in heaven. My wife is a great mother and her pain is deep in very big way and let most of her frustrations out on me in a very very big way and my son did the same! My son did some counseling with Andrea and I started also afterwards to try my best to repair my relationships with him and my wife. It has been over four years now and there have been some big strides in an improved relationships with my son and wife, working with Andrea has been a blessing she has done an outstanding job in helping me with this. If there is anyone that would need help with counseling I would highly recommend them to work with Andrea! Thank Andrea, Bill
Pastor Clay has been a wonderful counselor for me.He listened intently my problems and has never failed in helping me find a solution. I recommend him to any one who is having a tough time and is at a crossroads in life. His advice, support, and guidance helped me go to the next level of my life. I am grateful to God for Pastor Clay."
Had acupuncture with Lydia - was very helpful for my mobility and easing some of the pain.
Jared is very insightful and intuitive when he gives suggestions and guidance. He is able to see through all of the noise and identify what is really important. He singles out that one thing I have not yet considered that opens my eyes to a new possibility and solution. Jared does this in a way that does not feel like counseling or therapy. When speaking about personal issues there is always a sense of non-judgment and understanding. He has helped me turn my life around and start making the decisions I should have been making years ago. Jared has impacted my life like no other has and continues to help me keep focused on my thoughts and actions in order to achieve my goals.
Kelly is excellent both as a health coach and a fitness teacher. She is accepting of different body sizes and a very compassionate person.
Caitlin comes to my home to provide personal training for my 8 year old daughter. She has been coming every week for about 6 months. She is always on time! And she has never had to cancel a scheduled session. Her work with my daughter is just fantastic. She is energetic, fun, encouraging AND; totally hip and cool. My daughter loves to exercise with her and share stories about her life with her. Her self- esteem and confidence has sky rocketed since working with Caitlin. I would recommend hiring Caitlin to work with you or anyone you know or love beyond any doubt! She is amazing!
Amazing clinical support, consultation and supervision. I received supervision and exam advice in preparation for the LCSW test. I cannot say enough about Kelly's engaging style and knowledge base. Highly recommended!
Jennifer has been a tremendous help to me over the years. She has helped me create the life I've wanted and I've developed into a real leader in the workplace, and in my personal relationships. She not only provides individual and group therapy, she also conducts fun workshops and cultural community events. I recently went to a workshop that she gave on improv and was reminded how important it is to listen and respond to others in my life in a creative and positive manner. Her guidance has helped me take on challenges in a real way and materially changed how I live my life...for the better! I highly recommend Jennifer and the Philadelphia Center for Social Therapy to help you with your relationships, life coaching and improving your life.
