TJ was understanding & nurturing without coddling me & my destructive thoughts. He taught me a lot about what was going on in my life & why my mindset was the way that it was - yet he allowed me to arrive at my own conclusions & learn my own lessons. He's truly found the perfect balance between counselor & friend. Making sure that I was aware that my behavior & thought patterns were normal & valid, he encouraged me to lead a healthier life &, without hesitation, shared the steps that I would need to accomplish that. I'm incredibly thankful to have done my physical & mental health a favor by coming to him & I'd gladly recommend TJ to anyone who's looking to make some positive changes to their perspective & self awareness.
I have struggled with anxiety and depression my entire life. I was so anxious about my first appointment at Growth thru Change. They informed me that I could come in for FREE session to meet my therapist and see if its a good fit. Walking into the office I knew immediately that this was the right place, its so welcoming and cozy. I have been working individually with a therapist as well as attending their mental health group for a few months. I have noticed a decrease in anxiety and depression. I am starting to feel better and get my life back on track. Thank you Growth thru Change.
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!
