Unsolicited Praise for Allison Gilbert, LMFT

"I am so lucky to have found you.  I feel like myself for the first time in ages.  What a relief it is to know I have the resources to handle the things life throws my way!"


"I owe you BIG TIME for being my mentor and guide through this horrendous period in my life. Your compassion, understanding and humility were instrumental in getting me through. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!"


"Here's a list of several things you've helped me with this year!

-You taught me how to say no, and more importantly, that it is ok to say no.

-You helped me realize that I have feelings too! Not just everyone else in my life.

-You taught me that it's ok to spend my own money w/in reason. This has helped me tremendously.

-You forced me to look at my family and upbringing in ways I had never thought about. I think that has helped me to better understand myself and many of my actions.

-You've taught me to be less hard on myself.

-You taught me that it's ok to be angry! (and how to resolve it when I am)

-You have helped me learn how to communicate better with my mom.

-You have helped me find more balance and have helped me realize that it's ok to relax (what I used to think was wasting time)."

Email Advising - Support that Fits Your Schedule

Email advising decreases isolation and provides a convenience that the phone just can't. You can start by emailing me here: [email protected]


  • Fast - Email a question or concern and get an answer within 24-48 hours.
  • AccessibleGet support anytime you need it.
  • Cost Effective - It costs less than an office visit and you don't have to get a babysitter.
  • Time Efficient -  You never have to leave home and can do this on your own time.
  • Convenient - It can be particularly convenient if you have young children and little time to think until the end of the day when your home is quiet. It's also great for those who find it challenging to leave the house or don't live near a professional who has the particular specialty that they are looking for. 
Composing an email can be a way to collect your thoughts while analyzing and reflecting on your situation in a calm way at whatever time of day works for you. Sometimes the process of writing about your own dilemmas can be healing in and of itself. Email also allows for personal self-reflection. Writing can clarify problems and make them more real as you see them in black and white in front of you. As you reread what you have written, you can learn more about yourself and develop new insights and solutions regarding the situations you are trying to cope with.

Email Advising Can Address:

  • Personal Growth - Further your personal growth, by exploring changes you wish to make or techniques for emotional well-being.
  • Major Life Changes - Gain extra guidance for life transitions, mid-life crises, career changes or loneliness.
  • Decisions - Access support when you're facing difficult decisions or adjustments.
  • Parenting - Request advice for dealing with issues related to parenting.
  • Financial Issues - Enjoy suggestions for adapting to loss of career and income due to the need to be primary caregiver.
  • Stress - Find ways to successfully manage the stress of motherhood or other life pressures and demands.
  • Marriage - Seek guidance for improving your marriage and other family communication and relationships, including extended family.
  • New Motherhood - Gain support when you are adjusting to a new baby or recovering from giving birth.
  • Emotions - Learn how to deal with overwhelming feelings or difficult pressures in life.
  • Isolation - Break the isolation of modern day motherhood by connecting with another mother who understands what you're going through.

♥  Email Advising is not appropriate for everyone. It is not psychotherapy. It cannot attempt to diagnose or treat psychiatric illness. It is not an effective means of responding to crises such as: suicidal feelings, homicidal feelings, abuse, trauma, or acute psychiatric symptoms. If you are feeling suicidal, you need immediate support. In the USA, you can make a free call to the National Suicide Hotline at: 1-800-784-2433.  Or call Postpartum Support International's Postpartum Depression Helpline: 1-800-944-4PPD StatCounter - Free Web Tracker and Counter
