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)."

Benefits of Phone Counseling

Phone Counseling

I like to provide phone counseling to my clients as a convenient option for those who find it difficult to get to an office.  This can be especially useful for stay at home moms.  It's also more cost effective than face-to-face counseling.


Benefits of Phone Counseling:

Time - Minimizes the time required to get to/from a counseling office.

- Kids get sick frequently, making scheduling an office visit challenging.

- You can avoid the cost or inconvenience of hiring a sitter.

Confidentiality - There is a certain anonymity and privacy provided by the phone

Ease - Some people are home-bound or live far from Santa Cruz.

  Everyone's situation is unique, and sometimes phone counseling isn't an appropriate mode of therapy. Allison Gilbert will make an assessment of this during your first contact. If she determines that Phone Counseling isn't right for you, then she will help you find another source of support. If you live outside of her local area, she is not equipped to offer you help over the phone for crises such as: suicidal feelings, homicidal feelings, physical/sexual abuse, trauma, or acute psychiatric symptoms. If you are feeling suicidal or homicidal, you need immediate support. In the USA, you can make a free call to the National Suicide Hotline at: 1-800-784-2433
