About Al

Welcome. You’ve taken a brave step toward healing just by being here. Calmness, clarity and self-acceptance are integral to our healing — all hard to find when life gets tough. I’m here to help you cultivate the life you want to live. I’ll walk with you through the difficult moments and help you celebrate the good ones!

With a firm foundation in political theory and social justice, I understand the systems that get us down. I’m not here to sell you a fix-it fairytale; I’m here to cultivate a compassionate and empowering space for you to explore and heal. Maybe you don’t feel safe being your authentic self, full-time. I want to create a space and relationship where it is safe for you to be your true self, even if just for an hour a week. There is power in being in touch with our wants and needs and speaking them out loud.

I want to help you feel at home in your body and at home in yourself. I’m a fat- positive, LGBTQIA+ affirming, kink-knowledgeable, anti-diet therapist. I’ve got a passion for issues regarding sex and sexuality, and I’m here to help you kick ass and take names.

I’m empowered by community and dedicated to self-compassion. In my free time I like to cook, fuck up the patriarchy, do queer shit, and cuddle my two precious cats.

I am clinically supervised by Neathery Falchuk, LCSW-S, CGP, and I regularly consult with other sex-positive professionals. The name listed on my state license is Alison Clifton.
