Allison Noone

Hi, I'm Allie and I am a licensed social worker (LSW). I received my master's in social work from Marywood University and undergraduate degree in psychology from York College of Pennsylvania. I strongly believe that no one is a better expert in their own lives than themselves- even when some situations lack clarity. Therefore, one of my primary objectives when working with clients is to aid the process of self-discovery and enhance self-awareness. As an LSW, I strive to provide a confidential and safe place where, together, we can work to improve personal insight and establish consistent coping skills that can be utilized in real life situations. I have experience working with adolescents and adults who have been touched by addiction, family conflict, trauma, abuse, loss, depression, anxiety and other mood disorders. I utilize an eclectic approach, blending skills of cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and a strengths-based approach.

I have worked with all age groups ranging from 3 years old up to 70 years of age. I have worked in a variety of settings such as schools, daycare, homes, group homes, inpatient, and outpatient facilities. My goal is to help the client identify problematic behavior patterns and reflect on how experiences influence behaviors. I provide clients with a safe environment to open up about their problems. I help clients explore how the past can influence the present and identify ways to disrupt negative thinking/behaviors. I have extensive experience working with children with behavioral concerns and developmental delays.
