PoP Culture Meet Alison Pidgeon
private practice consultant how to start a private practice

Here’s how Alison describes herself:

I am a solution focused counselor who loves to help people achieve tangiable results during the course of their work with me.

I have been working in various aspects in the mental health field since 2003. My work has covered inpatient units, day hospitals, specialized behavior modification programs for children, and outpatient settings.

I graduated from Immaculata University with a master’s degree in Counseling Psychology in 2007 and in 2009 I earned my license as a professional counselor (LPC) in the state of Pennsylvania. I now serve as a supervisor for other therapists who are working on earning their license.

The best part of my job is watching my clients learn and make positive changes in their lives. Everyone has a fascinating story about this journey we call life and I’m humbled to be able to hear them. My goal is to make everyone in my office feel comfortable to tell their story, no matter their religion, creed, ethnicity, race, or sexual orientation.

Fun facts about me:

1) I have traveled to 21 countries on 5 continents.

2) I have 2 boys, ages 1 and 3 1/2 who keep me pretty busy!

3) If I didn’t become a counselor, I probably would have been an interior designer.

4) Baking and cooking are my therapy.

5) Ever since I was a kid I wanted to run my own business, so having my own private practice is a dream come true for me!
