Allison Green is a psychologist practicing in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, who helps adults overcome the emotional hurdles that forestall their ability to move forward in life.
Who I am:
My name is Allison Green, and I've been practicing psychotherapy in Dartmouth since 2006.
I have a Ph.D. in Psychology from Dalhousie University, and am a member of the Nova Scotia Board of Examiners in Psychology, and of the Association of Psychologists of Nova Scotia. I practice individual, couples, and group psychotherapy for adults here at Allison Green Therapy.
Clients come to me for various reasons. Some arrive suffering from depression and anxiety. Others voice concerns about a pattern of poor life choices.
Many feel powerless and emotionally overwhelmed, and are simply unable to move forward in their lives in a positive way.
What is psychotherapy?
By definition, psychotherapy is the treatment of mental or emotional disorder by psychological means.
It helps patients understand what makes them feel the way they do, so that they can better address negative feelings and thoughts, and cultivate positive ones.
Learning to identify your feelings and thought processes will ultimately help you deal with difficult situations with equanimity.
The process of therapy provokes lasting, positive change. I help my clients work toward living their best and most authentic lives through self-compassion and reflection.
When can psychotherapy be used?

- Loss (grief)
- Relationship Conflicts
- Role Transitions (becoming a parent, or a caregiver)
- Stress & PTSD
