Ali has been working to help her clients overcome difficulties and challenges in private practice as a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Creative Arts Therapist since 2004. She works with children, adolescents, adults, couples and families in a supportive and strength-based framework, helping her clients identify and work through whatever may be holding them back from manifesting their best selves.

With previous experience as a school therapist and interactive family play therapist, coupled with her degrees in Creative Arts Therapy, Marriage and Family Therapy, as well as her training in EMDR, Ali's therapeutic approach has a strong and knowledgeable foundation. Her work with couples is informed by Emotionally Focused Therapy, the work of John Gottman & Esther Perel.
