Alison Bluestein

I am a licensed social worker specializing in working with adolescents and young adults from a variety of backgrounds and lived experiences. I have worked in schools, inpatient, residential, and day treatment programs, as well as outpatient settings. My objective is to collaborate with my clients to identify goals for our work together and to provide a safe and nurturing environment to do that work. My intention is to firmly root our process in my clients’ strengths while exploring, validating, and gently challenging perceived obstacles. I approach my work from a trauma-informed and systems lens; examining how our life experiences and environments have shaped who we have become and the skills we need to navigate our futures. I love learning more about the individuals and families with whom I work and getting to be a compassionate partner in your growth journey.
