ABOUT ALLISON TYLER, LCSW
Allison Tyler has developed a unique style of teaching new skills, strategies and tools to children, adolescents and adults with ADHD. She currently conducts teletherapy sessions for teens., adults and parents who are looking to strengthen executive function skills or parenting skills.
In her work with children, teens and adults with ADHD, Allison has recognized the frustration that many people feel when they are labeled negatively for their condition. She works as an advocate for those with ADHD by working collaboratively with schools, professionals and the medical community to change the view of ADHD and to promote better understanding. Allison has also developed her own specific approach using a blend of cognitive behavioral, motivational and psychoeducational techniques. Allison believes that treating deficits in executive function skills by teaching new coping strategies supports growth and builds confidence.
Sometimes you just need a therapist who gets it. Well, as a mother of a child with ADHD, Allison Tyler understands the struggles of raising a child who has deficits in problem solving. She has been in the trenches, has experienced the meltdowns and she has seen the value in collaborative work with her family.
Allison has worked in private practice throughout her career constantly honing her clinical skills but has also worked in many clinical and administrative different capacities which has helped round out her training and broaden her professional perspective. While at CPNJ (now Pillar Care Continuum) she served as Program Director for a multidisciplinary team that provided outpatient services to a population of children and teens with multiple disabilities, has worked in the public school setting, and worked abroad in London for three years.
