Alison Muyskens, MDiv, LICSW

Psychotherapist in Boston, MA

I have been helping others actualize themselves for more than 30 years, and my passion lies in promoting and integrating psychotherapy with spirituality. Weaving these two modalities of healing together leads to transformation that affects not only one’s greater inner peace, but also creates an outer sense of well-being in, and connectedness to, the world.

What might be a fearful, intimidating journey for some, is lessened by the presence of a trained and experienced therapist. My clinical experience as both a therapist and a healer continues to awaken in me the importance of discovering, acknowledging and integrating one’s Spiritual Self. I have arrived at this place in my practice — the power of Spirit — as a result of completing my Masters in both Divinity and Social Work, and my immersion in the transformative model of therapy called Internal Family Systems Theory (IFS) that I use with my clients — individuals, couples, groups, clergy and other IFS therapists.

In conjunction with my educational background, my own personal healing journey, and IFS, I hold the belief that Spirit, that place where one finds meaning or a deep sense of belonging, is a life-changing addition to the therapeutic model.

In my telehealth practice, either video or phone sessions, I incorporate this approach as I work with clients in a warm, safe and inclusive space. I invite you to learn more about my practice and welcome the opportunity to support you on your journey of self-discovery.

Alison’s MDiv is one of the things that drew me to her practice initially and her seamless integration of spirituality and mental health has been an incredible blessing to me. While encouraging my own spiritual practice and authenticity, Alison has helped me become a better pastor, partner, parent, person. My work with Alison has been life changing, heart opening, and soul embracing and I am so grateful for her.
