Allison Heiliczer is a counsellor and psychotherapist from New York City who joined Annerley after her pregnancy and the birth of her child was aided by the wonderful women at Annerley six years ago.

Allison is passionate about working with both individuals and couples. She works with women and men navigating the decision to have a baby; fertility treatments; miscarriages and stillbirths; postnatal depression and anxiety; challenges at work and in relationships; and cultural challenges.

Allison is also deeply passionate about working with couples. She is committed to understanding the unique language each couple speaks, and her work with couples far extends beyond improving communication – she works towards building a solid team. She has specialty training working with couples deciding whether to marry, how relationships change after having a baby, working through trauma, affairs, and addictions; deciding whether to divorce; and cross-cultural couples.

In addition to her counselling work, Allison also teaches helper workshops and consults employers on the hiring and training of helpers.
