Alison Teal, MA, MFT


Alison has been a licensed psychotherapist (MFT21594) since 1986, as well as an Internationally Certified EMDRIA Therapist and Consultant. For over 30 years, she has presented lectures and workshops on healing and personal empowerment in the United States and abroad.

Passionate about people, Alison began her professional life as a Special Education teacher for severely emotionally disturbed children and adolescents. In 1994, she founded and directed Creative Explorations, a school for the study of psyche and soul through art. In addition to her direct work with clients, Alison taught graduate level psychology at Saint Mary’s College for 14 years. Her work is informed by somatic and ego state psychology. A long-time meditator, Alison integrates Buddhist principles and mindfulness practices into all of her work.

As a Certified Change and Transition Strategist in the Moffitt Method, she offers remote individual and couple sessions, as well as online and in-person workshops. Her focus in her work with her clients and students is providing goal-oriented support for achieving life balance and manifesting their personal and professional visions. After many decades of observing the strengths and weaknesses of other personal growth methodologies, she developed “Super Resourcing”: a time-efficient and personally restorative protocol that facilitates the navigation of life changes through clarification of purpose and the neurological integration of one’s authentic nature.

Alison has been a life-long artist, and her approach to all her endeavors is inherently creative. She believes in the indomitability of the human spirit and that we are all capable of transforming old patterns and self-limiting beliefs.
