Allison Lobel, Psy.D.

Director of Child & Adolescent Services


Dr. Allison Lobel has an extensive background working with children, adolescents, and families.

Dr. Lobel follows a developmental and relational approach to understanding and addressing the underlying difficulties people can experience throughout their lives. She believes in the adage that a family is only as happy as its unhappiest member, so she strives to support parents and help them understand their child better.
