"I've had a very difficult time finding medical and mental health professionals that I feel like I can truly trust, and be myself with. Allison has quite simply been a God send.
Her approach to therapy is just what an INFJ like me has been looking for for years. She's been helping me do the hard inner work that I've needed to do, and wanted to do, but not had someone really equipped to be able to help me until I found Body Talks Therapy.
She has helped me to uncover important inner truths that I have needed to stand on, and false narratives that I need to acknowledge and reject. Meeting with her has been a deeply healing and transformative experience in the couple months that she has been doing therapy with me.
As a highly sensitive person, I feel like she really gets where I'm coming from, and sees a higher realm of perspective that I've learned a lot about myself from."
"Allison's superpower is compassion. She will shepherd you through the fires of transformation with the fiercest of love as you eventually come face-to-face with your Highest Self. Make no mistake: this alchemical journey is not for the faint of heart. I can, however, guarantee this: you'll never encounter a more skillful or unwavering guide."

"Put quite simply, Allison fundamentally changed the course of my life. I reached out to her to deal with intense anxiety and dark thoughts, but ended up improving my quality of life by nearly all measures. Social anxiety, something that has plagued me since early childhood, is now virtually non-existent. I’ve always been a creative individual, but I never had confidence in developing those talents into marketable skills. I can now ecstatically say I am making a solid living as a freelance Art Director who is constantly manifesting the opportunity to grow in directions that stimulate and inspire. My financial life is finally in a healthy place—and I am not constantly afraid of whether or not I can provide for myself. Without trying to sound like an over-the-top infomercial—therapy with Allison Brunner has been the most important investment I have made for myself—and I suspect—ever will make for myself. I don’t know what I did in my life to have been able to effortlessly stumble upon a therapist as talented and dedicated as her, but it has been a PRIVILEGE."
"Allison loves helping people reach their greatest potential. It is embedded in her soul as well as her spirit. She took great pride in counseling students at Transitional Work Corporation. She was extremely focused, and all her efforts were clearly for the greater good of the students. It is my honor to recommend Allison, for she is dedicated…where she is doing her life’s work."

"Allison's work with me has always been outstanding. If you are looking for someone to give advice forget it. Allison's superior skill is in helping you find your own answers. For example: what are your limiting beliefs that you are not aware of? She is highly skilled in helping you discover your limiting beliefs that organize your behavior and keep you stuck. I always enjoyed the work we did even when it brought up painful emotions. I felt free and light afterwards with greater self-understanding. I must add here that Allison was never judgmental. She is one of the most compassionate and loving people that I have ever known. Save yourself years by working with Allison. Get to the heart of your issues that hold you back."

"Allison is a beautiful channel of Light. I had a truly beautiful experience with her. I felt very safe and absolutely will return again. Allison has a lot to offer anyone in search of the healing and expansive benefits of Reiki."

"I found Allison online after trying therapy in my home town and feeling judged and misunderstood. The way I was perceiving life was changing rapidly and felt a little scary. Allison explained in an (remote) Energy Medicine session that I'd had a spiritual awakening. In just three sessions, she helped me realize that my experiences were cause for celebration rather than fear! She also shared some skills for using my empathic abilities to help myself and others instead of feeling overwhelmed by people."

"I have just had one of the most intense, beautiful, possibly life-altering reiki experiences with Allison. I felt healed on a deeper level by it. It just seemed we ventured so profoundly deep. I felt physically, emotionally, spiritually transformed. These, to me, sound like words I ordinarily would not be comfortable using because I do not like big claims, superlatives, any overstatements etc. It's just not my style. However, it is not an overstatement here. The experience was tender, filled with sensation, cathartic and more. I don't have words enough to truly capture it but it was truly inspirational and powerful. Allison is really a beautiful soul and uniquely, gifted, talented, trained, firey and compassionate. I have had reiki before —actually, plenty of it. But I can't say that I have ever had a better reiki session or felt in more competent reiki hands."
"Allison is such a wise woman, she intuitively knew what I needed and where to focus in our Reiki session. Her insight after the session was also very validating as to my experience. After our session I felt like all the fear I had been experiencing from a recent trauma was completely wiped out! Which I was not expecting from one session! I can't speak highly enough about the healing powers of Allison Brunner."
