Ali Ambroso

Ali Ambroso, MA, LPC

My focus is on helping clients stop suffering through integrating their pain or trauma. Everyone handles life experiences and situations differently, and often we aren’t prepared to effectively handle the emotional consequences. Whether your pain has been the result of adverse experiences over a lengthy period of time or a more recent painful experience, you deserve to take the time and explore what counseling has to offer you. I use a collaborative approach to therapy with my emphasis on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I am also trained in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

I have an emphasis on working with families adjusting to change and finding effective ways for each family member to cope. I see clients in our Menasha office.
