Get to know Allison Yambor

Ever since grade school, I remember having a deep appreciation for others’ “stories”.  I was often moved at the emotional experiences of others and remember wanting the opportunity to connect and possibly help.  I knew I wanted to make a difference in people’s lives and pursued social work in college.  I discovered my passion for helping and supporting others on their personal journeys has only grown over the years.  I have always felt, and very much continue to feel, that  it is my honor and pleasure to work in this field with wonderful clients.
