About me


My name is Allie and I am a mental health counselor (LPCC) licensed in Ohio. I have been in the mental health field for over 6 years and recently also acquired my Health Coach certificate in July of 2020. I have worked in multiple types of settings (hospital, community mental health, and private practice) and with a wide range of mental health concerns. Most notably, I specialize in working with individuals who have anxiety, OCD, trauma, depression, relationship issues, life stressors, and grief.

My philosophy towards counseling is that each of my clients holds the potential to achieve mental wellness and relief from any mental health struggles. My aim is to create a safe environment for all clients to feel heard, cared for, and respected. I combine cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), trauma-informed care, and motivational interviewing to best fit the needs of my clients.

Outside of being a counselor, I am a firm believer in self-care and try to practice what I preach by incorporating joyful movement, spending time with my two pups (Izzie and Arlo), exploring the outdoors in the beautiful NE Ohio, and trying new recipes in the kitchen.

The hardest part in starting therapy is starting and you have already accomplished this! I hope you can continue your mental health journey with me as your counselor.

Alli listens to me without judgement and offers me healthy coping techniques when I ask for them. I feel entirely comfortable talking to her in confidentiality about any issue I may be having, no matter how private.

Alexandra has been a fantastic therapist. She really listens to me and advocates for me. I feel like she has given me a place to talk, process, and grow as a person. I was hesitant about online therapy but we meet virtually every week which has been great. It allows for a real connect while also offering a lot of flexibility.

I was matched with Alexandrea under my general issues assessment. She dived right in very optimistic to help my goals. My journals partially guided her straight to my trouble spots even while defining my main goals. She was very easy to work with and accommodating to schedule. She knew the proper ways to guide me into a better path for myself while making sure I was strong and ready. I feel I'm doing so much better in my life and guided in the best direction. If I ever felt so lost again I would seek her out first.
