About me

I am a licensed counselor in Arkansas with over 10 years of experience working as a psychotherapist and counselor. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, client centered, psychodynamic, and Gestalt counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Knows all the right things to say, or will just listen to you. Allen is instant comfort

Of the few sessions I’ve had with Allan so far, I have really appreciated his insight into the things we have been discussing. And he always has great resources to send me to read through and interact with in between our sessions. It’s only been a few sessions, but I look forward to working with him more to help set me on a path to better manage my anxiety and depression.

Allen is great to work with, and I am so happy to have been connected with him! I enjoy his style and I come out of our sessions eager for the next. He takes the time to make sure he understands me, and makes sure I understand him. Very easy to talk to.

Brilliant therapy companion. Turning into something of a mentor in many ways, helping me find my own right way and never telling me what to do

Written on Jun 21, 2022 after therapy with Allen for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, and intimacy-related issues

Allen is such a supportive therapist and has helped me get through some of the toughest times of my life. I don't know what I'd do without him. He is such a caring, compassionate and empathetic person who truly cares about one's needs and always offers valuable insight to help move forward. I could not be happier that I have chosen him and could not recommend him as a therapist enough!

my experience with Allen was short, a month, but the impact I had afterwards was game-changing, I am constantly remember things he said

Written on Apr 13, 2022 after therapy with Allen for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

I feel that I'm really progressing towards something with Allen, rather than hiding from my problems. Allen is helping me with through my emotional blocks, and understand myself.

Written on Feb 10, 2022 after therapy with Allen for 3 weeks on issues concerning lgbt, relationship issues, grief, and coping with life changes

I only have used Betterhelp for an initial 4 weeks because traveling afterwards would have gone in the way of talking to Allen regularly.
But Allen helped me understand my own thoughts a bit better with regards to an intense break-up I was going through.
Though I am not back at my previous self, Allen definitely helped me stabilize with his energetic readings of the situation, reflections and mirroring what I was saying. It helped to get a bit more of a realistic view on the situation and get back to what I wanted.

Thanks!

Therapy with Allen was really helpful to make me consider some elements of my life I had set aside. Allen is tremendously considerate but will let you know if something is worth digging or not. He knows his stuff and I highly recommend trying him out !

Allen is an exceptional counsellor, who goes out of his way to support and comfort his clients, while offering very helpful, practical tips and strategies, tailored to individual needs, for one to achieve their goals. Most of all he is very compassionate, and takes the time to truly listen to and validate individual concerns. I would highly recommend him!

Allen is a fabulous communicator who takes the time to listen to me and engage with what I’m saying, as well as offer direct support or advice. I can’t always talk but he’s flexible and goes the extra mile in his follow up.

Work with me!
