About Me

Hello,
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist licensed in California and Arizona with over 11 years of experience working as a therapist and social worker. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, ADHD, substance abuse, trauma, autism, and development delays, foster care, and the jail/prison population. I have 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. I believe in a straightforward approach to therapy with the use of cognitive-behavioral and solution focused orientation. I believe that everyone has the ability to make changes with support and guidance.
I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek services 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 work part time for BetterHelp, so my hours are typically as followed: Monday/ Thursday 6am to 8 am, and 7pm to 10 pm, Friday 6am to 10 am, Saturday and Sundays 7am to 2 pm.

I look forward to working with you!
Allison Gentz, LMFT

Allison is great! She works hard to make me feel at ease. I can share anything with her without fear of judgment. I appreciate the time we have together because she really listens.
