Hello! My name is Allison and I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor and Licensed Independent Chemical Dependency Counselor with over 10 years of experience. I completed my education at Kent State University then completed a Master of Arts from Ursuline College focusing on Art Therapy and Counseling.
Art, creativity, and personal expression play a large role in my life and I enjoy working with clients to help them find creative and personalized solutions to address their concerns. I use an eclectic approach pulling from cognitive behavioral techniques, motivational interviewing, psycho-dynamic, client focused, and solution focused therapies to help my clients find the approaches that work for them.
My counseling style is warm, caring, and collaborative, and I enjoy sharing resources, tools, and techniques with each client to aid them in addressing their concerns. I have worked with clients in a variety of settings including shelters, community outpatient, private practice, outpatient and inpatient hospital settings, jails, and prisons.
I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, mental health and psychosis, trauma and abuse, relationship issues, LGBTQIA+ concerns, substance abuse, addiction, hoarding, financial concerns, incarceration and reintegration concerns.
I believe in providing open, honest, compassionate, non-judgmental regard to each individual that I work with. My clients are the experts on their lives and experiences; and my role is to support, comfort, and provide tools to help you address concerns and get better outcomes in your life.
I look forward to working with you!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Allison Petty. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Allison has saved my life in more ways than one. I don’t even write reviews usually. This app and customer service with financial aid has saved my life. I am forever grateful
I love that I have the counselor I have … Allison listens and explains things to me that I can understand
Allison has really been instrumental in helping me navigate through a rough divorce and help me discover and see things about myself that I never realized. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone needing counseling.
Allison is an absolute professional who listens to your worries and experiences helping you to better process the thoughts and emotions associated with them. I have absolutely already recommended her to friends in need of therapy!
So far my sessions have been going great, nothings forced and im able to talk about whatever I can.
Has given me some good advice. Very open-minded and even though it's only been a little over a week or so has definitely helped a bit. She is also an artist and having an interest in art myself has given me some good advice on that subject as well.
