About me

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!

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

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.

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.

Work with me!
