Greetings! My name is Allison and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for the state of Georgia and a Licensed Independent Social Worker for the state of Ohio. I have obtained a bachelors degree in Social Work from Johnson C. Smith University, a masters degree in social work from Georgia State University and a masters degree in family therapy from Mercer University. I have over 6 years of clinical experience in providing trauma-informed therapy to individuals, couples, and families with a variety of psychiatric, relational, and situational needs and concerns which include grief and loss, issues with depression and anxiety, bipolar disorder, and trauma.
My therapeutic style consists of meeting and approaching people where they are in their varying situations. I have an open-minded, non-judgmental approach to therapy in which I work to view issues and concerns from a non-pathologizing standpoint. I mainly center around systemic and strengthening based therapies that are drawn from Cognitive Behavioral, Dialectical Behavioral and Solution Focused Therapies .
In my spare time, I enjoy reading, exercising, traveling, watching "reality television", and spending time with friends and family.
Life changes and transitions happen to all of us. Sometimes, we need someone to talk with to help better understand, process, and cope with things that are beyond our control. It is my hope that as you move through these changes and experiences, you will consider working with someone who is devoted to understanding what makes you uniquely YOU.
- Stress, Anxiety
- Trauma and abuse
I also have experience in Addictions, LGBT, Relationship, Grief, Intimacy-related, Parenting, Anger, Self esteem, Career, Bipolar

Allison is patient and thorough in our conversations. She is very timely with her responses. I appreciate her attention to detail, compassion, and her ability to ask all the right questions. I'm looking forward to continuing my counseling sessions with her.
Allison was incredibly helpful during a traumatic moving experience this summer where I was unemployed and deeply depressed, changing religious beliefs and overcoming drug addiction. With her help I was able to obtain a job, have difficult and meaningful conversations with my husband and loved ones, as well as stay sober in tough times. She is incredibly supportive and comforting, yet gives tough love and asks the hard questions that need to be asked in order to glean insight into a person's thoughts. I would recommend this site and Allison's service to anyone experiencing suffering!
I have not had much time to evaluate but she is doing a great job!
Allison is a very experienced and knowledgeable counselor. She has tremendous insight into the things that are bothering you and has great suggestions to help you see through your problems. I enjoy working with her.
