Hello, thank you for visiting my page. My name is Amy Allen, a licensed Marriage and Family therapist with over 15 years' experience in the Mental Health Field. I currently work with a diverse group of clients seeking assistance for depression, anxiety, homelessness, grief, loss parenting, life skills, as well as those looking to improve their lives by learning skills to navigate this ever-changing world. Change is difficult and I know, we need motivation and encouragement to help reach our goals and improve relationships.
I graduated from California State University at Dominguez Hills with a Master of Arts in Behavioral Science and a concentration in Negotiation and Conflict Resolution and a Master of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy and have been licensed since 2015.
My passion is helping people improve their lives which I feel could be attributed to much of my own life experience, education and being able to identify with clients. My goal is to assist in providing real life solutions to current barriers to living your best life I have been trained in and utilize CBT, DBT, Motivational interviewing, Solution Focused Therapy and EMDR.

Amy is funny, personable and therapeutic all at the same time. She lets you know that she understands you and doesn’t just give advice
Amy is candid and great!
In the short time I have been working with Amy, I have appreciated the check ins and quick responses to my concerns of the day/week. She is very respectful and knowledgeable in her replies. It's appreciated highly.
Amy is awesome. She makes you feel very comfortable. It's just like having a conversation. Amy is very quick with great suggestions & techniques. As someone who has had a number of therapist, I'm truly glad to have found Amy.
Amy is encouraging and an amazing listener. She remembers important details about our conversation and follows up on things previously discussed. Thanks, Amy.
I have never been to a therapy before in my life and didn’t know what to expect from a therapist. Amy was amazing. She listened, didn’t judge me, provided very helpful suggestions on how to reduce my anxiety. She really understood what I was going through and didn’t dismiss any of my feelings and emotions. She followed up with me, guided me, and gave me very helpful exercises to reduce my stress due to traumatic experience I had. I am very grateful to her.
Amy is very caring and empathetic she listens well and gives alot of resources to help. She is very positive and easy to talk to.
I look forward to weekly sessions with Amy. She is down to earth, listens well, and offers great solutions. I love how responsive she is.
She’s amazing! She listens and really understands what I’m saying! If something doesn’t work for me she finds another technique to try! She really is doing an amazing job at trying to find what works best for me!
I feel so much better after just two sessions with Amy. She gave me tools and help moving forward with family dynamics. I’m really grateful and can’t wait to continue my sessions with her.
I appreciate Amy’s compassionate demeanor. She is a great listener and also very quick at responding to messages. It’s really nice to have a therapist who truly listens and validates you.
I find Amy very easy to talk to. I feel she really understands me. It's like I'm talking to a good friend.
