About Me

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

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.
