Hello! My name is Beth Allen and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Nationally Certified Counselor in Pennsylvania with over 17 years of experience in therapy and counseling, with an additional 12 years in other social services. Settings where I have worked include community mental health centers, substance abuse treatment, private practice, crisis hotline, group private practice, physician's office, telehealth, schools, and residential facilities. I have experience with a wide range of concerns, such as depression, anxiety, life transitions, grief/loss, relationship issues, self-esteem, stress, trauma, and emotional abuse.
It is my honor and privilege to accompany on your journey toward hope, healing and empowerment. I believe in treating everyone with respect, compassion, sensitivity, and individuality. Counseling is my passion, and my approach combines cognitive-behavioral, motivational interviewing, dialectic-behavioral therapy, mindfulness, inner-child work, person-centered, psychoeducational, mind/body connection, and others. We will work together to address your unique needs and priorities.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps toward a change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and help empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

I have been working with Beth for the last 6 months or so, and in that time she has helped teach me the tools I needed to work through my anxiety and stress. She was instrumental in helping me cope with some difficult situations I was going through in real time. She is knowledgeable and sympathetic. I also really appreciate how she puts complicated concepts into layman's terms that make sense to anyone. In the 6 months that I've been working with her, I went from having panic attacks at least weekly, to going through a very hard time personally, and now we're talking about concluding our sessions as I've been able to build myself a good group of support to handle things organically. Highly recommend, with her help I barely recognize myself from before I started therapy sessions.

Beth has given me the tools to help cope with and prevent my anxiety. She has helped me work through various struggles in my life over the course of our sessions. Beth is understanding, compassionate, and listens without judgement. I have been able to see new perspectives, achieve a better understanding of my anxieties, and work through my struggles better since starting our sessions. I would recommend Beth to anyone who is in need of help and guidance from their anxiety - whether it is fear, grief, regret, trauma, etc. She is willing to listen and is here to help. Beth has made a positive impact toward my mental health and better self. ❤️

She's a great listener and is good at connecting with me pn an intellectual level which is something I've had trouble with other therapists given my healthcare background.
