I've done counseling for several years and with different counselors. I've never had this level of connection with a counselor previously nor benefited so much in a short period of time. I now believe that I wasn't paired properly with some past counselors. Dr. Allen treats me with respect and as an intelligent person while providing meaningful guidance in a compassionate way. I feel truly blessed to have found her.

Dr. Allen has been a great help. In the few sessions we have had, I have learned quite a bit and have been able to recognize things that I have missed in my daily life. She gives me another perspective that I had not noticed and this helps me to understand what I need to change. I would recommend her to anyone.
