About Me

My name is Taren Allen, and I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Texas. I earned my Masters of Social Work degree from Texas A and M University- Commerce in 2011. I've worked in many different settings with individuals and families who have a variety of personal issues such as depression/anxiety, stress, family problems, trauma/abuse, addictions of all kinds, relationships/parenting and more. My experience has taught me that the most important aspect of counseling is building connection with those who can guide you through difficult times. Sometimes another person, one who isn't in our immediate circle, can offer a perspective or additional support, that gives the help we need to make it and together we can make it through. I believe it's very important to be open-minded and non-judgmental when someone shares their personal story or experiences with me I will continuously honor that and honor our relationship. Let's partner for your success.

Written by K.A. on Nov 20, 2021 after therapy with Taren for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, sleeping disorders, parenting issues, self esteem, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Absolutely love Taren Allen! I’ve been in therapy with another therapist before her, and I’ve gotten more out of Taren in just a few sessions than what I did in over a year with someone else. She is EXCELLENT!

I am so happy I matched with Taren. She is a great listener and often provides a perspective that helps me get through many situations. Taren is very adaptable and I feel like our conversations work through video, phone or chat. We’ve been speaking for 2 months now and my mental health and outlook has improved.

I’ve only had 2 sessions with Taren after changing to her from the first therapist I was matched with and I could not be happier. Taren is everything I was hoping for and has already helped me greatly. I look forward to every session and would highly recommend her.
