Greetings! My name is Allison and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for the state of Georgia and a Licensed Independent Social Worker for the state of Ohio. I have obtained a bachelors degree in Social Work from Johnson C. Smith University, a masters degree in social work from Georgia State University and a masters degree in family therapy from Mercer University. I have over 7 years of clinical experience in providing trauma-informed therapy to individuals, couples, and families with a variety of psychiatric, relational, and situational needs and concerns which include grief and loss, issues with depression and anxiety, bipolar disorder, and trauma. I also have experience working with individuals and couples who are a part of the LGBTQ community.
My therapeutic style consists of meeting and approaching people where they are in their varying situations. I have an open-minded, non-judgmental approach to therapy in which I work to view issues and concerns from a non-pathologizing standpoint. I mainly center around systemic and strengthening based therapies that are drawn from Cognitive Behavioral, Dialectical Behavioral and Solution Focused Therapies.
In my spare time, I enjoy reading, exercising, traveling, watching "reality television", and spending time with friends and family.
Life changes and transitions happen to all of us. Sometimes, we need someone to talk with to help better understand, process, and cope with things that are beyond our control. It is my hope that as you move through these changes and experiences, you will consider working with someone who is devoted to understanding what makes you uniquely YOU.
- Stress, Anxiety
- Family conflicts
- Trauma and abuse
I also have experience in Addictions, LGBT, Relationship issues, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Parenting issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder
