Cynthia Allison

(MS, LPC.)

About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Alabama with 7 years of experience in providing mental health and behavioral counseling in various settings and various aspects of counseling. I have worked with couples and successfully helped them through varied relationship issues to rejuvenate their relationship and effect positive changes in their lives. I have also worked with individuals ages seven to adult with a variety of mental health, family/behavioral presenting issues such as depression, anxiety, grief/loss, trauma, Bipolar disorder, Schizophrenia, physical and sexual abuse, domestic violence, and addiction, suicide assessment, and prevention. I approach the therapeutic relationship with a friendly manner and a warm atmosphere. Many individuals are afraid to seek therapeutic help because of fear. So, I seek to build a therapeutic relationship with friendly trust.
I have experience in providing individual counseling, family counseling, group counseling, mental health therapy, crisis intervention, and suicide prevention in the community, in homes and the prison setting. My therapy style is warm and friendly. I think that many individuals forgo meaningful help from therapy because of misconceptions and fear of sharing intimate details with a stranger. I operate from the theoretical vantage points of Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Reality Therapy, Brief Solutions Focused Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing.

Written by C.A. on Sep 09, 2020 after counseling with Cynthia for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship

I have only been talking with Cynthia for a few weeks, but she is so warm, sincere, and phrases things in a way that really helps me think productively throughout the day. I am so happy to finally have found a counselor that I want to continue with.
