Hey, my name is Allison but I go by Alli and I just wanted to thank you for taking the time to consider your mental health! I have a Master's degree from Winthrop University in Counseling and Development with an emphasis in Clinical and Mental Health Counseling. I am a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC), and a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate (LCMHCA). I am currently in my third or advanced year of specializing in a trauma-informed approach to counseling called Somatic Experiencing (SE).

I consider myself to be a grounded individual who understands the human experience and just how painful it is at times. However, I have complete trust in my clients' ability to heal themselves and build a more satisfying life with proper support. Nevertheless, I believe it is my moral responsibility to show up for my clients as a human myself. This means I do not believe in a cold and detached professional relationship with my clients. I practice professional immediacy, meaning I will interact with you and your story in a healing manner as we explore your life together.

I believe that humans are delicate and it is a normal part of our experience to feel as if our lives are overwhelming. However, it does not have to be our experience to face this overwhelm alone. Nonetheless, I believe the only expert on you is you, and I am here to aid you in the way that resonates with you the best.

Presently I work with children from ages four and up, adolescents, young adults, and adults. My main modalities for therapy include SE, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Experiential Therapy, Reality Therapy, and Child-Centered Play Therapy (CCPT).
