My interest in counseling stems from a genuine desire to see my clients lead a life that is balanced and healthy. I know the value of a positive and healthy family life, a life connected to community, and committed to spiritual growth. I draw from life experiences that inform the knowledge I gained from my education, as I work with my clients. Due to my cultural background, as a West Indian, I am competent in the areas of cultural diversity. This allows clients who feel more connected to the values of their culture and want someone who will view their behaviors and thought process through the filter of their specific culture, to be more at ease. I don't have all the answers, but I am willing to take the journey with my clients to discover them. I believe that in a balanced life there will be activity in all areas, the spirit, body, and the mind.
I am a licensed psychotherapist who specializes in Cognitive Behavioral therapy and Christian Counseling. I have been in private practice for over 20 years and have worked in the field of social work for over 30 years. In my private practice I work with families and individuals to maximize their healthy functioning. My clients are people who are experiencing some difficulties, whether interpersonal, occupational, or psychological, which effects their healthy functioning. As a psychotherapist I encourage, support, challenge and educate.
I am able to provide telemental health services, but only to current clients, and those who reside in Florida. Many insurances do not cover this, therefore clients will be responsible for paying privately for this service.
I also provide coaching for those who do not have a mental health diagnosis. This service is not covered by insurance and is done online. For more information about this click here I am ready to help you reach your personal and career goal if you need a coach.
Currently contracted insurances.
Allison is in the office Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday from 9 am - 4 pm.
