Carrie Allen, LPC

Carrie Allen, LPC

I understand that talking to someone new can be intimidating, so I strive to create a safe space for each of my clients. We’ll create that safe space together so that you can feel brave enough to share the hard stuff. I would describe myself as very intuitive and extremely empathetic. I am a straightforward and authentic person and I pride myself on being transparent with my clients. In my therapy practice, I might describe myself as a lighthouse providing guidance for the ships seeking the shore. 

“I am a lighthouse rather than a lifeboat. I do not rescue, but instead, help others find their way to shore. 

I obtained my M.S. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Walden University in 2016. My interest was in working with clients who experienced trauma and I was accepted into an internship that had provided trauma therapy to the LGBTQ+ community. For the last four years, I have counseled children, teens, and adults with a variety of needs, providing both individual and group services. For nearly two years, I have offered trauma-focused therapy to victims of sexual, physical, and emotional violence and abuse. I have experience working with all ages, from children as young as three to adults

My passion is to help those that have experienced trauma. It’s a privilege for me to help those who are stuck reliving their trauma, those who have lost their voice because they are afraid to speak, those who have such big feelings that it scares other people. It is such a joy and privilege for me to watch my clients find their voice, understand their feelings, and work their way through the healing process. It is such a humbling experience to see the change! 

Treatment Approach: I am a nationally certified Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral (TF-CBT) therapist, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and I am known to practice Mindfulness and Client-Centered Therapy. 

I love to use creative techniques such as play, writing, or music to meet each client’s individual needs.
