Allyson graduated from Southern Illinois University with her Master’s in Social Work. She was a Trauma Behavioral Health Fellow through the Southern Illinois University School of Medicine. She has experience working with diverse populations using a trauma-informed model. Allyson is experienced in helping clients process trauma, ease depression/anxiety symptoms, build self-esteem, establish healthy attachments, develop regulation techniques, set boundaries, parenting coaching, mood disorders, and many more. 

Allyson always meets where the client is at using a client-centered approach. Allyson may incorporate interventions in sessions like Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Play Therapy, and others. She is beginning the process to obtain a certificate in Theraplay so this intervention can be used in sessions. 

Allyson has worked with populations from children to adults. In her new role at Marvelous Minds, she will be working with children through young adults. Allyson’s goal is to help clients implement skills that will decrease symptoms while helping the client develop a strength’s based approach to building resiliency. Allyson is very bubbly, empathic, understanding, professional, and strives to make therapy an empowering place for her clients.
