Meet Dr. Allison

I’m Dr. Allison.  I’m a licensed clinical psychologist, and I’ve made it my life mission to simplify psychology, helping you live the healthy and meaningful life you totally deserve.

Life is a gift.  I truly believe that.  But it’s also complicated, difficult, and, at times, really messy.  My mission as a psychologist is simple: find a balance between the science and the practical, making psychology completely relevant to your everyday life. 

I am a passionate consumer of research, which means all the things we work on in therapy and all of the things you read on Dr. Allison Answers are backed by scientific research. (In short, they’re proven to work!)  I like to think of myself as a translator: taking information from psychology and related fields and making it easy to understand and incorporate into your daily life.

My favorite buzzwords include mindfulness, intentionality, courage, and authenticity, and I’m deeply committed to helping people live the healthy and meaningful lives they deserve.  (And if you’re curious about dmy training, I graduated with my Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from Texas A&M University, and prior to that, graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a minor in Sociology from the University of Oklahoma.  I also did a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Illinois at Chicago’s Counseling Center.)

You don’t always get a say in what life throws your way. But you do have a choice in how you respond. You have a say in what your life looks and feels like.  It will take some work, reflection, and courage, but on the other side of that is a you that feels freer, truer, and more equipped to live the life you’re in.

I’ve assembled an incredible team of therapists at Dr. Allison and Associates, ready to help you do the same.  Our team has experts in anxiety, depression, trauma, substance use, racial identity, anger, grief, LGBTQ+ issues, and identity development.  They are warm, wise, and deeply committed to giving you the best therapy experience you can have.  

If you’re tired of the same struggle, don’t wait to reach out; don’t tell yourself you’ll do it “tomorrow.”  Reach out to us, we’re ready to support you!
