Hi! My name is Allison and I am a Masters Level counselor here at Bella Mente. I received my CGS in Advanced Counseling from Rhode Island College and additionally have several years of experience counseling in schools with students of all ages.
I believe that counseling should be tailored to what YOU need so I try to adapt and be flexible to whatever life throws at us. I tend to draw from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, play therapy, etc. but will adjust based on what will be helpful for you to reach your goals and navigate life.
I am currently accepting new patients both in-person and virtually. I specialize in youth, adolescents, and young adults but am open to all ages of clients experiencing such things as anxiety, depression, trauma, academics, stress, and relationships among others. I also have experience working with LGBTQIA+ individuals. I’m excited to start working with you!
