About Betty Allen, LMHC, CAP, SAP

I have been working in the counseling field since 1996. I have a wide variety of experience working with children, teenagers, and adults. I currently see adults and conduct a lot of individual, family therapy, marital therapy, and addiction counseling. I am a Christian and integrate my faith into my counseling. I specialize in trauma and abuse and especially with women who have been sexually abused. My philosophy is that we must get to the root of the problem rather than continuing to treat just the symptoms. My approach is directive in helping clients to reach their goals. I am practical in my approach and do not like to use a lot of psychobabble in my interactions with clients. I love my career and have had ample affirmation that my gifts and talents are in the counseling arena.
