Allen has been a great resource during a tough time. I felt heard and understood, and his words of encouragement were a breath of fresh air, which left me feeling stronger and more capable of facing my challenges after each session. He understands that each person is different, so each approach will also need to be different, which is a tremendous help when it comes to mental health.

More about me
Years in Practice: 17
As a therapist for over 17 years, I am very passionate about helping people recognize their limiting beliefs in order to get on the path of seeing things more clearly and to take the necessary steps to move forward in life. Truly believing that they hold the key to unlocking happiness and being the best version of themselves.
Throughout my years as a therapist I had the opportunity to work with people of all ages, cultural backgrounds, and sexual orientation in a variety of settings. I have provided clinical services in outpatient mental health facilities, a wide range of schools in the Department of Education throughout New York City, as well as in home service.
I have been trained in a wide range of treatment modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Strength Based Therapy, and Psychodynamic Therapy. I commend and respect you for taking the first step in hoping to attain your goals through this platform.
About online counseling
Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $35 to $80 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.
