To learn how we can help you

Allison Jones, LPC

Who I am as a therapist
I have always seen my role as a therapist as a privilege. It’s a privilege to have you take a chance on trusting me and to be part of your journey to wholeness. I enjoy sharing both the hardship and celebrating the successes. I believe that therapy is a journey, and “Every adventure requires a first step” (Cheshire Cat, Alice in Wonderland 1951).

Often when clients chose to engage in counseling, they are facing challenges as individuals, couples, or families. I believe that one of the first steps toward healing is coming to therapy.  I strive to offer a safe, non-judgmental environment as we move through the therapeutic process. I gently challenge you toward growth. If you chose to take that first step with me, I start with a foundation of building trust. I want to understand what is working about your life. Things that are working for you and your personal strengths are what I center our work around. This focus allows us to build resiliency through the challenges. It is important not to rush the emotions or process. Most people are doing as well as they can with their challenges, and the extra support I can provide in our work together is vital to help them move into their optimal daily functioning.

My approaches are eclectic and rooted in strengths-based interventions, creative and play interventions, reality based interventions, and attachment based interventions. My orientation pulls from Play therapy, Child-Directed therapy, Attachment therapy, Cognitive Behavioral therapy, Narrative therapy, and Interpersonal Neurobiology. If you feel like this may be a good fit for you, your children’s, or your family’s needs, please feel free to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.

Who am I when I am not being a therapist

I enjoy spending time with family and friends while getting outside, cooking, and playing games. I like to travel, and often find my husband and I researching places to visit and foods to try. I spend time volunteering with those who are in need of food support, and making coffee at my church. I feel refreshed after trips to the mountains and the beach, and also after a mini binge with my favorite television show.
