About Allison

Hi! My name is Allison Zimmerman I am a Licensed Graduate Professional Counselor with over three years of experience working in counseling settings. Over the years I have been fortunate to provide counseling services with a wide variety of clients such as youth, adults, couples and groups in counseling centers, schools, and nonprofit organizations.  Common areas addressed include low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, work stressors, illness, separation, divorce, family/spousal conflict, gender identity, and transition. I have earned a Master of Arts degree in Psychology from Chapman University in California and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from the University of New Mexico. 

 

My specialties encompass narrative, strengths based, solutions focused, motivational interviewing and cognitive behavioral therapy. These approaches include artful ways to explore our stories and the relationships that we have developed with our thoughts, problems, coping strategies, and potential solutions. 

 

I have found that so much of how we define ourselves and our relationships with others come from the stories that we tell ourselves and the meaning that we make from these stories. Through collaboration, exploration, awareness, mindfulness, and challenging old patterns of thoughts and behaviors there is an opportunity for unique outcomes. 

 

If this sounds like something that you would be interested in exploring, please feel free to reach out. I would be delighted to meet you!
