During Dr. Allen’s post-doctoral residency, he received specialized training in treating anxiety disorders and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)-specific training and supervision by recognized leaders in the field. He is a Certified World Professional Association for Transgender Health Care (WPATH) Global Education Initiative Standards of Care 7 Member and Mentor.

Message to clients

My approach to therapy is primarily based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). A core idea in ACT is that trying too hard to get rid of or control our emotions tends to backfire. As an ACT therapist, instead of trying to get rid of unwanted thoughts and feelings, I will help you learn to react differently to them so that you can keep your focus on living a meaningful and fulfilling life based on what’s important to you. We will work together to set meaningful goals to address your concerns–whether they relate to life transitions, depression, anxiety, body image, grief/loss, relationships, job or academic stress, or gender and sexuality.


Specialties

Anxiety - Coping with excessive worry, nervousness, or stress; intense discomfort in social settings (social anxiety); sudden and intense feelings of panic (panic disorder)

LGBTQIA, gender, & sexuality topics - Exploring topics of sexuality, gender, and identity; coping with discrimination and oppression; navigating relationship, family, and cultural challenges

Depression - Providing support and promoting healing of hopelessness, low motivation and energy, sadness, irritability, sleep disturbance, and loss of interest and pleasure in life
