Meet your counselor
Hello, my name is Allen. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC). I have been a practicing counselor for several years and have been trained in EMDR since 2016. I have worked with individuals from many different countries, religious backgrounds, ages, ethnicity, and sexual orientations.
I was born and raised in small-town Steele, North Dakota where I graduated from high school. I obtained my Bachelors degree from Minot State University and my Master's in Counseling from Minnesota State University Moorhead.
Having lived in North Dakota all of my life I have many different passions. I enjoy woodworking, landscaping, gardening, fishing and camping. When there isn't a yard project or work needing my attention, I do like to read, watch movies, and cook. I am also a huge animal lover and have two dogs.
I enjoy working with all people and there are three special groups of people that I have a special interest in helping:
My father was a Vietnam Veteran and taught me many great things in my life. His service in the military has fostered a special interest in helping members of the military who may be struggling in any way.
Many people struggle, and I provide compassionate care to individuals who have a history of domestic violence, rape, and abuse of all types.
I also work closely with individuals who identify as LGBTQ. If you are seeking an LGBTQ affirming counseling, let me be your counselor.
My goal is to help you regain control of your life. Don't let your past prevent you from flying in your future.
