Hello! My name is Allyson, and my approach to the therapeutic relationship is based in transparency and honesty, not just from you, but from myself. I believe that the best work is done when the therapeutic relationship is strong and collaborative. I want the space I create for you to be affirming, and one in which we are free to be human. Therapy can feel weird and awkward, especially if you’ve never done it before, so I strive to create an environment in which we are equals, and you feel like you are able to be your most authentic self.
I take an integrated approach to counseling, drawing mainly from trauma-informed therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), narrative therapy, interpersonal therapy, and emotion-focused therapy. It sounds like a lot, but I want to tailor your treatment to what you want and what you need. I am also a firm believer in the power of stories, and how telling those stories can lead to taking new perspectives and making new connections that we may not have seen before.
I provide both in-person and telehealth services. My out-of-pocket fee is $125 per session, but we can discuss a sliding scale fee if necessary.
I graduated in July 2022 from Ball State University with a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Before that, I graduated from Purdue University with a B.S. in Psychological Sciences (and minors in Human Development and Theatre!). Throughout my schooling, I have done research in fields such as neurodivergence in children, perinatal health, maternal mortality, and substance use disorders. Clinically, my interests are in working in the realms of perinatal health, various mood disorders, trauma, and sexual health and wellness.
When I am not in the therapeutic space, I enjoy listening to music and podcasts, roller skating, cooking and baking with my partner, and relaxing with my cats: DJ Katled and Penelope! If you have any questions about the therapeutic process or would like to schedule a time to meet, feel free to reach out!

Soaring Heart Center currently accepts Anthem and Medicare health insurance plans.
Yes, Soaring Heart Center offers virtual sessions. In some cases, e-mail or text communication may be available. All information shared is strictly confidential.
The first session is about determining if there is a good fit between the client and the provider. During this session, the provider will ask about the client’s reasons for seeking therapy, go over office policies and procedures, discuss the provider’s therapeutic approach, and address the client’s needs and expectations.
The office is located on the first floor. Clients should come directly into the suite from the front stoop and have a seat. The provider will come out to bring the client back at the scheduled appointment time. Restrooms are available down the hall from the waiting room. If a client is waiting for more than ten minutes after the appointment time, they can text the provider to let them know.
After an appointment is confirmed, clients will receive an email from Therapy Notes, the cloud-based health record service. The email will contain a link to the portal and a temporary password. Clients should complete their initial paperwork before the first session through that portal.
We use Google Meet for our virtual sessions. Clients should ensure they are in a secure and private location with working audio and video. An email with a link to a private telehealth video call will be sent to the provided email address. If a client does not hear from the provider after five to ten minutes, they can text or email to follow up.
Soaring Heart Center may provide court appearances, but it cannot always be guaranteed. Additional services, including court-related services, will be billed separately based on the counselor’s regular service fee.
The name “Soaring Heart Center” originated from a beautiful art piece depicting the sacred heart with wings, brought back from Mexico. Over time, it came to symbolize the capacity for personal growth and inner courage.
Soaring Heart Center can provide support and guidance, but the client plays an active role in their own personal growth and problem-solving.
The duration of therapy varies for each individual. Soaring Heart Center takes a patient and focused approach to meet the client’s needs in an ethical and productive manner.
