My Story

Allyson Kropf


Mental Health Therapist

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with 12 years of experience working in mental health for non-profit agencies, the VA, and other organizations.  During our therapeutic sessions I primarily utilize CBT, DBT, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). I work from a client centered, integrative approach and believes in working collaboratively with clients to help them achieve their goals, improve coping, and reduce symptoms.  

Growing up in a military family, I always wanted to serve my country.  I got the opportunity when I enlisted in the Navy and served for more than five years as a non-commissioned officer.  Through my own experiences in the military, I experienced first-hand Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.  After leaving the Navy, I sought therapy to help process what I experienced.  While completing my education, I worked at Veterans' Affairs, helping combat Veterans who experienced PTSD and other challenges, including drug and alcohol addiction.  I bring this experience to working with you in processing trauma you may have experienced.  

Dealing with challenges related to serving in the military or from other traumatic events in your life can limit your functioning and day-to-day quality of life.  Finding a path to lead the life you want to lead is a goal of the work I do.  I practice a resilience-based approach while working primarily with adults, couples and families in individual and couples counseling sessions.
