Allie Montgomery, MAMFT

Regardless of what you are struggling with, you don’t have to tackle it alone. My approach to therapy is based on the belief that a person’s well-being is influenced by their relationships, environments, and personal experiences. Together, we will work to understand the “why” behind your “stuckness”, and collaboratively figure out how to move forward to create new and healthy patterns to best reach your goals.

My primary aim as a therapist is to provide support to my clients as they navigate challenges related to mental health, relationships, self-esteem, and the various stressors of daily life, and most importantly, to feel confident doing so. Families and romantic relationships should be a place of healthy and safe expression! Whether you are hoping to develop a stronger connection with your partner, family members, or even to yourself, I would love to support you on your journey toward growth and well-being.

I have an integrative, client-centered approach and tailor my approach based on the needs and goals of each client/client system. When working with adult individuals, I frequently utilize internal family systems techniques and parts work, intergenerational therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and mindfulness. When working with couples and intimate relationships I utilize Emotionally Focused Therapy techniques, Gottman Method techniques, and Internal Family Systems and parts work techniques. When working with children, I frequently use play therapy techniques, art therapy interventions, and techniques from an Internal Family Systems approach.

I am a Marriage and Family Therapy Associate and graduate of the University of Louisville. I am under the Supervision of Dr. Justin Romney, PhD, LMFT, for Marriage and Family Therapy licensure. I see clients at the Prospect office & via Telehealth, and enjoy working with children, teens, adults, couples, and families.

Before entering the world of talk therapy with couples, families, and individuals, I grew up in New York and earned a bachelors in Psychological Sciences and a double minor in Special Education and Behavior Change Health Studies from the University of Vermont. I have 10+ years of experience working with children and adolescents with special needs. I began in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy, and worked as a registered behavior technician for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). I decided to get my master’s in Couple and Family Therapy because I believe in a holistic approach to creating successful outcomes for families facing different challenges.
