Allison Montgomery, Student Counseling Intern
I am a student in my final year of the Couple and Family Therapy Masters program at the University of Louisville. I see clients at the Prospect office & via Telehealth, and enjoy working with children, teens, adults, couples, and families.
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 an individual’s overall well-being is influenced by their relationships, environments, and personal experiences. Since each person has a unique and diverse perspective, I collaborate with my clients using experiential techniques to facilitate change in a manner tailored to their specific needs.
My primary aim as a therapist is to provide support to my clients as they navigate challenges related to mental health, interpersonal relationships, self-esteem, and the various stressors of daily life, and 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.
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 masters in Couple and Family Therapy because I believe in a holistic approach to creating successful outcomes for families facing different challenges.
