Perhaps you’ve given so much of yourself to your children, your spouse, or your job that by the end of the day you find yourself frazzled, irritable, and exhausted. You might even wonder how you’ll muster the energy to do it all over again tomorrow. Have those same life distractions negatively impacted your relationship? Are you feeling alone and disconnected from your partner; more like roommates than lovers and friends? Or maybe you’re dealing with a difficult transition, and you’re not sure if/how you can feel better and move forward.
As a mother of three small children, I understand the unique pressures that modern relationships & parenting bring. I am adept at helping both individuals & couples navigate their journeys through major life difficulties/transitions. I believe in a mind/body approach to wellness and am passionate about helping individuals and couples in our community.
As the old proverb goes, “you can’t pour from an empty cup.” If this is resonating with you, it’s time to take that first brave step into self-care. You owe it to yourself, your spouse, and your family. With the right tools, you will have the power to radically change your outlook and your life, for the better. I can’t wait to help you reinvest in yourself.

Allison Freeman, MA, LMHC
Licensed Mental Health Counselor
I have a passion for working with adults struggling with phases of life transitions, self esteem, anxiety, depression, history of trauma, domestic violence /emotional abuse, reproductive wellness (infertility/pregnancy loss/postpartum) or a desire to find authenticity and create autonomy. I truly believe that Self Actualization can be reached with an understanding that we are ever evolving and wired for struggle.
While I strongly believe in the personalization of therapy and work with each client in a personal and individual way, I find that I approach counseling and my interactions with clients from an integrated approach including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma Focused CBT (TF-CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Client Centered Therapy.
I obtained a Masters in Mental Health Counseling at Rollins College in Winter Park and am fully licensed as a Mental Health Therapist and additionally a Qualified Supervisor.
My mental health career began at Lake Mary High School as a counselor working with youth that struggled with anxiety, depression, family transitions, body image/self esteem, and youth who were at risk for substance use. My career has focused on serving underprivileged and at risk youth and families, specializing in family of origin issues, anxiety, depression, anger management, and life transitions.

Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern, Practice Manager, & Marketing Support
As a holistic therapist, I approach therapy with a mind-body approach and use a trauma-informed lens. Clients I work with are interested in how to regulate their emotions, shadow work (exploring the parts we deny, hide or reject about ourselves), inner-child healing, reparenting (becoming the nurturing, protective parent our inner-child needs), and learning how to regulate their nervous system.
Being human can be messy and complex and sometimes we need support within our own healing journey — this is where I step in.
If you are experiencing feelings of not being good enough, worried about living up to others’ expectations, or feeling disconnected from yourself and others – I am here to help. I work with adults who are experiencing anxiety, depression, grief, life transitions, or an overall sense of just feeling lost.
I’ve been in the field of therapy and holistic wellness for about 13 years and I feel a deep call to be of service and support my community. We work together in bringing the subconscious conscious from a space of no judgement and fueled with compassion. I help you build insight about unhelpful patterns that are showing up in your life, releasing what’s no longer serving you, and creating a conscious and connected life to yourself and others.
