Hello! My name is Kevin Allen and I am an Associate Counselor at Reflections Counseling & Wellness. I am a Licensed Associate Counselor in the state of New Jersey and graduated from the Capella University in 2021 with a Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Along with helping individuals at Reflections, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, traveling with my wife, watching sports, and diving into a good video game.
I have a strong passion for helping individuals cope with overwhelming, sometimes spiraling thoughts that are rooted in anxiety. I have a specific focus on assisting individuals who are supporting a loved one with a chronic mental health or physical health issue as these individuals are often overlooked and carry their own emotional burdens. My clinical experience has been centered on helping individuals achieve anxiety management by creating a sense of balance and peace in their lives.
I believe that the relationship formed between the client and counselor is the most important agent of change. As a counselor, I value creating a genuine connection with my clients and fostering an environment that supports client transformation. Using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) interventions, I help clients to understand and challenge negative thoughts and reflect on successes along the way.
Life is truly a journey, filled with both high and low points. Sometimes we need someone to walk beside us in this journey, to offer support through the lows and celebrate during the highs. Be assured that you can expect that support throughout our therapeutic relationship.
If you are ready to embrace the highs and work through the lows, know that I am ready to take that journey with you!
