Allyson Foster

(LCPC)

About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) in Montana with experience working in clinics, schools, and nonprofits that provide therapeutic services. While I currently live and work in a fairly rural state, I attended graduate school and completed my clinical training in New York City. I feel that my diverse set of experiences has provided me with the opportunity to serve and relate to a diverse range of clients and issues. I have worked with teenagers presenting with a wide range of concerns including: depression, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma, grief, family dynamics, and coping with changes.

I know that it isn’t always easy to reach out for support and I hope to provide a safe and supportive space where we can work together to help you find some relief and start making changes in your life that will be rewarding, insightful, and motivating. I firmly believe that you are the best expert on you. We will work together to set your goals for therapy, and explore your unique strengths in order to achieve them. Getting to really know you and your experiences is always a top priority in my work. It is my goal to build relationships that build trust, foster collaboration, and provide transparency. I believe that we all have the capacity to make meaningful changes lead to the life that you have imagined for yourself, and it is my goal to create a warm, non-judgmental environment to do so.

Generally I use approaches from interpersonal, psychodynamic, strengths-based, solution-focused, and cognitive behavioral therapies to explore emotions and behaviors, and support practices and actions that lead to living a life that feels fulfilling and purposeful. I will work hard to meet you where you are now, and use evidence-based practices to support your unique needs and strengths. I am so happy that you have decided to take this step, and I look forward to working with you.

Written by D.O. on Mar 13, 2020 after counseling with Allyson for 2 weeks

Allyson is working with my son. She managed to get my trust and confidence in her abilities from the very beginning. After just few sessions I can see positive improvement in his mood and attitude. Allyson is very professional in her approach yet warm and understanding. I am very grateful to have Allyson as my son's counsellor.

Allyson has been respectful, and a good listener. She responds in a timely manner. She offers helpful insight and different things to try for specific issues. She's very understanding and can help pinpoint the issues most important to you.
