About Me

Being able to manage every area of our lives isn't easy, especially as a teenager. Sometimes people just don't take the time to get to know or understand each teen as an individual. Each quality about you is unique and you're worth the time to be understood and heard. Reaching out for help can be a bit challenging whether you're young or old, but you're worth the time to do something different to be the best version of yourself. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor licensed for South Carolina. I want to help you recognize that you don't have to go through this process alone, and that you have what it takes to become more confident and secure in your ability to reach your personal goals. I help individuals with the following, but not limited to: Depression, Anxiety, ADHD, Self-Esteem, Stress, Coping Skills, Occupational Stress, Family issues, and more.

Counseling can provide the additional support and guidance in order to accomplish what you need to be confident in your ability to persevere through challenges. I want to help you through your process by helping you reach your maximum potential. It's not an easy process, but with my help, you can get through it if you take the step.

Help me help you put in the work that it takes to become a more confident, and better you. I look forward to working with you soon.

Turkessa provided our daughter with a kind and safe space so she felt comfortable communicating and she was accessible to us when we had questions and concerns. Really good experience.

Written by C.H. on Sep 16, 2021 after therapy with Turkessa for 7 months on issues concerning relationship

Our sessions have been amazing! After 21 years of marriage, it’s nice knowing that we can keep getting better and keep growing as a couple. Turkestan has helped us get to know each other again and work out trouble spots to give us an even more solid marriage. We highly recommend her.

She is a wonderful counselor. She had helped me talk through a lot of feelings and understand myself better. She had helped me cope with some difficult changes and help me understand my own feelings and how to make sure I’m putting myself first to keep my mental health in a better state. She answers my questions in a timely manner and is always available when I need advise or just someone to listen. It is because of her I’ve recommended this app to a coworker. Thank you so much!

Turkessa Allen is our counselor and we have had one video session with her so far. Her advice was spot on to our situation and we learned some valuable tips for dealing with my sister, who has had negative effects on our marriage. I would recommend her to anyone having an issue with their marriage.

After the first few sessions I already see a huge change in how I react to other people and stressful situations. I cannot recommend her enough!
