Allison M. Garner, BA

 

Allison Garner is native of Virginia who currently resides in Fayetteville, North Carolina. She is a graduate of Greenville County Schools, Emporia, where she earned her high school diploma.  Mrs. Garner took a break from school immediately after high school. Still, she soon returned to the world of academia by way of Saint Augustine University, Raleigh, North Carolina, where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice.   She is currently enrolled in Capella University’s graduate program to pursue her Master of Science in Clinical Psychology with a specialization in Counseling Psychology.  

Mrs. Garner has received specialized training in psychological diagnostic assessment (testing) and therapeutic clinical interventions.  She considers herself a Humanistic Existential practitioner and believes that all persons have the answers to their deepest concerns and can find healing when adequately regarded as a solid and capable individual. With an enduring passion for helping and supporting youth, Mrs. Garner is a staunch advocate for those youths who are faced with life-altering consequences due to poor momentary choices.  

As a clinical intern and future practitioner, Mrs. Garner believes she must assist those with behavioral challenges exacerbated by mental health problems brought on by unwelcome environments.  She believes in standing in support of those unwittingly on a collision course with an imbalanced and already overwhelmed justice system.  In her free time, she enjoys participating in Zumba classes, which is a Polynesian dance workout.  She also enjoys spending time in nature and observing wildlife.  Secondary to that, Mrs. Garner enjoys watching documentaries about animals on the National Geographic channel.  When she is not learning about animal life, she explores her creative side with Do-It-Yourself (DIY) projects around her home and making jewelry.  Above all else, her first love is her family, and she spends the majority of her time investing herself in her family’s happiness and well-being. 

 Mrs. Garner hopes to bring her life experiences and formal education to the private practice setting where she can hopefully make a difference with each person who seeks her support.
