Allison Schlegel

Accepting Clients

Hi! My name is Allison and I'm so happy you're here! My passion is to support others to find their voice & brighten their lens of the world

Clinical Social Worker in Pennsylvania

About My Clients

My priority is establishing a safe, secure, and trusted relationship with my clients so that they have the space to be their authentic self to create the change they are seeking. My approach includes utilizing validation and empathy, curiosity, and therapeutic challenging in a way that feels manageable, and helps me meet the client where they’re at. I want my clients to leave the office feeling empowered, hopeful, and having a new perspective of their perception of the world.

My Background and Approach

My speciality is working with adolescents, adults, and families. I love supporting these populations with life stressors, past (and/or current) trauma, and navigating relationship challenges. I have many years of experience working in all different environments, including a child and adolescent residential treatment program, providing family therapy in the comfort of people’s homes, working as a trauma therapist in an outpatient environment, to now being a director of outpatient services at a prominent agency in Philadelphia. These experiences have provided the foundation for my work by incorporating all the different parts of ourselves–complex family dynamics, early childhood experiences, past/present relationships–into a person’s present functioning that are an integral part of the healing process.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that people are extremely resilient and have the ability to endure the toughest of storms. I feel that everyone has strengths and making little changes is just as meaningful as the big changes. I have an unhealthy relationship with the Philadelphia Eagles (GO BIRDS) and all Philly sports. I strongly believe we deserve to treat ourselves often, rest when we need, and surround ourselves with people who only add joy and peace to our lives.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
