Allen Males, MA, LPC
I began my career working in the helping professions after reciveing my Bachelors degree in Psychology from Texas State University in 2011. I continued forward in my education and received my Masters degree in Professional Counseling from Liberty University in 2014. After completing my Masters degree I obtained the required amount of hours in post graduate work to obtain my License as a Professional Counselor in March of 2015.
Through my educational journey as well as my own personal struggles I have learned many lessons regarding what it means to be a psychotherapist/counselor. Patience, time, and perseverance have been some of my greatest teachers. I have worked in a variety of different settings including: partial hospitalization, in-patient/out-patient treatment programs, non-profit organizations, behavioral health hospitals, in-home treatment, and private practice. The populations that I work with include: men and women, young adults, adults and families.
I utilize a holistic approach and draw from various therapeutic frameworks. Therapeutic frameworks I tend to draw from include, person centered, mindfulness based, CBT, and experiential.
"The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly." -Paramahansa Yogananda
