Intro

Hello! I'm Allison Phinney, a licensed mental health counselor in Florida. I am passionate about empowering clients with the skills and resources they need to thrive. My expertise in mindfulness enables me to provide holistic and evidence-based interventions that promote positive outcomes and help prevent crises. It is important to me to remain driven and value diversity, equity, and inclusion; I strive to make a difference in the lives of my clients every day.

What motivated you to specialize in working with autistic adults?

I have been working with the autistic community for over 10 years. I feel that neurodivergent and autistic individuals are often underserved and dmarginalized, and I am very excited to be a small part in changing that. I love that our work at Prosper is providing a new space for autistic adults.

How do you bring a strengths-based, affirming approach to your client work?

My experience as a parent to a neurodivergent child and sibling of a neurodivergent individual, led to my understanding and compassion for working with clients who think differently. It is my passion to help clients focus on their unique abilities and individual strengths to promote lasting growth. Different minds truly inspire me and feel we can all learn from each other when provided the right collaborative and supportive environment.
