Dr. Latasha Allen, Postdoctoral Fellow (she/her/hers)
Hello, I’m Dr. Latasha Allen, Ph.D., LCDC. I’m the newest member of Tabula Rasa Psychology. Honestly, I’ve been working in mental health for over 20 years. I graduated in 2019 with my doctorate in clinical psychology and am eager to finally get started on my postdoctoral fellowship.
I’m trained in Person-Centered therapy and Trauma Focussed care utilizing an integrative therapy style; patient-centered. I wanted to work with Dr. Blythe because I’m looking for a different experience in mental health culture.
My current top three musicians are Beyonce, Blake Shelton, and Little Big Town. I can’t wait to see the huge Beyonce quote on the office wall! My top 3 movies are Saving Private Ryan, Crimson Tide, and The Equalizer. I value being creative and timely, which Dr. Blythe assures me is a good fit. I’m an INTP and my love language is Words of Affirmation. This too makes for a great fit with this practice!!!
MORE ABOUT ME
My clients describe me as: genuine, passionate, caring, considerate, and understanding.
Something to know about my approach: My approach is trauma focussed and person centered. In order for you to improve and start feeling better, I believe you must have the resources for self understanding, self healing, and the ability to redirect undesired behaviors.
I became a therapist because: I’m here because my passion is to help you gather coping strategies, to realize the necessity for self care, and to facilitate healing to overcome stressors of all sizes.
I specialize in working with clients: Honestly, my specialty is working with Trauma (abuse/neglect), substance abuse, grief, anger management, parenting for at risk children, teen pregnancy, and childhood victimization. I mean, there is so much more … but if you are liking what you are reading, why don’t we just meet and see how we gel.
About my practice and myself: I strive to help you challenge your inner thought patterns, challenge your behaviors, and please for the love of oxygen prioritize your mental health!
Together we will work on finding meaning to the presenting problem and learning healthy resolutions. I’m guessing what you have been doing is no longer serving you (maybe it never did) and now it’s time to get after it with a mutual effort. I can’t fix you. But I can help you fix yourself, should you need “fixing.” I also want to help you prevent these stressors from taking command over your life. Let’s work to prevent the forest fire, instead of constantly putting out fires that may be preventable.
Want to start working together – submit the new patient request form and lets see when we can get you in!
