Under Clinical Supervision

Allison Freeman, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate, A19304 is practicing under the supervision of Travis Bobb (North Carolina, LCMHC-S, S4912) at Bloom Counseling Collaborative PLLC.

Please, note: A clinician listed as being “clinically supervised” is completing clinical hours toward their licensure. They have one or more fully licensed clinical supervisors that often have special training to become supervisors. They consult with their supervisor(s) on all of their cases, which means that, when working with them, you are getting the time and expertise of multiple therapists in your treatment.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I am open, transparent, collaborative, and deeply invested in my clients' growth, healing, and journey. I love to receive open and honest feedback from clients on what is and is not working in therapy so that we can make the absolute most of our work together. Professionally speaking, I am highly trained in Acceptance & Commitment Therapy & Coherence Therapy. ACT tenets help my clients focus their energy on aligning their actions with core values. This is a key component of improving one's self-worth, self-esteem, and confidence to help move towards a more fulfilling and peaceful life. I also use tenets of coherence therapy, compassion-focused therapy, and motivational interviewing. Coherence Therapy is a bottom-up approach to therapy and it is closely aligned with IFS and parts work.

In what ways does your personality influence your approach to therapy?

I identifying as neurodivergent & my personal journey has informed my practice deeply. Once a timid people-pleaser who quite literally put everyone's needs before her own, I have been able to do my own transformational work in therapy and psychological education to come out on the other side. I would now describe myself as a confident, authentic human who flexes her self-care muscle regulary. I am honored to get to support my clients on their own paths to self-discovery and healing. As a clinician, I am kind, empathetic, collaborative, and transparent. I prefer to dive as deep as my clients are willing to go into their experiences and challenges when they are ready. I am not a fan of traditional small-talk and prefer to show up in session as one of my clients' most trusted people; someone that helps them to reflect, offer new perspectives, coping tools, and education regarding their experiences and needs. Together, we deconstruct any unhelpful narratives you’re holding, process events and moments that left you feeling uncomfortable, & validate your lived experiences to achieve improved emotional health and authentic living.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

Clients can expect to take away an improved sense-of-self accompanied by a more clear and intentional understanding of the why behind their thoughts, feelings, and actions. They will also get the opportunity to hone in on boundaries that feel health and balanced for them. They will experience less stress and overwhelm in response to every day life demands/stressors over our time working together. They will leave therapy feeling less burned out, guilty, confused, or exhausted session by session. My clients can expect to feel a deep emotional weight lifted as we make meaningful progress together.

Work History

I began my counseling experience in the school system in 2011. During my time working with children and their families, I developed a passion for working with different-ability learners (ADHD, sensory differences, Autism, Anxiety, PDA, etc.). I worked with overwhelmed and burned out adolescents and parents for year, identifying the crux of their challenges and creating an effective resolution for them. In 2017, I earned my certification as a National Board Certified Teacher (Counselor) which had a focus on counseling differentiation in order to meet the unique needs of all learners and their families. In 2022, I made the decision to pursue private practice to work with clients in a more in-depth, clinical setting. I officially opened my private practice for in-person and online therapy and coaching in 2023 - Bloom Counseling Collaborative. I now specialize in working with anxious, burnt out, and overwhelmed neurodivergent adolescents, adults, and parents to process and overcome challenging lived experiences and bring them to a more fulfilling life.
