Allison Goukler, Licensed Master Social Worker, 109256 is practicing under the supervision of De'An Olson Roper (Texas, LCSW, 23146) at Realistic Expectations, 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.

Work History

I have a background in case management and counseling in the recovery and substance misuse field with specialty knowledge in opioids. Additionally, I have experience working with individuals that have been victims of crime and have experienced trauma. I have also, along with Caroline Broughton, BSc, worked on the development of the Realistic Expectations, PLLC’s ASIDE (Asexuality-Spectrum Identity Development and Education) group along with other asexuality and ace specific educational materials and presentations for both clinicians and folks in general wanting to learn more about asexuality and challenge prevailing ideas around sexuality, dysfunction, love, and identity. I have had the privilege, in working with Realistic Expectations, PLLC, to learn about the polyamourous and CNM communities and how to best support these families without judgment. Additionally, I have a kink and BDSM friendly perspective with my work. With a holistic perspective and an eclectic approach, I hope to be a resource for the community.
