I use EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) Therapy virtually with clients to assist their healing from childhood or previous experiences that are influencing them in the present and future, such as being invalidated & disconnected.

I’m Allie, and here’s my story: Starting Allie Kidd Counseling has allowed me the freedom to work with folks who are seeking a connection, an answer to the “why am I so lonely?” or the “why am I so overwhelmed with daily life?” I enjoy helping clients who typically identify as pessimists but really want things to get better. I often work with folks who have been burned in the past by employers or friends, let down by people they’ve trusted, and generally feel anxious and down about the future. It can get better and that’s what I love to do- allow clients to make their own connections and begin to heal from the past.

My love for therapy started in graduate school. I attended Columbia University School of Social Work and graduated in 2012 with an MSW (Master of Social Work) degree. I loved being able to validate folks’ feelings and help them feel seen and heard. I knew I was on the right path. After years of using more cognitive-based therapies (CBT and DBT), I felt transformed upon completion of EMDR training and knew this was the model that spoke to me the most.

I live and practice in Ohio where I spend my free time listening to audiobooks, true crime podcasts, playing board games and creating general crafty-things (cross stitching, anything involving my glue gun). I tend to have cross stitches I’ve made proudly displayed in my office, so be on the lookout during your sessions!
