Biography of Dr. Jeff Allen:
“DocJeff” is a Certified Addictions Professional (CAP) as well as a Certified Mental Health Professional (CMHP). . He is also qualified by the ICRC (International Certification Reciprocity Consortium/Alcohol and Other Drug Abuses). He is also authorized as a Substance Abuse professional (SAP) by the Department of Transportation (DOT) regulation: 49 CFR Part 40 to evaluate employees who have violated a DOT drug and/or alcohol regulation and makes recommendations concerning education, treatment, follow-up testing, and aftercare. He also conducts anger management classes (individually or groups) pursuant to the US Department of Health and Human Services Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (SAMHSA).
He has been in practice since 2004 and preceding opening his office was a director of clinical services for a co-occurring residential treatment center for several years. His reasoning for opening his own private practice was to simply “give back” to the very town in which he lived the majority of his life.
His counseling approach is client-centered and casual. He believes in using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. One unique advantage his office uses is the availability of his wife to assist when doing relationship issues with couples and she is always present when a female client is in need of counseling. This seems to be helpful in helping couples knowing the “female” perspective is important.
Dr. Allen completed his undergraduate work at WarnerUniversity and received his masters and Doctorate of Philosophy in Counseling from Anderson Theological Seminary. He has completed additional post-graduate work at NovaSoutheasternUniversity as well as the University of South Florida.
Dr. Allen is married to Kim. They have three dogs named Samson, Hercules, and Molly. They reside in the country on five acres and enjoy the outdoors.
The mission of his office is to provide competent, caring counseling at affordable rates to his hometown and surrounding communities.
