Allison Palmisano, PsyD.  Louisiana Licensed Clinical Psychologist #1428 (ENFP, RavenPuff)

Meet Doctor Allison

“My name is Dr. Allison and I’m a doctor, but I’m different from the kind of doctor you are used to seeing at a check-up or when you get sick. I’m a doctor of feelings. A No-Ouch Doctor. There are no shots here. I went through lots of years of school to learn how to help kids like you going through big changes and dealing with big feelings.”

There are variations of this introduction based on, for example, a child’s age or the setting of the adult conversation, but the gist is the same.

I help people learn to manage big feelings.

There’s a reason why I compare coming to see me to a medical check-up. Kids learn the importance of taking care of one’s physical health early. While kids are used to going to the pediatrician, most have never heard of a feelings doctor.

I designed my private practice around building the ultimate safe place to address emotional health. 

 

Work with Me

I specialize in helping young children and their families come together to work through big feelings and big changes. Working with me will help you to bring out the best in your child and also yourself as a parent. In therapy, I help kids discover and develop their strengths. A proud Feelings Doctor, I am here to help you process and regulate difficult emotions. Committing to therapy will help families feel calm, cool, collected, and in control of their futures.
