Services for Women

Women have unique needs.  For this reason, we offer a suite of services designed to meet the needs that are specific to you as a women.

As a result of my combined educational, personal, and professional experience,” says Amy McAllaster, M.A., M.A., LPC and owner of McAllaster & Associates Counseling, “I have grown to understand and appreciate the very unique psychological, emotional, biological, spiritual, and relational stresses that come with life as a female.  Whether you are getting married, getting divorced, in a relationship or not in a relationship, having a baby or have lost your baby…I am here.  If you can’t figure out your moods and your hormones, if you know your struggles are specific to your life as a female, I am here.

I thoroughly enjoy working with women who are stuck, struggling, in life transition, or who are simply wanting to clarify their thoughts and emotions and work towards a more satisfying, fulfilling life.”
