Allynn Young is a Licensed Professional Counselor and native Oklahoman. She received her Master’s degree in counseling from Oklahoma State University after completing her undergraduate work at The University of Oklahoma. After spending several years in administrative positions, Allynn felt called to pursue a career in counseling. Once the journey began, she found that counseling was not simply a career choice, but a call to service.

Allynn provides an environment of compassion, empathy, openness, and safety in which she can collaborate with her clients to improve their self-awareness, resilience, and satisfaction with life.  She incorporates an intuitive and integrated approach to therapy by utilizing a variety of orientations and interventions based on the client’s individual needs. She enjoys working with a wide range of issues, including depression, anxiety, relationship/family concerns, self-esteem/self-empowerment, grief and loss, and creating more meaning and purpose in one’s life.

Allynn is trained in EMDR therapy and regularly integrates it with clients to address trauma-related issues.  Trauma is defined as “anything that overwhelms the brain’s ability to cope.” When a client engages in EMDR therapy they have the opportunity to release traumatic blocks and restore empowerment and peace.  Allynn is continuously amazed by the freedom EMDR brings to clients.

In addition to serving the community through counseling, Allynn spent 8 years serving her country as a United States Marine. Her experience in the Marine Corps opened her eyes to the unwavering resilience of the human spirit and the steady courage of those who sacrifice so much.
