Introducing Me – Allison Gerdes!

I am in my mental health counseling master’s program at South Dakota State University, completing my outpatient counseling internship at Stein Counseling and Consulting Services Ltd. In addition, I provide behavioral intervention services for the Melrose-Mindoro School District. Originally from Holmen, WI, I recently moved back to the area after attending my master’s program in South Dakota. I have experience working with ADHD, adjustment, anger, anxiety, behavior challenges, depression, and stress. I work with clients of all ages, including children as young as three. I am passionate about working with children and adolescents and hope to specialize in child and adolescent counseling and play therapy. I use cognitive behavioral, strengths-based, and person-centered techniques with clients.
