Allison Tesarek Dingle, M.Ed., LPC

Allison Tesarek Dingle grew up in the Houston area and has always lived in Texas. She graduated from Texas A&M University (Gig ‘em Aggies) in May 2013 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology. After graduation, Allison returned home to attend graduate school at the University of Houston. During graduate school, Allison gained valuable experience working with young children as a toddler teacher at St. Mark's Lutheran Church and School.

Allison began working with Dr. Forrester in June 2014 as a practicum student while she earned her Master of Education degree in counseling from the University of Houston. She graduated in 2015 and is continuing her work with Dr. Forrester as a Licensed Professional Counselor.

Working with Dr. Forrester allows Allison the opportunity to work with young children and their families, while also being involved in a collaborative environment. She believes that early intervention is key and works with children and their families in various ways. Allison works with children in individual sessions, dyad sessions, as well as off-site (in their school environments) using play therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy approaches.

Allison enjoys working with young children and their families. You will know this right away because she always greets her families with a smile. She enjoys interacting with children in a way that helps them to meet their goals and promote their development. Allison focuses on each child’s strengths and the unique needs of their family. She understands the importance of parent and family involvement in helping any child reach their goals, thus she communicates often with parents through the course of therapy.

Allison spends time making sure both the child and his/her family feel comfortable and cared for. This is why she offers a friendly and welcoming environment for the child, and makes herself available for questions and consultation with parents and family.

If you have any questions about Allison's availability, please feel free to give us a call.
