Allison “Ali” Sprouse (she/her), MA/CAS, LPA, NCSP
Outpatient Psychotherapist in Knightdale
works with ages 3-13
Hello, my name is Ali Sprouse (she/her/hers). I am a Licensed Psychological Associate and an Outpatient Psychotherapist at Three Oaks Behavioral Health and Wellness in Knightdale. I received my master’s degree with a Certificate of Advanced Studies in School Psychology from East Carolina University. I am certified by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction as a School Psychologist II and am a Nationally Certified School Psychologist.
I began my career as a school psychologist for the public schools of eastern North Carolina, where I served for thirteen years in both Nash and Wake Counties. I bring a knowledge of assessment, behavioral consultation/collaboration, and educational systems into the therapeutic problem-solving process with families. I enjoy working with young children, elementary-age children, and adolescents with a variety of challenges which may cause them anxiety, emotional pain, or difficulty relating to friends or family members. I am LGBTQIA+ affirming. My therapeutic approaches include Child Centered Play Therapy (CCPT), Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Social Thinking, Art Therapy, Sand Tray, and Mindfulness.
I believe that children and adolescents who are struggling need at least three things: a connected bond with a caring person, a safe place to work through strong emotions, and non-judgemental guidance to help achieve their own insights in pursuit of meaningful change. I truly embrace the idea that play is a vehicle for communication with children of all ages. While working with children and adolescents individually, I recognize the entire family as part of the client network. I will strive to work closely with parents to coordinate services with schools and adjunct providers as need to bring a wholistic approach to care. I look forward to meeting you and working alongside your child and family.
I have had the pleasure of living in Knightdale for the past 25 years. In my spare time, I can be found enjoying quality time with my family and friends. I love getting my hands dirty in my ever-evolving garden, attending yoga classes, and cuddling with my dog whenever possible.
