    Allison Splaun, PhD, completed her doctoral degree in 2012 at The New School for Social Research. A primary focus of her studies was on treating adults and children using psychodynamic and integrative psychotherapy in both individual and group modalities. Allison is currently completing a fellowship at The University of Virginia where she treats individuals of all age groups with a wide variety of presenting problems including: trauma, relationship issues, depression, anxiety, severe and persistent mental illness, supporting family members of those with severe mental illness, psychotic disorders, as well as a range of childhood disorders and parenting concerns. Allison is also highly engaged in research and while at The New School, collaborated with her advisors, Howard and Miriam Steele, to evaluate a parent-child group therapy program and developed a new coding system for a child story-telling measure, The Attachment-Focused Coding System for Story Stems.
