Alliance Counseling & Therapeutic Services

Alliance Counseling Services is currently practicing both in-office and telehealth. 

What is Telehealth

Telehealth is a form of video conferencing allowing  therapists to provide services to patients outside of the office.  Telehealth requires access to a private place and a computer/tablet/smart phone with a camera and high-speed internet. Alliance Counseling Services will provide you with access to a secure HIPAA compliant videoconferencing software free of charge. All you have to do is be on your device and logged on at the time of your appointment. 


  • Alliance Counseling & Therapeutic Services offers individual counseling and substance use treatment to adults focusing on mental health, communication, personal adjustment issues, DWI aftercare and LADC Evaluations.  Alliance Counseling Services is informed by narrative, systemic, cognitive-behavioral, and psychodynamic thinking. We at Alliance Counseling Services believe that therapy can provide a space to solve problems and heal wounds. Within a therapeutic relationship, therapy can provide structure for people to build strengths, support, and resources, and to discover solutions. It can also be a place to continue to grow and to learn more about yourself.

  • Treatment is client-centered, strengths-based, and utilizes a variety of interventions based on Evidenced Based Practices such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-Based Therapy, and Eye Movement Desesitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).

  • Most insurances are accepted at Alliance Counseling Services.  Therapy is based on a fifty (50) minute duration and can happen on a weekly or biweekly basis.  LADC Evaluations are of a three (3) hour duration and are NOT billed to insurance companies. 

Alliance Counseling Services is by appointment only.  If you are interested in working with us, please call or email to make an appointment.  We offer both day and evening appointments.  If you want therapy with your partner, please include that person's email contact so we can reply to both. 
Elizabeth Palladino (epalladino@alliancecounselingservices.net) is available Tuesday from 2pm-7pm and Friday mornings and provides in office individual therapy to adults.  
Kristen Welch(kwelch@alliancecounselingservices.net ) is available Monday through Thursday 9am-5pm and Fridays for LADC Evaluations only.  Kristen is currently providing telehealh and in-office appointments and works with individual adults, couples and substance use disorders.

Unless the driving conditions are dangerous or you have an emergency situation, all sessions that are missed or not cancelled within 24-hours will be charged the "out of pocket" rate of the session of $100, as insurance companies cannot be billed for missed sessions.  The missed seesion fee ($100) would need to be made in full prior to next apointment.
