About Connected Counseling

Get to know our professional Counselors

Our Story

In 2017 we joined together as a group.  We practice together to support one another as we support our clients.  We work better as a team, sharing our knowledge and experience with one another to provide the richest counseling experience we can to our clients who are striving for a better life experience.  

Our Approach

We take a holistic and wellness-based approach to personal growth.  We know that resolving personal, family, and relationship issues frees you up to live with more ease.  We offer you our training and expertise, to assist you in doing your own inner work which then manifests itself in outer life changes.  

Our Team

We are a team of licensed mental health professionals serving not only the residents of South Louisiana in person, but also offering phone or video counseling across the state.  We each have different backgrounds and expertise with a common interest in personal growth and inner peace.

Allison Saltzman

Allison Saltzman

MS, LPC

Allison’s passion is rooted in helping her clients cultivate joy and practice the art of being fully present in their lives. She has studied Jungian Psychology, holistic health, energy therapies, meditation and spirituality. Before becoming a psychotherapist, she was a massage therapist and grew to respect the link between the physical body and inner emotions, feelings, and experiences. Now, she offers in-person and remote sessions with the purpose of facilitating expansion and personal growth.

I teach people how to connect inward and move beyond thoughts, emotions, and events that happen in life. Moving beyond our conditioning allows us to experience freedom and peace, choosing what we really want in life. -Allison Saltzman MS, LPC

Kristin Barras

MS, PLPC

Play Therapy is Kristin’s specialty and passion. Feedback from play therapy, expressive arts, and sandplay can be very helpful in assisting parents and educators to best meet a child’s needs. Children build skills and have an outlet for their emotions. Kristin also helps adolescents and adults who are experiencing relationship issues, low self-esteem, abuse and trauma, depression, and anxiety. She focuses on building strength and empowerment.

Children express their innermost thoughts, feelings, and needs through the playing process. Using this information, I help children work through their inner conflicts with confidence. –Kristin Barras, MS, PLPC

Courtney Miller

When working with couples, she often uses The Gottman Method. Courtney works with depression, anxiety, self-esteem, grief, anger, communication, codependency, and more.

Although changing your life can be very challenging at times, your potential for growth and change really is infinite. –Courtney Miller, MS, LPC, LAC

Tammy Matte

Tammy Matte

MA, PLPC

Tammy is dedicated to enabling children to express themselves in ways that make sense to them while helping to prevent further damage as they grow into adulthood. Tammy believes that no matter what traumatic events they may have experienced, every child has an opportunity to grow into a whole and healthy adult. We all need help processing past events and emotions, and children need a specific type of help as they do not have all the benefits of time and experience to effectively express the pain, fear and confusion they have faced. Therapeutic playrooms are a designated space where children can learn to express and understand their feelings, resolve conflicts through reenactment and be nurtured into growth through the one-on-one attention of a warm and compassionate adult presence in the form of a trained therapist. Tammy’s first career was as an insurance agent. She then pursued her Master’s degree in Counseling from Colorado Christian University. Tammy’s interest in healing from abuse and trauma creates a genuine compassion, interest, and dedication to therapeutic work.

It can be a deeply frustrating challenge to understand what your child is trying to tell you when they express themselves so differently than adults. –Tammy Matte, ?
