The struggles we face in life can be overwhelming at times, so it is helpful to have a caring professional provide guidance and support. By working through the painful experiences of our past, we can better equip ourselves to fulfill our potential in the future. I am a licensed mental health counselor with over 10 years of experience who is ready to provide you with the tools to help you heal, cope, and fulfill your personal goals. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns such as: depression, generalized anxiety, panic disorder, specific phobias, OCD, PTSD, and Bipolar Disorder. I have also helped individuals who have experienced emotional or physical trauma, parenting concerns, relationship issues and career challenges. My role as your counselor would be to incorporate multiple therapeutic approaches to provide you therapy that is tailored to your own unique experiences.
My counseling style is warm and empathetic. I believe in treating everyone with compassion and respect. I have worked with a broad range of individuals from many different types of cultures and backgrounds--I embrace open-mindedness and welcome diversity. I typically utilize Cognitive-Behavioral techniques when working with clients but I sometimes combine this with Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness training, Strengths-Based solutions and Psychodynamic theories and techniques.
It takes courage to take the first step towards a more fulfilling life. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support you and guide your on your journey. I look forward to working with you!

Abbey has been a huge blessing in my life. She responds quickly, thoughtfully, and very compassionately. As an American living abroad, having a counselor that can communicate with me, and that I feel comfortable communicating with, is a huge help. I would recommend her to anyone.
She is very good and writes me back everyday. Makes me think about who I am.
Abbey is warm, supportive and great at helping me take a step back and see what practical steps I can take to help myself.
Very patient, very understanding and compassionate, Abbey has been so helpful in getting to the bottom of my actions and feelings! It's the kindness and the warmth, the non-judgmental approach that allowed me to open up and feel comfortable with sharing such intimate feelings. I don't know where I would be without her support.
