About Me

I am currently a 15 year licensed social worker in the state of Michigan. I work with a wide range of issues and age ranges. I am well versed in life transitions, trauma, grief, loss, anxiety, and depression. I have also spent a lot of time working with people who have cancer.

My therapy style is warm and caring, but honest. My sincere desire is to help people lead happier, fuller lives. That may involve examining patterns of thinking, relationships, and trying new things. I really love helping kids find the potential that they already have inside of them. I use CBT therapy, strengths perspective and goal-oriented therapy to help you get to where you want to be.

Abbie is so kind and positive- it’s really the kind of help I need at this point in my life. She helps me untangle my thoughts and shine light on what is important. Very thankful for this chance to help my mind- looking forward to continuing our sessions.

I’ve been working with Abbie for a few weeks and she’s been really great. She’s positive but also direct about the challenges I’m facing & offers great suggestions (also a variety of suggestions) to approach them. I look forward to talking to her about what’s going on. Sometimes it’s hard to hear things you don’t want to hear, or make changes you know you should but keep procrastinating. Abbie has been understanding but practical and supportive in her advice and in being a shoulder to lean on. Overall I’ve noticed tremendous improvement with my mental health working with her over the past few weeks.

I've been using BetterHelp for several weeks now and I really like it. Abbie has been very helpful, thoughtful, insightful, all the "ful"s :) I look forward to continuing our work together.
