I think we can all agree that being a human is hard. Often the obstacles we encounter in life do not miraculously go away, but instead we must learn how to co-exist with the hard things. Through our work together, I hope to empower you to do the hard things. My goal is to ensure you always feel comfortable to share the messy and painful parts of your life, as well as your moments of joy and celebration, as it is my belief that we must feel it all.
As your therapist I will help provide skills and tools to help enhance your life and relationships. Each person has an individualized journey, and we can work towards healing in an authentic and collaborative framework.
I enjoy working with individuals from all backgrounds and belief systems. I have several years of experience supporting individuals and families in crisis, as well as dealing with acute grief and loss. Whether you are new to therapy or just haven’t found the right therapist, I would be honored to be a part of your journey to growth and healing.

Abby is a truly wonderful therapist and I love working with her. She is remarkably judgment-free and kind (which of course all therapists should be). She offers genuine, objective and useful advice and support for any and all of my concerns and anxieties. As well, she has found the roots of some of my anxieties/worries that I had never fully considered myself. I feel comfortable and safe with her, and can already see improvement in my train-of-thought. I am very grateful for the fact that the first therapist I was matched with on BetterHelp ended up being such a great fit for me.

Very caring and responsive, I feel as though she's seen what I have and can relate to it. I would recommend her quickly and without second thought to a friend.
