About Me

Hi! I’m so glad you’re here today. My name is Abigail Garcia-Garwicki, but you can just call me Abby, and I’m a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) in both Maryland and Florida. I have been in the field for over 10 years working in community based mental health/developmental services, and provided direct counseling services for almost 8 years in both the community and private practice. I have had the pleasure of working with individuals living with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, parenting, life transitions, substance abuse, and trauma/PTSD to name a few.

In practice I like to have a more holistic approach pulling from various modalities, in particular EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy). My initial focus is to help you manage the emotional and physical response to triggers, in order to begin working on breaking the experiences that have led to them. I want to create an environment where you can feel safe in exploring uncomfortable feelings and working on moving through them to get to the other side. I am also a huge advocate of self-care and feel that when we take the time to build our self-care tool box we are better able to manage the ups and downs that life throws at us and process the emotions and daily life stressors in a more effective manner.

My hope is that as we work together we will work towards a more whole and fulfilling life. I look forward to working together, meeting you wherever you are, and seeing shift that happens when change begins to happen.
