About Me

I believe in building relationships in therapy that free people to find balance in their own lives. As a therapist, I focus on you. I want to understand your thoughts and feelings. I don’t judge; I listen. I don’t pressure; I provide a safe place. We all have important things to hold onto. We all go through times we need to let go. Sometimes it is easy to feel lost. Let me help you find your way.

While the most important person in the therapeutic relationship is you, maybe you would like to know a little about me before we start. Over the past 15 years, I have worked in the areas of children’s mental health; adult mental health; chemical dependency and social services. My practice includes everything from complex mental health diagnoses to people just going through a rough patch. I offer support to all age groups and family systems. I provide cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy, emotionally focused therapy and narrative therapy. Are you having relationship difficulties? Experiencing life adjustments? Suffering grief? Recovering from trauma? Seized by anxiety? Maybe you just want help reaching a goal? Whatever balance you seek, I am here to help.

I never thought going through BetterHelp would be this great. I’ve been released from so much built up anxiety and been able to be myself more, my mental health has improved, and I’m on to better and healthier life style.

Abigail is truly amazing, excellent counselor/therapist, and always there when you’re in need of any questions/guidance. So humbled and pleased to know people are there to help anyone through this app. Thank you!

Abigail and I work very well together. I really appreciate her following up on suggestions to see how they worked, and then encouraging me to keep going on the stuff that works.

I was in a dark, lost place when I first talked to Abigail. She assured me that I was going to be ok and get through this. With her guidance and encouragement, I am feeling better. I love the ease of being able to reach out if I need. Helps to know she is there an accessible.

In our first session, she listened to me but also talked me through a few of the situations I shared with her. She gave the outsiders perspective that I was needing! Professional and easy to get ahold of.

Abigail is offering good support and ideas to help me.
I like that she is not afraid to initiate contact while I am on vacation to “check-in”.
