Abigail Kelsey Judge

LPC

About me

I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Missouri. I am a certified child and adolescent therapist and this has provided 13 years of working with all ages of families in varying transitions. I have worked in a variety of settings utilizing individual, family, and group therapy to help clients move forward through their crisis to successful life patterns. The crisis may be death of a loved one, job loss, a missing toothpaste cap, running out of gas on the freeway, or any number of things that steamroll emotions into unpredictable happenings. I enjoy people and helping them problem solve. I believe help is best when desired as it increases engagement in the therapeutic process. I work to gain rapport and trust quickly by being up front, purposeful, and present with clients. A person’s time is valuable and we will use it as you direct to build an empowering experience. I look forward to working with you. Please let me know if there is a timeframe that works better for you. I’m flexible with earlier mornings, later evenings and weekends.

Written on Jan 30, 2023 after therapy with Abigail for 1 week on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, and compassion fatigue

Ms. Abigail is very professional. First, she assures you that only you and her are present at the moment and she's wearing a headset to make sure that nobody else would be able to hear us. Second, she listens to me and she makes me feel heard. She gives appropriate worksheets to work on and it really helps. She gives professional advice and opinions and she will really make sure that no matter how hard it is for you, she is willing to work with you no matter how long it takes just to help you heal and recover from the trauma and depression. She is also like a friend at the same time because she listens without judging you.

Abby is a great therapist, listener, storyteller, and generally an overall excellent human being. Expect to laugh while you're digging deep. Her humor is delivered dry, so be warned. Can't recommend enough.
