Arkaya "Kady" Abbott

(LPC-S, NCC, DCC)

About Me

Hi!
Do you struggle with relationships?
Do you want your marriage to be better?
Do you struggle with depression or anxiety and just want to be happy?
Are you having trouble adjusting to a new situation? A divorce, a marriage, a move, living with in-laws or parents?
If you work with me, I can help you with the issues mentioned above.

My name is Arkaya Williams Abbott and I go by "Kady." I am a licensed professional counselor and a nationally certified counselor in the state of Alabama. In addition to the issues I mentioned above, I have over 20 years of experience working with adult men and women who struggle with substance use disorders (alcoholism and drug addictions), serious mental illnesses, and legal trauma in my private practice and in various agency settings.

My counseling approach is client centered and I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and Stages of Change as therapeutic interventions that will help you with the issues you struggle with. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from Auburn University and a Master's Degree in Counseling from the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

There is no doubt that asking for help is hard, however, I think counseling is one of the best gifts one can give to themselves!

Together, let's explore your issue and a path that leads to greater self-awareness and a better you!
I am an ally.

Kady has been absolutely patient and kind, listening to my issues and addressing each one of them, instead of giving a ";standard template answer." Thank you very much for your help thus far Kady!

Kady is insightful, kind, and understanding. I've been able to talk to her about things I thought I would never be able to tell anyone.
