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 move to new area, a new job, recently single or divorced?
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 therapist in the state of Alabama. In addition to the issues I mentioned above, I have over 29 years of experience working with adult men and women who struggle with substance use disorders (alcoholism and drug addictions) and serious mental illnesses.

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 bring clarity to the issues clouding your life.
I am an ally.

I never would have believed that online therapy could help so much. Kadie is wonderful. She shows empathy and affection and offers solutions or different ways of looking thing. Would you make me think and I believe become a better person? I strongly suggest her.

Kady has been more than my online therapist, she is a confidant and someone I trust. She listens to how I feel and validates my emotions. She is respectful of our time and is conscious of connection and how the conversation is going. She also does a great job at relating to my experiences by sharing personal examples which I deeply appreciate. I am grateful that she is a reliable support resource.
