About me

Dabney has a passion for working with people struggling with a variety of issues, including dysfunctional behavior rooted in shame, addiction, self-loathing, low self-esteem, perfectionism, trauma and abuse and grief/loss. I am driven to help individuals heal their wounds, develop a new relationship with their thoughts and transform their lives. I am passionate about helping my clients reach their full potential by living their lives more confidently and authentically. I have over twelve years of experience as a therapist and have provided therapy in individual and group settings. I also have experience helping clients navigate everyday sources of stress such as relationship problems, family conflicts, depression, anxiety, parenting issues, anger management, and school/work issues. I have worked with children, adolescents, young adults and families, and provide compassionate, non-judgmental care. I use an integrative, client-centered orientation that draws from multiple theories and techniques which includes: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Attachment-Based Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused Therapy and Trauma-Focused Therapy. I am a welcoming and caring therapist who respects and empathizes with my clients' experiences without any judgement. You don't have to carry your pain and burdens alone. I look forward to working with you!

I’d be lost and confused without Dabney’s help in identifying unhealthy behaviors and setting boundaries. Her natural ability to actively listen and empathize has helped me find sanity during a very insane time in my life.

Written on Aug 15, 2022 after therapy with Dabney for 3 months on issues concerning depression, and trauma and abuse

I came in with a lot of prior knowledge and experience in myself, but her expertise has helped me more than I ever thought. I didn't know where I could go from where I was. I had tried a lot of methods to get me on the right track. She's very kind and thoughtful and patient. I would definitely recommend giving her a try even if you think you know yourself well. You never know what may help : )

Dabney has always been attentive and understanding. She listens, offers excellent advice, and is a great troubleshooter. I would recommend Dabney to anyone!

From the beginning I was scared to start therapy. She guided me through the process and assured me.. it would be scary, but we are in this together. She is honest. Like a friend but doesn't cross the the boundaries of therapist/ client. She checks in often, when I forgot to.. and if I have a moment of stress.. she will respond to emails in a timely manner. She is to the point and logical, but is very capable of taking my obsure/random thought and formatting them, so I can even understand my own brain better. She's a cheerleader. You can tell Dabney wants her clients to be well. I highly recommend, and hope she never quits. She has gotten me out of the darkest times. It feels good to have a plan and someone who cares

Dabney is attentive and knows exactly how to conduct interactions to help me better understand my emotions. Our sessions have contributed positively to my inner dialogue, making it easier to cope with the stressors of everyday life. She is friendly and personable, making each call comfortable but stays focused on my goals! I have seen many counsellors, and Dabney is certainly one of the best. I couldn’t recommend her any higher.
