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!

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.

I have been working with Dabney just a few weeks and she’s been very helpful. I’m working on several different challenges and she has given me worksheet and encouragement for each different situation. I’m glad I finally decided to get some help and I look forward to my progress with Dabney’s help
