About me

Hi my name is Gabriella Abkarian, I graduated from Nova Southeastern University in Florida in 2009. I am a Licensed Mental Health counselor with 13 years of experience with a young and warm heart, positive attitude and creative approach that I love to introduce into my sessions. Throughout the years, I have acquired skills in motivational interviewing techniques, problem solving , crisis intervention, cognitive behavior therapy and more, which has given me the knowledge to be able to work with a variety age groups, as well as an array of cultural backgrounds. I believe that human beings do not have to struggle in silence and they have the power to be resilience and to heal when professional help is provided.
