Hi there and welcome to the first step in making a positive change. My name is Holly Abbott and I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Alabama and Georgia. I am also nationally certified as a therapist. I have 12 plus years of working with people from all backgrounds. In the past, I have worked in the school system, private practice and with local agencies to help youth and adolescents, individuals and families. I have experience in working with a wide range of concerns and mental health issues, but a few examples are trauma/abuse, ADHD, anxiety/depression, Autism, relationship issues, grief/loss, parenting concerns and life changes.
I love people of all ages and backgrounds and feel that I have a calling to help anyone work through difficult times and situations. Showing compassion, acceptance and understanding are only a few of my qualities. I am easy to talk with and aim to create a safe and non-judging environment for you. My counseling approach ranges from cognitive-behavioral, solutions focused, trauma focused cognitive behavior and reality. However, I focus on the client and tailor what is necessary to help you accomplish your goals in therapy.
Welcome to the first step in making a positive change in your life. This is journey that I am committed to take with you as you seek to live a more happy, meaningful and fulfilling life. I look forward to working with you!

Holly is great! She listens to my concerns and helps look at things in new perspectives. She lets you guide each session and makes sure you feel heard and understood with no judgement. 10/10 recommend her!

Holly very quickly makes you feel comfortable. She listens and validates your feelings and helps you see the things you do that aren't the best (guilty) for your mental health. She is very "real" and not clinical in her approach at all, which makes you feel like you're talking with a friend.
