About me

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 a fantastic and has helped me a lot in navigating my stress and family issues.

Written on Oct 21, 2021 after therapy with Holly for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, parenting issues, self esteem, and coping with life changes

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.

I really enjoy working with Holly. Actually, I started in March and had to stop due to financial constraints, but I started having hard time with my anxiety and instead of going through my insurance I came back to Betterhelp specifically for her. I really feel better when I talk to her. I feel heard, and I feel she gives good feedback. She helps keep me accountable to my mental health and overall well-being.

I have been going through counseling with Holly for stress & anxiety. This was my first time going to counseling & I had no idea what to expect. I was pretty nervous about it and unsure but Holly has been great! Holly is very easy to talk to and always responds so quickly. I highly recommend Holly.

Holly is a compassionate and caring person. I feel very supported by her and leave our calls either feeling better or provoked to dig deeper or think differently, which is exactly what I need. She has helped me tremendously, and I strongly recommend her.

This was my first time doing therapy and I was extremely nervous. She made me realize that I had absolutely nothing to worry about. It was like talking to a friend. I’m so glad I was matched with Holly! I would recommend her to anyone

Honestly, I've known I've needed to talk about my crap fro awhile. I've tried talking it out before, but it never felt...right. like, there wasn't a connection. It's different with Holly. I feel at ease, like I can joke, and she pushes me to actually confront what I'm trying to look at.

So far, I've had three sessions, but this is the most comfortable I've been talking about my trauma, and I've already started feeling better. My brain still don't work great, but I feel better. So, thank you, Holly.
