Kristen Julia Abbate

(LPC)

About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, in the state of New Jersey, with over 15 years of experience working as a counselor, behavior modification and life coach. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse. I have counseled many children, families and individuals in a variety of settings.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Written by D.A. on Apr 03, 2021 after counseling with Kristen Julia for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, parenting issues, and adhd

I was nervous at first to even download the app but it has helped greatly. Kristen listens and responds without judgement, I’m getting comfortable with the idea that I’m sharing intimate details about my life with a “stranger”. Because she feels less like a threat and more like a knowledgeable friend
