Live Fully By Living Your Truth
Humans Beings Before Anything Else
My name is Abby and I'm a human being. Yes, I'm a licensed clinical social worker— and yes, I have more than 6 years of experience working with children, adolescents and adults facing a variety of life’s challenges. Yet what's most important to me, is that my clients understand that I see myself as a human being before anything else; I see my clients in the same way. Their traumas, stressors, job titles, sexualities, and religious affiliations are always secondary to the fact that like me, they too are human beings.
As a licensed mental health practitioner, I help my clients understand and love who they are on the most cellular level. I work closely with them to embrace their truth, and celebrate their individual authenticity regardless of what that looks like compared to anyone else's. While I use a variety of modalities, including CBT, solution-focused brief therapy, DBT, strength based therapy and motivational interviewing, I don't believe that any human fits neatly into any one box. I will work with you to customize your care and decide which methods and their respective elements are best suited to help meet your needs.
I celebrate all paths and deeply honor the invitation to help you walk yours.
- Stress, Anxiety
- Self esteem
- Compassion fatigue
I also have experience in Addictions, Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Trauma and abuse, Intimacy-related issues, Eating disorders, Sleeping disorders, Parenting issues, Anger management, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder, Coping with life changes, Coaching, ADHD

I had a brief but productive experience working with Abby. In a short time she helped me focus on root causes and identify paths forward. She even gave her best advice in recommending another provider when she felt it would result in the best treatment for me--thereby passing the Miracle on 34th Street test.
Abby is perfect. She understands me and knows exactly how to talk to me.
She is great. Her medical background allows us to use metaphors I really grasp since I too am in healthcare. She’s empathetic and I feel like I’m talking to a knowledgeable friend not just a counselor. Couldn’t be happier.
Abby is an awesome counselor! She is able to make sense of everything in my head and able to help me make sense of it. She also helps me feel better about myself and doesn't invalidate my feelings. She also is an extremely helpful ally on my tough journey of life.
I’ve gotten to meet with Abby 3 times so far and every time I feel better and more confident in my choice to begin online counseling. She is qualified, cares, and has the ability to relate to what I say. It’s amazing.
I am so happy that Abby was assigned to me as my counselor because she is BEYOND amazing. I am always looking forward to our conversations and I always feel better & happier after each session. She really understands where I am coming from and what I am feeling. She cares so much about what I am going through and that comes through in our chats. Her realness keeps things funny and lighthearted which is absolutely needed. She literally just gets it and I love her for that. Highly recommend.
Extremely knowledgeable and able to adapt to situation. Felt comfortable with her right from the start. You can tell she has a lot of experience and doesn’t make us uncomfortable talking about difficult things.
Abby is incredible. She made me feel welcomed, supported, and cared for all within a few minutes. She was great at listening but also relating to me. She lifted me up and has made me feel like the goals I want to achieve can be obtained. So happy to be working with her and would highly recommend her.
