Approach to Therapy

Abigail’s clinical work is strongly informed by Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) as well as existential, interpersonal, and multicultural frameworks. She focuses on helping clients reexamine their relationship with their thoughts and experiences so they can navigate life’s ups and downs with a greater sense of meaning, confidence, and flexibility. She tailors her approach to meet individual needs and values authenticity, candor, and humor in the therapeutic relationship.

Approach to Wellness

Abigail’s approach to wellness is to do one thing each day that she will be glad she did tomorrow, whether that means work, rest, or play. Abigail enjoys being active and considers exercise to be her daily “keystone habit.” She is a licensed Zumba instructor and loves discovering new music while dancing, kickboxing, and jogging. In her spare time, she enjoys drawing and crafting, binge watching TV, and spending time with her family, friends, and labradoodle, named Mr. Lloyd.
