Abigail has a passion for helping others understand and accept themselves while encouraging positive changes in both thought patterns and belief systems. She utilizes an approach that incorporates existentialism which means that she believes that every person is fundamentally empowered to control how they react to life experiences. Abigail helps her clients understand that it is not so much what happens to you as how you choose to interpret and integrate that experience into your worldview; making meaning of each situation in a holistic way that incorporates a person’s values and set of beliefs is Abigail’s great passion as a counselor. She also employs Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as she loves to help clients understand why they do what they do by helping them understand that their behavior is the result of core beliefs. Her methodology is to help clients trace the behavior they want to work on to its root which involves exploring underlying thoughts and emotions. Beliefs are the powerhouse behind feelings and thought patterns and so Abigail seeks to help people uncover the why behind their worldview and the result of that process is clients getting to replace negative beliefs that no longer serve them with positive, empowering ones that produce thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that propel the client towards the life they want. Abigail also utilizes Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness techniques for issues such as anxiety, depression, and personality disorders.

Abigail is drawn to the counseling profession because of her interest in helping others and her passion to see people flourish. Her particular focus is on helping clients heal from trauma and her dream is to help empower survivors from pain of any kind to become the best versions of themselves. For example, she has experience working with survivors of severe trauma including young women rescued from human trafficking and teenagers struggling with eating disorders. Seeing lives restored and souls healed from shame and guilt has been one of the most impactful factors that led Abigail to seek a career in mental health.

Abigail received her Masters in Professional Counseling from Dallas Baptist University. Her former work experiences includes not only mental health but also tutoring and childcare as well as personal assistant and administrative work. A Texas native, she currently resides in the Irving area with her husband where they enjoy cooking, music, and traveling together.

Abigail believes that within every person is everything he or she needs to heal, grow, progress, and recover. It is her great joy to walk with people on their journey to wholeness and self-love and she strives to establish a safe, positive, and empathic experience with every person she meets. A client’s decision to pursue counseling is one that deserves to be treated with the highest level of integrity and respect and Abigail’s commitment is to establish a mutually trusting, honest relationship with every client she works with.
