Get to know Abbie

Driven by experiences

Abbie did not plan on working in the mental health field originally. However, she became passionate about it after gaining some experience in it. She recognizes that it is an underserved industry considering so many individuals experience at least some type of mental health disorder. Another factor that drives Abbie is her own experiences with anxiety and the coping skills that she has found useful in managing it. She enjoys sharing similar tools with others.

Motivated to Help Others

Her favorite aspect of her job is that she feels she can spend more time with those seeking help. For example, she is able to really assess what they are going through and work with them to develop a treatment plan that is a good fit for them. In her opinion, utilizing both medication management and traditional therapy together will provide the best outcome. The ability to help people take these steps is very motivating for her each day.

For Abbie, the greatest reward in her work is knowing that she made a difference for someone. There are a lot of ups and downs in the mental health industry, which makes the positives that much sweeter. For instance, she has a lot of experience with crisis and trauma situations. These can be some of the most difficult situations to process, but Abbie does everything she can to help people get back to a happy, healthy state of mind. This includes teaching people skills and coping tools to help get themselves through difficult times.

Get direction for your life!

Emotions are stupid

Most of our poor decisions and behaviors that we wish we could re-do are driven by our feelings. In most cases we are probably reacting from an emotion and not even really thinking!

Oppositional Defiant Disorder

ODD is one of the most common behavioral disorders among kids. Unfortunately, people exhibiting these behaviors are sometimes mislabeled as "naughty" or "bad," which can be damaging.

Connecting With Your Teen

Regulate your emotions and then engage in co-regulation with your teen from a place of curiosity and compassion.
