Abigail is a Marriage and Family Therapist trainee working towards her Master’s in Counseling at California State University, Fullerton.  During her eight years as preschool director/teacher, Abigail provided stability and support for dozens of families facing the challenges of parenting, divorce, death, and other complex life transitions.  Through this experience, Abigail discovered her passion for working with families and individuals in a therapeutic setting.

Abigail enjoys partnering with people who feel hopeless, empty, worthless, and lost. Using a faith-based psychodynamic approach, she helps her clients find personal meaning, build authentic identities, develop healthier interpersonal patterns, and cultivate more rewarding relationships.  Having spent twenty-years navigating the dynamics of Christianity, Abigail welcomes the opportunity to help her clients explore their own faith experience. Acknowledging the Father as the true source of healing, she inspires her clients to tap into God’s rich resources of peace, joy, freedom, and strength. In the counseling room, Abigail creates a genuine and compassionate space for her clients to unpack their burdens and embark on a transformational journey.

In her free time, Abigail enjoys drinking green tea, reading non-fiction, journaling her philosophical thoughts on life, watercolor painting, and spending time with family, friends, and her Maker.
