HI, I AM ABBY

 

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

I like bringing a warm yet goofy energy to sessions that encourages you to be authentic and comfortable. I’ll be there listening and reflecting back the things I notice when you are processing through whatever is coming, no matter what it may be. I won’t pull you along or “break down” your walls, but instead walk alongside you in your journey of discovery.

More About Me

Background

My theoretical orientation is a hybrid of a humanistic, person-centered, and strengths based approach. More simply, this means I understand that people have the strength within themselves to grow and make less harmful choices. Even when it feels like things are coming out sideways, I truly believe people are resilient and powerful.

I want to work with you to identify those “sideways things” and help you realign with a path that ultimately feels good to you. Therapy is an incredible journey and I look forward to walking alongside you.

Specialties

As a body positive therapist, I love working with folx exploring sex, intimacy, and identity. Through a feminist, sex positive lens, I work with couples and individuals as they work on issues relating to:

  • Gender exploration
  • Sexual orientation
  • Sexual trauma
  • Navigating non-monogamy
  • Exploring kinks
  • Differences in desire
  • Processing body image related to dysphoria and/or dysmorphia
  • Working through shame related to sex/sexuality
Personal Interests

In my free time, I enjoy being out in nature and hiking in Minnesota’s state parks. I love making things, observing the changes of the moon and seasons, and biking all over!
