Abby is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and certified EMDR and TFCBT therapist. She earned her graduate degree from Pepperdine University, and currently works as the Clinical Director at Monte Nido Vista. Drawing on existential and narrative techniques, along with her love of music and absurdist literature, Abby encourages discovery of the authentic self and reminds clients that we author our own lives. Her background as a DIR®/Floortime therapist for children with Autism enhances her ability to build upon each client’s strengths and interests to further individualize their treatment. Abby is also a certified yoga instructor. Abby brings her creative, sometimes quirky, energy to our Food & Feelings and Body & Soul groups and co-facilitates our Family & Alumni group.
