Abby Barlament MSW, LICSW
"I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, self-compassion, mindfulness, and grounding techniques to help people regulate their emotions and cope with stressful life events. Decreasing maladaptive coping strategies and implementing alternative choices into routines is also a focus of mine. I enjoy helping people utilize their strengths and tap into their own resilience."

Our experience with Abby for the past 3 months has been wonderful. She has helped us through so much, as we learn to manage & cope with my young son's anxiety. She is very friendly, great with talking with kids, non-judgemental, and does a wonderful job explaining/showing coping methods.
