ABBEY GILLER RATHE, MS, LPCC

THERAPY APPROACH

Abbey provides a non-judgmental and supportive atmosphere for all of her clients. She emphasizes a gentle, yet direct approach that is consistent with her client’s goals for therapy. She believes in meeting people where they are at and taking them where they want to go. Abbey has experience working with children and teens in both outpatient and day treatment settings. She treats concerns related to anxiety, adhd, autism, self-confidence, and identity development. 

 

Abbey provides Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), involving the teaching of mindfulness, cognitive restructuring, as well as behavioral experiments and exposures. She uses a person-centered approach, which emphasizes an unconditional positive regard for the client. This approach helps clients realize discrepancies between their self-image and the reality of their experience. This incongruence is what often leads to feelings of anxious distress. At this time, Abbey is offering both in-person and telehealth (virtual) therapy sessions. In her free time, Abbey enjoys spending time with family, exploring new restaurants with her husband, and going on walks with her golden retriever, Dakota.
