I am Abby Glisson, a Registered Clinical Social Work Intern, whose passion is working with children and adolescents. I’m also experienced in working with adults with various emotional needs and those challenged by their past. I love helping people navigate their way to live a valued life. Creating a space filled with compassion and empathy is my priority, as it will allow people to safely be themselves and express their challenges. Connection and trust are key to making it easier to speak openly about one’s journey and goals.
My therapeutic approach involves using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT). These evidenced-based treatments help improve emotional flexibility and incorporate healthy coping strategies to manage life’s difficult moments. I also have advanced training in working with individuals that have experienced traumatic situations in their lives. I am actively engaged with clients through the therapeutic process, monitoring their progress regularly, and engaging the family as needed. By working with me, clients and their families develop a better understanding of their strengths, their challenges, and what is important to them.
I hope to have you join me as you move through the waves of life while remaining true to yourself.
Abby enjoys reading, watching a good movie, being outdoors, and spending time with her fiancé and dog.
