If you are reading this then it means you are ready for help; something is no longer working for you in your life and you are finally ready to take a leap.
Hi! My name is Abby Young. I am here as a therapist to meet you where you are in your journey. In life we have experiences that can and do alter how we go through life. I call this our lens in life. Similar to lenses in a pair of glasses, when the prescription strength of the lens is just right you can see life clearly.
You are here reading this and probably have some idea of what you want different, but it is difficult to know how to change it, otherwise your life would already be exactly as you want it. This is where my skills come in helping you create the lens you want to experience life through.
I work with the full spectrum of concerns, from mild to severe, all with care and compassion. Part of my philosophy is helping you to instill HOPE and INNER STRENGTH again or perhaps finding it for the first time. It is difficult to grow into a life you want without these two components.
I work as though therapy is a multi-sensory experience. I use grounding scents to help with the anxiousness that often comes when starting therapy and I engage you around a holistic approach, because we all are multidimensional.
Hypnotherapy is a modality I use to work with your subconscious when your conscious mind blocks the full processing of emotions. Hypnotherapy can also be used in such a way as to help with habits, such as smoking, emotional eating, addictions and many others.
