Senior Counselor
Fully Licensed
Specialized in Trauma

“Take a deep breath to remember you are the child who lived through survival mode and the empowered adult who chose their healing.” Dr. Nicole LePera

 

My name is Abby and if you’re looking at my profile I can only imagine that means you are in the market for a counselor, which I just so happen to be! If this is your first time seeking therapy, I want to congratulate you on taking that first big step. It may seem scary to allow yourself to feel vulnerable, especially if you have been hurt in the past, but it is my goal to create an environment where you will feel safe and heard. If you have been to therapy before, and maybe did not have a super great experience, then I would like to thank you for giving it another go. Sometimes it takes a few tries to find someone who truly clicks with you and that is completely okay. 

I know that you are the expert of your own story; my job is to listen to that story and empower you to take back authorship so it is yours to tell. During the first session or two, I really like to get to know you as a person. After that, we become a team and work together to get you where you would like to be. I like to find a balance between being empathetic and being challenging, so you can take steps out of your comfort zone. My goal is to help you achieve your goals! I aim to create a solid therapeutic relationship that encourages trust, exploration, and laughter because life is too short and this world is too wild for us to not laugh every now and then! 

As a first-generation Mexican-American counselor, I feel very passionately about breaking the stigma associated with mental health in the Latino community. Although my Spanish isn’t 100% perfect, I feel fully comfortable operating in a bilingual session. I have experience working primarily with generational trauma, social anxiety, healing from hurtful parenting, and negative self-worth. If interested, I can also incorporate Christian spirituality upon request. 

I have a Bachelor of Science from UT in Human Development and Family Science and a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Franciscan University with a concentration in Crisis and Trauma Counseling. I come from a loud and proud Mexican American family and in my free time, I enjoy cooking, dancing, watching funny tiktoks, and clinically dissecting pop culture like the Twilight Saga (I also just like watching the movies). 

If you feel like we might be a good fit you can give me a call at 512/201-4501 ext. 275. I look forward to hearing from you!
