Abi cardello


all about abi

Abi understands how intimidating therapy can be and works hard to create a safe and comfortable space for you. With her passionate and welcoming personality, Abi believes wholeheartedly that every person has intrinsic strengths, and in working with her, she looks to amplify and utilize those strengths to help you thrive. Abi understands that therapy is a process, where together you will work through the hard moments, as well as celebrating the great ones. 

She believes the therapy space should be free of judgment, a safe and open room to explore any topic. Abi utilizes a humanistic therapeutic style with strong collaboration. Abi works with you to build a treatment plan that suits you and your goals best.

With a background studying creativity and resilience, Abi ensures that you are well supported during this journey. No matter what you may be going through, Abi will be there every step of the way.

how she works

Aware that therapy does not match a one-size-fits-all approach, Abi works hard to ensure each session is tailored to what you need. Beyond creating the space to express any presenting problems, her goal is to help you build your therapy tool box to take with you past her office. Abi works with you to master coping skills, mindfulness practices, and perspectives that will stay with you beyond your sessions with her. 

With a strong sense of solution-focused practices, Abi will help you to pin-point your values and build a plan to reach your goals. Abi utilizes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques to help restructure thought patterns and habits that may be keeping you from living the life you deserve. She prioritizes finding the perfect treatment plan to meet your needs and knows that no two sessions you have together will be the same.

What do you do to de-stress? 

I choose three easy dinner meals to rotate to avoid mealtime stress, and plan at least one self-care event to look forward to throughout the week (ex: getting together with friends, taking myself to a movie, or visiting a bookstore).
