About Me

Leon Abbey, M.A., LCPC is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and Certified Trauma Professional with over four years of experience in community mental health. I firmly believe that the unfolding of one's narrative requires a compassionate witness and validation, fostering insights into oneself and others. Therefore, my foremost priority is cultivating a safe, collaborative, and culturally sensitive therapeutic space that respects client choice and identity. Trained in the EMDR treatment approach, Mr. Abbey has recognized and witnessed EMDR as a versatile primary or adjunct modality to treat issues beyond trauma; successfully treating clients along the diagnostic continuum(anger/stress management, anxiety, phobias, avoidance and depression). Moreover, as an integrative counselor, Mr. Abbey recognizes the importance of treating the entire person and acknowledge the interconnectedness of physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. Leon offers counseling to individuals seeking to integrate their spiritual and faith-based beliefs and identity into their therapeutic journey. Mr. Abbey has extensive experience in integrating a Christian worldview to understand and address clients' issues. With a holistic approach to healing and an unwavering commitment to client-centered care, Mr. Abbey aims to demonstrate a compassionate and comforting presence by accompanying clients in processing and making sense of their world and guiding them to a place where light, hope, peace, and purpose can be known.
