More about me

Licensing: LPC
Years in Practice: 7

I am a licensed professional counselor in Virginia with over 7 years of experience working with children, adolescents, and adults. I have worked with a variety of presenting issues to include anxiety, depression, grief, stage of life issues, stress management, career challenges, parenting problems, communication, and spiritual issues. I take special focus in helping people address emotional turmoil, negative thinking patterns, and harmful personal narratives.

My goal as a therapist is to give you a space to be heard and feel understood. I take a person-centered approach and focus on how thoughts, feelings, and behavior are all related to one another, using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I also look at relationships and attachment styles. I provide opportunities to look at things from a new perspective, gain insight into situations and emotions, and teach practical skills to help manage uncomfortable feelings and situations. Above all, I will approach you with respect and without judgment, and tailor our sessions to meet your needs and the goals you have in mind.

It takes courage to take the first step to seek help in pursuing a happier, more fulfilling life, and it would be my privilege to walk alongside of you in your journey.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $35 to $80 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Abby has been a great therapist to me and has helped me get a deeper perspective/understanding of my own thoughts. Each session I feel seen, heard, and not judged which helps being truly transparent. I always want to recommend her to my friends whenever they are seeking therapy.

My experience with Abby Brentner is going well. She listens to what you have on your mind and tries her best to find good coping mechanisms so you can alleviate any mental pain. She gives out assignments after most sessions so you can write down a plan on how to cope with depression.
