Esther Abta MSW, LADC

Certified Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselor, Psychotherapist

ABOUT

I will help you improve your mood with integrative approaches to treating the mind and body. I specialize in using complementary and alternative methods such as nutrition, meditation/mindfulness, herbal medicine, and counseling to treat trauma, depression, anxiety, and substance abuse. My approach is holistic, solution oriented, and strengths-based focus through a trauma-informed lens.

By understanding your strengths, you can prevent or lessen the damage of disease, stress and disorder. Mental health issues are a normal part of human life.  By providing individualized, evidence-based treatment my patients reported emotional and behavioral improvements, including decreased anxiety, decreased insomnia, increased resilience, increased compassion, enhanced focus, increase of better mood and well-being. Mental health recovery is a personal journey of gaining increasing meaningful life despite the presence of mental illnesses.

During your therapy sessions, you’ll have a supportive environment where you can feel comfortable sharing your personal story. It’s important that you feel heard, seen and understood during these sessions. Together, we will build on your individual strengths to create small steps you can take today to start feeling better. You should feel accepted right where you are in life, but also feel challenged to reach your desired goals for the future.

I welcome hearing from you to support your path toward feeling great.
