Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
Worry? Anxiety? I can help! Learn effective tools to manage all stress and anxiety issues. I'm an expert in treating worry and panic with decades of experience in treating OCD, Phobias, Social Anxiety, and Depression.
Dr. Jennifer L. Abel is a clinical psychologist, international speaker, and author with over 25 years of specializing in treating anxiety. She utilizes an integrative approach employing primarily cognitive-behavioral treatment (CBT), while integrating mindfulness, schema therapy, experiential therapies, and uses many elements of DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) and ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy). Dr. Jen's expertise is primarily in the treatment of worry and generalized anxiety disorder (GAD). She is also very adept and experienced in treating panic attacks, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), work stress, performance anxiety, phobias, depression and insomnia. Dr. Jen has a special interest in performance anxiety among athletes, musicians, and other performance arts. Above all, her approach is pragmatic.
After retiring for over three years to focus on a speaking career, she decided to open a small practice in the spring of 2022. Because she will see no more than 10 people per week, she can provide better focus on you than someone seeing 20-40 people/week. While she does primarily teletherapy, she can see you in person on alternate Friday mornings.
While results vary, most people who see Dr. Jen get rapid relief and usually do not need long-term therapy. This is because she provides easy to apply effective strategies that do not require a great deal of time out of your busy schedule.
