My Ideal Client

Abe's clients are usually battling with a relationship issue(s) (even with their young child) and are hurt, frustrated, ashamed and have tried things, to overcome this or figure it out. They usually need a person to help with this. His role is to be a skilled professional and fellow traveller in supporting you to understand your experiences, organize your thoughts and feelings and move towards healthy expression and meaningful change, thus improving your relationships and view of yourself.

My Background and Approach

Abe is a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Mental Health Counselor. He has specialized training with counseling couples/marital and in supporting to build the bonds of attachment in parent-child relationships. Abe counsels parents of young children in the areas of supporting optimal development through attuned, self-aware parenting and is particularly informed by the developmental science of attachment (this is not the same as attachment parenting). Abe also treats individuals with anxiety, depression, stress, trauma (in 0-5's) and developmental/childhood wounds. Abe is also an approved supervisor with the Oregon board. Abe primarily draws from developmental and Attachment research, Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) and Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP). Abe's focus is on providing a therapeutic space where clients are supported to carefully process and transform internal distress, develop self-awareness and improve their relationships, performance and life satisfaction.

My Approach to Helping

It requires great vulnerability and courage to take the first step towards making real changes in your life. It's exciting but daunting to develop awareness of oneself and begin changing patterns in your mind, emotions, relationships and behaviors. Abe will be respectful, sensitive and skilful with your needs and he would love to hear from you.

Techniques I Use


  • Emotionally Focused External link

    This therapeutic approach is based on the notion that emotions act as our internal compass, guiding our actions, informing our desires, and helping us to grow and develop healthy attachments. The focus of therapy is on the regulation of emotions in order to facilitate behavioral change, and EFT helps people gain awareness of and experience their emotions safely within a therapy session.

  • Attachment Theory External link

    An attachment-based approach to therapy looks at the connection between an infant's early attachment experiences with primary caregivers, usually with parents, and the infant's ability to develop normally and ultimately form healthy emotional and physical relationships as an adult.

Issues I Treat


  • Relationship / Marriage Issues External link

    Abe uses Emotion-Focused Therapy for couples (EFT-C). Couples are helped to clarify their emotional reactions to each other, become more aware of their real needs, and understand how their emotional vulnerabilities are catalysts for negative cycles of conflict. Abe will guide you into creating new, positive cycles of interaction.

  • Postpartum External link

    I provide evidenced based support for parents who are experiencing difficulty in adjusting to parenthood or in bonding with their child. Much of the time, bonding or attachment issues are experienced as behavioural problems in the child or inadequacies in the parent. My approach is to help slow down the parent and create space for them to reflect on themselves and have more understanding of the ways in which they can change or improve their experience of parenthood and their child.

  • Parenting External link

    I provide specific help for infants and toddlers who have been impacted by trauma or toxic stress or developmental challenges. If you are needing support in promoting your child’s optimal development or with learning to become a tuned in and emotionally available parent, I can help.
