About Edna Abney, LAMFT, RYT

Edna Abney, LAMFT, RYT is a therapist specializing in individual, couples and family therapy, using holistic approaches to help clients tap into their existing inner strengths.

My Approach

My passion is helping clients to find balance and emotional wellness in the midst of life’s challenges and transitions.  In session I aim to help clients create meaning of their experiences and become more aware in their lives, while achieving a deeper sense of peace and mindfulness. Rather than focusing on the negatives, we explore solutions and healthy coping techniques which highlight the strengths and wisdom we inherently possess.

My Philosophy

My philosophy is that we all hold the keys to our own happiness, yet sometimes it may be difficult to identify our needs. I invite clients who are experiencing chaotic transition, difficulty navigating relationships, and those who seek interpersonal healing, to join me in exploring fresh perspectives and new narratives around the experiences of the past. I aim to provide an open, safe, and nonjudgmental environment where clients can feel unfiltered and uninhibited. I desire to meet clients where they are with compassion and curiosity.

Who are my clients?

My clients often present with concerns pertaining to:

– Generational relationship issues and navigating patterns of communication
– Difficulty finding peace, balance, emotional wellness in daily life
– Couples who are experiencing challenges, causing communication failure and/or detachment
– High stress environments resulting in symptoms/triggers of anxiety/stress
– Difficulty navigating significant life transition
