Abigail Bautista, MEd, Psy.D. Candidate
Hola! Are you struggling to express your thoughts, feelings, or emotions? Do you find it difficult to motivate yourself? You may feel like it is all your fault, afraid you are mis-understood, or feel like you are hopeless. You might even be swinging back and forth between feeling you are not good enough and self-blame. Furthermore, you may begin to find it difficult to connect with yourself.
It is possible to mend your pain and find inner peace with yourself.
I am dedicated to helping people find their sense of worth and belonging, as individuals and with those around them. As a first-generation Latina from the south side of Chicago, I have seen the difficulties and challenges that can occur when feeling unwanted and not good enough. Whether it is talking about yourself, a relationship, challenges, or struggles, I will walk the journey with you.
Let’s explore now! Make an appointment here.
I am a second-year doctoral student in the PsyD Program in Clinical Psychology at Adler University. Having worked in student affairs, residence life, student interactions, and parent interactions, I have experienced many scenarios including students facing depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, substance abuse, and sexual assault. During these situations, I have been able to listen to the students, speak to them about their emotions and feelings, and depending on the situation assist with action plans or referring to counseling services. Additionally, I have worked with parents and explored the impact of biculturalism within a family. I am bilingual and provide counseling in English and Spanish.
