Abbe Horsburgh is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with a private practice in Southampton, Long Island. She specializes in working with adults who are struggling with becoming independent, making relationships of all kinds work, pursuing careers, and developing a sense of self that will take them forward in life with confidence. Abbe helps them find the tools to cope with problems, to stop engaging in dysfunctional or self-defeating behaviors, and set goals.
Abbe also works with many parents, helping them in the complicated and challenging task of raising their children. I’m “only as happy as my unhappiest child” is an expression that many of us have heard, and it just seems to be true. She holds support groups for single parents of both children and teens. She also helps parents build strong and healthy connections with their adult children.
Abbe is originally from New York City, where she earned her Master’s Degree in Psychological Counseling from Teachers College, Columbia University, and then spent three years at the Ackerman Institute for the Family. She uses a combination CBT, psychodynamic, family systems, and person-centered therapy. She went through Mount Sinai’s SAVI program, advocating for survivors of rape and intimate partner violence to be supported and treated with respect. Abbe has treated clients from a wide range of cultures, races, genders, sexual orientations, and socio-economic statuses.
