Contract Therapist

Abby Sorrow is a Child and Teen Contract Therapist at Refuge and a former Master’s Level Intern studying Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Marshall University. Prior to her internship at The Refuge Center, she worked with therapeutic foster care agencies to provide intensive in-home case management for children, adolescents, and families.

Within her practice, Abby’s goal is to create a safe place for people to step into where they feel seen, heard, and valued. Abby believes that all people should have the opportunity to experience redemption and wholeness in their lives, as well as engage in meaningful relationships with others.  Abby’s approach in counseling is to care for the whole person – mind, body, and soul. Using existential, cognitive-behavioral, and other integrative techniques, Abby provides a therapeutic space for individuals to safely process through trauma, life transitions, and life stressors. Abby favors a collaborative approach to counseling that empowers people to find their voice and actively participate in their healing process.
