Abby Sagasser, MA, MFT

Abby Sagasser provides excellent care for individuals, couples, and families. Her work with clients covers the lifespan – from helping parents with young children to working with seniors making decisions as they age. Common themes in Abby’s work include resolving relationship difficulties; easing communication struggles; moving beyond substance abuse; and transforming emotional distress such as anxiety or depression, grief, and loss.

In her work with Children and Adolescents, Abby provides a collaborative diagnostic and treatment approach, always taking into account the perspective of parents. Her work with couples starts with a compassionate understanding of the couple’s relational strengths, not just their struggles. She takes the time to hear the pain of each partner prior to engaging in solutions.

Ultimately, Abby will move her clients from dwelling on the past to working together to create a positive future. For couples that come to therapy, uncertain of what they want for the relationship, Abby is adept at engaging them in a process of discerning and exploring different paths for working on the relationship or ending it in the best possible way.

In addition to her Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy, Abby holds a certificate of advanced studies in Child Therapy from Syracuse University where she was trained to understand principles of child development, human sexuality, gender development and family development processes, especially within the context of trauma.

Abby charges $200 per hour and only offers her services via telehealth. She is currently practicing under the supervision of Melanie McClellan, IMFT-S as she works toward her independent license in Marriage and Family Therapy.

Abby is currently not taking any new clients
