Abby Dunnigan, LMSW

Practicing Since: 2012

Abby works to cultivate an atmosphere and relationship that is fundamentally supportive and nonjudgmental. Using various modalities of treatment, her goal is to help clients increase self-awareness, identify and truly understand their motivations, utilize their strengths, and develop safer coping strategies.

As both a consumer and provider of mental health services, Abby truly believes that the best therapeutic relationships allow clients to see and hear themselves more clearly; all behavior comes from somewhere, and understanding why we do what we do is powerful.

Before becoming a licensed social worker, Abby worked in public health for 13 years and has been certified in HIV and Opiate overdose prevention. She has a special affinity for those impacted by substance abuse.

Abby is married and has 2 children. She is an animal lover and enjoys cooking, reading, yoga, and spending time outdoors.

Abby is licensed in the state of Maryland (#19097) and is under the clinical supervision of Georgina Irondi, LCSW-C (MD #20025)
