Abigail Atkins, MDiv, EdD, BCC
Hi, my name is Dr. Abigail Atkins and I am an Arizona State Licensed Psychologist (#3643). I specialize in counseling children and have over 40 years of experience working in the schools and in private practice.
I received my Doctorate of Education (EdD) in Educational Psychology and Counseling from the University of San Francisco, and my Master of Divinity (MDiv) degree from Claremont School of Theology. I am also an ordained minister, a Board Certified Chaplain (BCC), and a Fellow with the American Association of Pastoral Counselors.
I use play therapy in my approach. I enjoy working with children and parents and specialize in helping with issues around behavior, learning, emotions, and spirituality.
I specialize in working with children between the ages of 3 to 14. I use play therapy to improve their ability to cope. We have a designated play room which includes a sand tray as well as many games. I end my sessions with a treat for the children when they have cleaned up the material from our session together.
