My name is Ann Abbrecht and I am a licensed professional counselor in the Uptown area of New Orleans.
I graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelor’s degree in History and English in 1971. After teaching for many years in New Orleans, my passion for helping others led me to the Master’s of Science in Counseling program at Loyola University New Orleans and graduated in 2009. While attending Loyola, I was a member of Chi Sigma Iota: the Counseling Academic and Professional Honor Society International. During my studies, I received the Humanitarian Award from the Alpha Chi Chapter of Chi Sig and was also recognized as an outstanding graduate student receiving the Regina Matthews Oehmig Award for Excellence in Counseling.
Currently in private practice in the Uptown area, I provide therapeutic services to individuals with various issues. I have a particular focus in working with those with depression and anxiety. I also have extensive experience in working with those who are experiencing grief. Lastly, I work with those who are working through gender identity and its complexities.
