Dr. Conway

Welcome to Rooted in Grace Psychological Services. I'm Dr. Abrielle (Abby) Conway and I'm so glad you're here! Two of the most important components of choosing a therapist include 1). determining if you can work well with the therapist and 2) confirming their education and experience are in line with your reason for seeking treatment. This page will share a bit about my training background and professional interests in order to provide you with information to make an educated decision on whether to pursue treatment with me.


I am a licensed psychologist with extensive knowledge and experience in helping clients cope with life stressors, grief, anxiety, depression, and traumatic experiences.  In recent years, I’ve also developed an interest in women’s issues, reproductive health, infertility, birth trauma, postpartum concerns, respectful parenting, and posttraumatic growth.


As a psychologist, I am committed to providing holistic care, considering how each component of health (spiritual, biological, psychological, and social) is vital to your overall well-being. In my work, I utilize a variety of research-based approaches, depending upon your needs and preferences. In addition to providing therapy for individuals, couples, and groups, I have served as an adjunct faculty member and guest speaker. I also enjoy providing educational workshops and professional consultation for a variety of community organizations.

Sometimes, we all need someone to walk with us during difficult times: to listen without judgment, to observe, to support, and to offer a fresh perspective. Of all the things I love about this work, I most value being a trusted confidante and a safe place for people who are struggling to find or remember themselves. I love seeing people take off their proverbial masks, relax their shoulders, and breathe in the confidence to be themselves, to make mistakes, and to move on. I see myself as a sojourner along the path of your journey toward self-discovery, healing, and growth.

Opening up about perceived weaknesses can leave us feeling vulnerable. As a result, we tend to isolate when we don’t feel well. However, research has shown that having strong social support can tremendously improve our ability to overcome obstacles. Making the decision to pursue therapy is one step in the right direction.


My general approach is to work cooperatively with clients. While I have knowledge, skills, and abilities in psychological concepts, I truly believe that you are the expert of your own life: you know your history, your temperament, and what has/hasn't worked for you in the past. Together, we can work together to set goals which are helpful for you and begin your journey toward healing and wholeness. I would be honored to walk alongside you.
