About Me

I'm so glad you found my page. Here's a little bit about me. I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology with minors in Biology and Child Development from Florida State University in 2015. In 2017, I graduated from George Washington University with a master's in School Counseling and in 2020 I earned a Ph.D. in Counselor Education and Supervision from Virginia Commonwealth University. I am a Board Certified Counselor, Certified Career Counselor, Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, and Licensed Professional Counselor passionate about serving minority adolescents and young adults in order to promote growth, mental wellness, and career engagement. My professional counseling experiences include working with adolescents and adults in school, community, private practice, university career services, and federal agencies. In addition, I am a counselor educator. I teach the next generation of counselors and actively engage in research. My research agenda centers on improving the career development and mental health of historically underrepresented students. Through research, I aim to develop interventions that support the retention of underrepresented students pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and healthcare (STEM-H). Lastly, I often speak at community events and professional counseling conferences on topics related to multiculturalism, career development, stress, trauma, resilience, STEM-H education, and more. 

Hey there! I'm Dr. Autumn L. Cabell, LPC, NCC, CCC, CCTP...

My Approach

As a counselor,

I am passionate about helping individuals harness their strengths and heal from past traumas. I have an area of expertise in depression; anxiety; trauma; suicidal ideation; relationship and career-related concerns. I am committed to serving diverse populations of clients and emphasize cultural humility in our work together. 

I collaborate with clients to set goals and develop actionable steps. My ultimate mission is to help clients thrive in their daily lives and develop an overall sense of wellness. I utilize Cognitive Behavioral approaches as well as other goal-oriented, strength-based, and trauma-informed modalities to assist clients with a variety of concerns. 

In my experience, we are all uniquely equipped with our own strengths, talents, and abilities. Sometimes, we may need a bit of help harnessing these qualities to make meaningful change in our lives. I am here to help you foster your strengths and learn new strategies to heal and live a more fulfilled life.
