Abbie Satterfield Bio

Professional Counselor II

Personal Statement:
As a former student, I am so proud to be back at Texas A&M. I have over twenty years of experience as a Licensed Professional Counselor, and I am passionate about working with my clients to help them achieve their counseling goals. My approach to counseling is down to earth, collaborative and solution oriented. I used whatever approaches would be most helpful for each individual, whether that is teaching skills, improving communication, deepening self-awareness, fostering a positive sense of self and others, and helping students feel empowered in their ability to meet life’s challenges. Currently, I am working in the College of Veterinary Medicine, serving DVM students, residents, and interns. I truly enjoy working with this gifted group of students and healers. When not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family and pets, cooking, watching bad reality tv, laughing, and generally enjoying life.
