Abigail Csengery, LPC-Associate.
Supervised by Tritia Finley, Ph.D., LPC-S, NCC
Hello there! I’m Abigail Csengery, thrilled to be a part of the dynamic Elite Performance Counseling team. My story begins in Houston, Texas, where, as a young girl, I found myself enchanted by the world of tennis. This passion wasn’t just a hobby; it shaped my early years, taking me to the top 20 in Texas and the top 150 nationally. Imagine a journey filled with the echo of tennis balls and the thrill of victory!
My adventure continued at St. Mary’s University in San Antonio, where I embraced the dual identity of a Psychology student and NCAA Division II tennis player. This period of my life was like a masterclass in balancing act – acing psychology theories by day and perfecting backhands by night.
However, it wasn’t all smooth sailing. The world of competitive sports, as exhilarating as it is, brought with it its own set of challenges. I faced the formidable opponents of performance anxiety and burnout, not on the court but within. This was a turning point for me. Therapy, often overlooked in the sports world, became my sanctuary. It taught me invaluable lessons in mental resilience, transforming my approach to tennis and life.
Fast forward through an enriching journey of self-discovery, I earned my Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. My role as a tennis coach at St. Mary’s allowed me to share these insights, bridging the gap between mental wellness and athletic performance.
Today, as a Licensed Professional Counselor-Associate under the supervision of Tritia M. Finley, Ph.D., LPC-S, NCC, I stand ready to share my insights with you. Whether you’re an athlete grappling with the pressures of performance, a high achiever striving for balance, or anyone in between, I’m here to help you navigate these challenges. My mission is to empower you, to enhance your mental game, and to witness your transformation into the best version of yourself.
Together, we can redefine what it means to be an athlete or high performer in terms of mental health. Let’s embark on a journey to elevate your mental game to Elite levels!

EPC's Reframing Process
By listening to each client's story, we create connections and validate their experiences. We help people learn how they experience the world through our five senses by showing them different lenses (yellow, blue, red) in order to see different opportunities, allowing them to feel confident and motivated to move.
Wow Tritia! I am just speechless! What you did yesterday was the most healing and powerful session I could ever imagine. I literally didn’t see that coming or think something like that was deep inside of me. You literally cut through the bullshit and honed in on it like a Navy Seal! I felt “ok” before and knew something was hiding down there but I just couldn’t find it and it was this darkness that I couldn’t shake off. It was POWERFUL!
