Our Therapist


Abigail Carter Fields

Abigail is a licensed mental health counselor for the state of Florida. She is a longtime resident of Fernandina Beach. She graduated from FBHS in 1995 and went on to study Christian Social Ministries at Palm Beach Atlantic University. Before going away to graduate school, she spent time working for several nonprofits in the community, mainly focusing on counseling teens. She moved to Lexington, KY in 2007 to attend Asbury Theological Seminary where she graduated with her Masters in Counseling. After graduation, she spent time as the Director of Outreach Services at the Lexington Rescue Mission working with people struggling with poverty. It was at the Rescue Mission that she realized the deep need people have for loving relationships and seeing that one of the greatest sorrows that people carry is the deep sense of loneliness. And her desire to help others heal in community began to grow. She came back to Fernandina in late 2014 and worked for Florida Psychological Associates as a therapist for two years. She has a deep love for helping others to live fully embracing their joy and struggle together in the journey of life.  She has experience working with individuals dealing with loss, trauma, depression, anxiety, addictions and chronic mental health concerns. She would love to meet with you and walk on the journey towards healing and hope. 

How Much Will It Cost?


We offer counseling at no cost. However, if you would like to give a donation, you are welcome to do so! We seek to be a safe space that provides support for hope and healing to meet you where you are - sometimes that means you can’t afford counseling and sometimes you can. When you can give a donation, it will go right back into the services at The Common Space to provide opportunity for others.
