-Words by A.
I met Abby six years ago and she taught me how to communicate in relationships, how to pick the right partner, she taught me so many life tools and how to deal with my sobriety, anxiety and depression. She taught me how to be the best me. She is absolutely the best, straightforward, doesn’t sugarcoat things and knows a lot of little tricks and tools that are very helpful in day-to-day life.
Abby’s advice is spot on. It’s easy to understand and implement. Best of all, it is effective. Thanks, Dr. Abby!
