“Abby Medcalf is the first person I think of when I am looking to refer a client with multiple concerns and difficulties in connecting with themselves and others. Abby’s emotional availability and her obvious love of people is only part of the reason she is one of the most sought-after speakers/presenters/consultants in the SF Bay Area and across the country.”

Terri Compaglia

Steven Levine

“Abby has an inspiring way of presenting so our participants say they’ve not only learned a great deal, but are excited to put that learning into action. She’s able to synthesize information from multiple sources, and makes it easy to digest. I wish we could have her as our keynote every year.”

Barbara Madsen

Parent Education Coordinator

“Dr. Medcalf, I loved your presentation on Drugs and Alcohol and the Teen Brain last evening! Besides being chock-full of useful info, it reminded me to remain in control as a parent by looking beyond my kids’ questions.”

Virginia B.

Workshop Participant, Austin, TX


“I go to so many parent education workshops and I feel like I got more in two hours with you than in all of the rest of them combined. Thanks so much Dr. Medcalf – you’ve given me great information, practical tips and, most importantly, hope for the future.”

David G.

Workshop Participant, Sante Fe, NM


“I just had to write to thank you for the great presentation the other night. It was the best money I’ve ever spent and I’m actually excited about my marriage again and ready to do what it takes to make all my relationships a success… I left your presentation already feeling more confident and happier.”

Frederica J.

Workshop Participant, NY, NY


“I must say, your presentation was the best. You had so much information that I found I had to keep closing my mouth because I was so dumbstruck. I could have listened to you for as long as you could keep going. You need to be on everyone’s top presentation list. I must get your book. Make sure to post when you are having a book signing. Thank you so much for coming and sharing your wisdom. Hope to see you in the future.”
