About Us

Hey, it's Abby. We're all in relationships of some sort. From our spouses/partners, to our kids, to our coworkers...and beyond. You already know when your relationships aren't up to snuff, life gets a bit more challenging. What do we do when our relationships are causing more heartache than joy? More frustration that peace? Identifying what's wrong (or even right!) isn't always so simple. Join me as I explore relationships from every loving, frustrating, and complicated angle -- enabling and empowering you to make the tweaks, changes, and decisions you need on your quest for your best and healthiest relationships!

Women: Can't We Just Be Old Already?

Join Psychotherapist Abby Rodman as she puts in her two-cents on what it means to be (horrors!) an aging woman in our culture -- and what we really should be focusing on instead.

But the validation never comes. Join Psychotherapist and best-selling author, Abby Rodman, as she discusses gaslighting -- and its very real and damaging impact on relationships.
