The Freedom to grow, to learn, express and...
Intimacy to me means a deep connection to Self, a willingness to stay open in uncertainty, and the ability to share that Self with others by being present in and appreciative of the company of another.
After years of living in New York City, dating regularly trying to find an amazing physical connection and a deeply supportive emotional connection with a man and not feeling fulfilled, I finally realized I had to be missing something. I was only experiencing half of what I wanted with each man I met, but the only thing those men had in common was me. So, I let go of that path to 'get a guy' and found myself exploring my relationship with myself - understanding how I approach relationships, where I learned about love, where I've 'gone wrong' (I say that tongue-in-cheek because now I believe there is no 'wrong'), and ultimately learning to deeply appreciate myself. I've cultivated a relationship with my emotions and my body that is satisfying and supportive. I haven't found that 'man of my dreams' yet, but every man that comes into my life - through friendship, dating, business, you name it - is incredible and I feel like I get what I need from every relationship I am in. I'm able to be more present with everyone in my life - friends, family, colleagues, and I am proud of the direction my life is taking. I embrace the ups and downs that naturally arise relating in the everyday world and experience more ease in showing up as my whole self. I no longer judge my worth by external factors and am incredibly grateful my work in the world helps others experience the same grace.

"You know that feeling of pure joy and giddiness that children have? Where you suspend your judgments and self-doubts to feel like the world is wonderful and magical? I had gotten to the point where those moments for me happened maybe a few times a year. I felt so weighed down by pressures of work, money, and life in general. After Abby led me through an exercise that connected me to what my true passion is - dance - I realized that no matter how long it had been (almost 20 years) I could start again. Abby helped me see that I can do simple, small practices that bring that joy and zest for life back to me. Since embracing my passion, I am more aligned in my work; feel excited to move to a city I've always dreamed of living in, and dancing regularly which deepens my connection to my body. It is my happy place, and I wouldn't have had the courage to express it without her!" ~Rachael L. (Toronto, Canada)
"I came to Abby with the intention of having a more open, honest conversation with my partner where our emotions and egos could be kept in check by a qualified third person. My partner and I were having trouble authentically communicating how we feel with clarity and value for the other person. Through our work with Abby, we were able to see the link between the anger, resentment, frustration and sadness we felt in the present moment and past emotional beliefs we held about ourselves. We began to see our similarities in what we desired rather than focus on our misunderstanding.
Beyond the work benefiting that one relationship, I have been able to find more kindness and compassion for myself. I was able to uplevel my capacity for love and ultimately understand my ego and emotions in a whole new way. Abby created a safe space where I felt free to feel whatever came up without fear of hurting myself or my partner. Our work together helped create a sense of clarity amidst a foggy storm. I would strongly recommend working with Abby, you will not regret it!" ~Steve B. (Buffalo, NY)
"Abby is a powerful coach. Her intuition to feel into your situation helps uniquely identify what's underneath your words and often time what you're too afraid to express. She provides guidance that gets to the heart of what you need, beyond what you expect. Abby creates a safe space and is a breath of fresh air while traveling with you down any path you need. She really can provide you with clarity and action to transform your life." ~Kavita P. (NYC) of KavitaJPatel.com
"I was hesitant to try coaching because I was worried it would be one more thing on my list of over-committments, but the few hours a month I've invested in meeting with Abby have actually helped me to create MORE time for myself. Through our work I've recognized that giving attention to one area in my life impacts every arena of my life. I always feel so much more positive and centered after our meetings and come away with ideas I can apply in any situation I find myself in; the things Abby has helped me with in my personal life translate to the working world and vice versa. Thank you for helping me to see these connections!" ~Chrissy (Buffalo, NY)
My session with Abby encouraged me to further explore and embrace my emotional development and know that it is ok to feel what I am feeling - all feelings are ok. I felt supported, welcomed, and able to connect in a way that allowed me to sit in sometimes uncomfortable moments. Our work together allowed me to become aware of established routines and thought patterns that were old habits and shift them to facilitate awakening in ways that will help me move forward towards what I want. I am very grateful for the opportunity to work with Abby! ~ Paul S. (London, England)
"Abby has a unique way of thinking outside the box. Anytime I feel stuck - like there is no way out or am only seeing one side - she has the ability to look at the situation from multiple dimensions and encourage me to find a solution that feels good. I was in a tough point in my long-term relationship and she helped me bring back my curiosity. I learned that two people are still capable of exploring new parts of each other no matter how many years we've spent together. Even more importantly, she reminded me that I need to stay curious about myself." ~Kahley C. (Buffalo, NY)
