Abby Sommerfeld

Coach, teacher, writer, mother.

As a family life coach, I support all family members in all aspects of family life. I work with individuals (both children and parents) as well as groups (couples, parent/child, siblings, whole families) to explore and optimize family systems (routines, rhythms, boundaries) and family dynamics (communication, conflict, resolution) in order to align their family life with what matters most (core values, expectations, goals).

My practice encompasses all constellations and compositions of families in all the seasons of family life.


Coaching with Abby is like being with your oldest friend, your biggest fan, and your toughest teacher.
