Dr. Stephanie and Abby talk about challenging and complex ND marriages and aspects such as rigidity and need for sameness that can make the NT family members feel trapped or controlled in a ND marriage or family.

About today's Guest: "Abby"
Abby has two decades of personal and professional experience with neurodiverse marriage, and autism-impacted family dynamics. She is the mother of three multiple neurodivergent children, and formerly married to an autistic spouse. Drawing from her extensive work with other couples, along with her own lived history, Abby writes about the complexities of neurodiverse marriage at www.asdmarriage.com. Her intent is to provide an unfiltered voice to the anecdotal realities shared by many neurotypical spouses, specifically among those who navigate exceptionally challenging neurodiverse marriages. Abby works in private practice as a relationship coach for neurodiverse couples, parents, and families.


From the Guest's Website:
Because I am respectful of my children and former husband’s privacy, I do not identify my name on this website. In addition to over two decades spent in the field of autism, I very much attribute my family’s unique neurology, gifts, vulnerabilities and challenges as an irreplaceable element of why I am able to offer effective help and coping to others. Many fundamental challenges of neurodiverse marriage and family life can simply not be gleaned through direct client service, nor in a textbook, and certainly not (at this juncture) in a graduate school classroom. Thanks for your respect and understanding for my loved ones.
