Have you ever had to set a difficult boundary with your own parents or in-laws?
Today’s guest, Abbey Williams, is a behavioral health therapist and the heart behind You, The Mother. She’s the author of “An ABC of Families” and mother of 4.
In this episode, we discuss Abbey’s own journey in making the self-honoring decision to limit contact with her mother in order to protect her wellbeing.

Things you’ll learn in this episode:
- The journey of finding yourself again in motherhood
- How to communicate boundaries with extended family
- The important work of a cycle breaker

To connect with Abbey, head to:
“I believe there’s immense power in our messy moments. We’re not just breaking cycles and healing our inner child; we’re also demonstrating how to make mistakes, take responsibility, show empathy, and apologize when we’re wrong. By doing so, we’re shaping a generation unafraid of their imperfections.” – Abbey Williams
