I did not have a good experience with Abby PerLee for couples counseling. I felt that she did not hold my ex-partner accountable for his actions/choices in our relationship. I noticed that Abby has issues with women. Everything I did was scrutinized but my ex got away with so much. Much of my ex’s behavior towards me was abusive, but Abby did not recognize this. The counselor we saw after Abby immediately recognized this abusive behavior.
To be fair, the counselor that we saw after Abby made stated that he had some very deep psychological issues, was a compulsive liar, and an expert manipulator. This was a difficult situation and as an intern she was not prepared to handle this. I feel that Abby should have said that she was not equipped to handle a complicated case like ours at that particular moment in her career. However, she didn’t and in the end it just wasted a great deal of time and money
