RMSabia ,

So grateful

Wendy’s podcast and book have helped me immensely in dealing with my anxiety. She is very relatable and knowledgeable. Thank you!

Cathy

Thank you so much! You are a big help!

Kszos ,

Simple and Effective Strategies!

I’m so glad I found this podcast! Wendy has the kind of vibe I love for personal growth work — she feels like the kind of person I’d meet at a retreat or somewhere and would feel safe enough to be vulnerable with almost immediately. There’s just something about her! Her voice is very comforting, but she’s also quite practical. These podcasts are short (but still packed with legitimately helpful advice) and easy to follow (but not “dumbed down”). I so hope she continues to do more! Maybe answer listener/client questions?? Thanks so much! 5 stars!
