My name is Wendy.
And I think I know something about you. :)
You’re a healer, a teacher or a therapist, a selfless care giver who brings good to the clients your practice serves.
You're good at what you do, and although you rarely admit it even to yourself, you know they adore you.
You love your clients. A lot.
And they don't know it, but you spent a fortune to get to this point.
You may have gone to graduate school and spent thousands of clinical hours getting the supervision you need for licensure.
You may have spent thousands of dollars to get high-level training and special certification to do the work you are called to do.
Or you may just have a natural gift and a set of skills that you have practiced, fine-tuned and worked so, so hard to perfect - all on your own.
It hasn't been easy.
But then, you were never looking for easy. You were looking to make a difference.
And now, you’re in private practice, but oh-my-lord it’s complicated. Daunting even.
Oh - you’ve done all the right things: set up a website, posted on social media, asked your colleagues for referrals. And you’ve got clients! Maybe you have as many as you want. Maybe you don’t quite (yet).
But it turns out that getting clients isn’t really the hard part.
The hard part is the money.
You love this work - and like being your own boss - but something’s wrong. You work as many hours as you possibly can, see as many clients as you can squeeze in...but the money just isn’t there.
Even though you barely get by, you hate thinking about money. You hate talking about money. You hate worrying about money. You were never in it for the money.
But now you're realizing that money matters too.
I know. Ugh.
Been there. Done that. Got the t-shirt.
(Click here to read my own story.)
I’m an LCSW - a Licensed Clinical Social Worker - who’s been in private practice for a long time. And in the beginning, like you, I too hated thinking about money, so I did everything wrong (at first).
Gave away too much. Charged too little. Felt guilty when someone paid me. Resented them when they didn’t.
It was nuts.
But I learned from those mistakes, and things got better. Over time, I built a six-figure business that served me as well as it served my clients.
Today, I can help you do that too.
If you’re tired of working so hard for so little, tired of trying to figure this out on your own, let me help.
Let's start with a Quick Start Consult and see what short term strategies could move you in the right direction quickly.
I want you to earn the kind of income you deserve, so you can do the kind of good you were meant to do.
Let’s fix this, shall we?
"People are coming out of the woodwork for my next workshop, even though I’ve raised my rates."
BIG WEEK! I’ve been focused, and on track, and I’ve accomplished a lot! My online scheduling system is up and rolling. And people are coming out of the woodwork for my next workshop, even though I’ve raised my rates. I’ve added so much value that the workshop is FULL. So I wrote the letter, did the flyer, saw the results! It’s been a great week. This stuff really works!

"I've realized how I held myself back and no longer wonder who am I to make a BIG contribution to my profession."
When Wendy challenged me to really step into this and own what I've created, I resisted at first. Boy has that changed! Today, I've clearly made the distinction between my own leading edge work and that of my mentors. I've realized how I held myself back and no longer wonder 'Who am I to make a BIG contribution to my profession?' Today, I know that this model eases suffering in a powerful way, I am confident in my ability to teach it and I am excited about sharing it with my colleagues.

"There were times when I thought this isn't really what I need or want but it turned out it was exactly what I needed and didn't realize it."
This has been a powerful journey, greater and deeper than what I would have imagined 12 months ago. There were times when I thought this isn't really what I need or want.... but it turned out it was exactly what I needed and didn't realize it. This was transformative. I feel as though I've stepped in greater ways to serve my clients. I'm not finished yet. In some ways I feel as though I'm just getting started.

"I am growing my business in a smart way!!!"
I attended your workshop in Nashville last year and took advantage of the one-hour phone call with you. One of the things you recommended to me, was growing my business in regards to my building, so I have attached a photo that I used to “congratulate myself this week” (as your last video suggested). Construction started this morning! I have someone signing a 3-year lease for it. I am growing my business in a smart way!!! I am grateful for my experience with you. It spurred me on to make some changes! So thank you!
I wanted to share this with you because I want you to see how you inspire others!

"I made more progress than I expected to during a very busy time in my family life."
I took Wendy's session at the NASW-NC Annual Conference and FELL IN LOVE with her COURAGE 2 CONFIDENCE process. I jumped at the chance to be a part of her inaugural C2C class, and she did not disappoint! There was just the right amount of opening meditation, learning, exercises, sharing and homework. I made more progress than I expected to during a very busy time in my family life. I have the tools now and the experience of walking through each step in the class. I highly recommend both Wendy and this class!
