Introduction: My service stands out because I am not a traditional counselor or therapist. I take an approach of a teacher and coach. In our sessions, we do not stay focused on the past. Certainly, I need to hear the story of how your relationship got to where it is today, but once I fully understand your story, we move into repair mode. If there has been a breach of trust, I walk you through the steps you must take in order to repair the relationship. If you are experiencing difficultly communicating, I teach you productive ways to communicate that leads to both people feeling understood. If you are arguing and can't find a way to resolve your conflicts, I will teach you a proven method that will help you work though those conflicts quickly and keep you focused on fixing the real issue without spinning into a larger problem. Most of my clients see an immediate improvement in their relationship after the first session. This is because of my unique approach to scheduling appointments. Most marriage counselors schedule and hour for your session and once that hour is over, you are expected to leave. I don't think that approach is helpful because it usually takes an hour for a couple to fully explain the issues they're experiencing. I think it would do more damage to their relationship to allow them to recall the painful emotions and then cut them off because an hour has passed. My approach is different because it is my goal to end our sessions with my clients in better shape than when we started. I schedule appointments that allow for enough time for you to tell me the past history AND enough time to work through SOLUTIONS to the problems. I love to watch people's eyes light up when they truly discover something they didn't know about themselves and realize that they have the power to change what isn't working in their relationships.

Eric B.

Marriage and Relationship Counseling

I was married for 28 years then I got divorced in April of 2020. And then I met the most beautiful woman in the world inside and out. But then we both realized I carried a lot of garbage from my previous marriage into our relationship. I must be honest at first I thought I could fix myself without premarital counseling. But little did I know I needed a lot of help! We're doing video conferencing but it just seems like she's here with us in person. Wendy has made this premarital counseling very easy and understandable. The lessons I learned from Wendy I will take and use in my new marriage forever. 🗣️ Thank God for Wendy! Thank you Wendy! 😁👍🏾✌🏾

Marriage and Relationship Counseling

This is by far the best experience for helping a marriage by far! My husband and I are in a place where we have been contemplating a split. We had our session with Wendy and both my husband and I walked away feeling like "We can do this"! My husband has said no to marriage counseling for years! Because he felt like it was going to be an attack the husband time. This is so not the case! Wendy actually took an approach that does Not make you feel defensive or unsafe. She taught us both so much! We ended up going for 2 hours, my husband couldn't believe how fast the time went! We have scheduled another appointment and we are looking forward to it! JLB

Marriage and Relationship Counseling

My husband and I have have had two sessions with Wendy and overall they have been amazing. She is very professional and has great communication. Wendy is amazing in teaching tricks on how to communicate with one another and see situations from different views. After one session, we had notice improvement in our challenges we were facing. My husband and I both look forward to meeting with Wendy again because we always learn something new and tips for a happy marriage.

Marriage and Relationship Counseling

Where should I start! Wendy is the answer to the age old problem about men and women being from different planets. She helped us in two sessions communicate better than we ever had and now I know how to support my fiancé and speak with her about important issues. In the past, these issues would for sure have been a fight. She is knowledgeable, keen insight, and authentic. I am thankful we found her and for the first time see a harmony between us. Wendy is the best!

Marriage and Relationship Counseling

I love her approach my partner and I still have work to do but she definitely lead us in the right direction. She set aside a few hours of time for our first session so we didn't feel rushed which kept us at ease. Highly recommend.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I charge $75 per hour for coaching services. I do not accept insurance because I am a coach and not a therapist or counselor. I do accept credit cards, cash, or check and collect the payment after we complete each session.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Because I am a coach and not a counselor, my sessions are run very differently than people might think. I believe that most counselors give you an hour for an appointment and by the time that hour is finished, you've only just gotten started diving into the problem. I block off at least 2-3 hours of my time so I can stay with couples as long as they need during the first session. It's been my experience that frustrations, hurt and conflicts have been building up for a long time and by the time they see me for the first time, they really need a lot of time to tell me their story. I immediately start to see ways in which I can coach them to change their relationship, but I don't think you can get a lot accomplished with only a one hour session. I will guide the new client through the process by asking questions, creating an atmosphere where we can have deep discussion while making them feel safe to share their feelings with me and move quickly into coaching them by giving them tools and techniques to improve their communications and conflict resolution skills.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am a certified Stephen Minister and a Leader of 20 other Stephen Ministers, I teach continuing education each month. I teach active listening skills, boundary skills, relationships skills and how to deal with people who are in a life crisis. Because I am the continuing education leader, I must continually read and learn and write the content of the course. I'm always reading and taking courses to hone my skills as a coach. I want to be clear that I am NOT a doctor, psychiatrist, therapist or a counselor. Coaching is very different and is not a substitute for counseling, therapy or mental health evaluation.
