WHAT COACHING WITH ME WILL GIVE YOU:
My private coaching and group coaching programs are designed to give you all of this.
Whether you've been down this road before or are taking your very first step, I'll meet you where you are, and we'll go from there. If you need support for longer than the program, we can keep it going, don't worry.
I'll be by your side until you've made alcohol truly small & irrelevant in your life.
It's not about trying "harder", you've done that.
Over and over.
It's about trying "different" -- and I can show you how to make alcohol truly irrelevant in your life.
(By the way, if you want to read my personal alcohol story, you can find it here - I think you'll see we have a few things in common!)
Ready to talk? No pressure, let's just get to know each other a little and see if we're a good fit!
(All coaching - private and group - is done online through video sessions - wherever you live, we can work together!)
In addition to my training in and 10+ years of experience with burnout & balance coaching, I have undergone rigorous, specialized coach training that allows me use the ground-breaking TNMI methodology and science-based approach to making alcohol truly small & irrelevant in your life.
If you aren't familiar with Annie Grace and her books (start with 'This Naked Mind'!), her unique approach is an absolute game-changer.
It's based in freedom (not deprivation), grace (not judgment or shame), and transforming whole lives (not just physical habits).READY TO TALK?
"I found Wendy at a time in my life when I felt completely stuck, and I was convinced that I was failing miserably in every aspect of my being from motherhood, to my professional career to my personal relationships with friends and family. Mostly, I felt that I had lost “me” and that my light had faded. Wendy’s non-judgmental, supportive approach created a safe space for me to explore why I was feeling so stuck, and she gave me the tools I needed at exactly the right time to help me find me again. Wendy shed light on the fact that alcohol was my greatest barrier to living my best life, and she helped me to see that it really wasn’t a wonderful love affair between me and the red wine after all. I am forever grateful to Wendy for giving me the support that I needed to get un-stuck."
"When I started with Wendy, quitting was not a goal. I wanted to moderate my drinking and Wendy was just fine with that. After examining my personal relationship with alcohol and gaining insight through Wendy's coaching, I started to realize that my beliefs about alcohol and everything I thought it was giving me were not true. Wendy was a pillar for me in guidance and support as to what I “could” accomplish. She has been an amazing coach and has provided me with tools that I didn’t even know existed. I never thought I would be alcohol-free and here I am, enjoying life more then ever AF! "
"By most accounts I appeared to be living an active, full life raising kids and enjoying early retirement. On the surface most of that was true. But inside I was losing a daily battle with "grey area" drinking. The last few years I had been firmly in the grips of a personal struggle with alcohol. I tried everything to either moderate or eliminate it all together. Nothing worked. I was out of options, miserable and losing hope. The shame and guilt I carried each time I failed were all-consuming and only seemed to fuel the continued failures. I was losing the battle and had to find another way. I finally accepted I could not do this alone and needed help. I started working one-on-one with Wendy and we quickly established a professional relationship where I felt safe to fully examine all parts my past and present life with alcohol. She met me where I was, no judgment whatsoever. Wendy's professional training allowed me to slowly look at the pain behind my drinking. We took the time to break down the stories and beliefs I held for years around alcohol and its role in my life. I had to keep putting my beliefs under a microscope to find the truth. She assured me if I was willing to do the work, sharing openly and honestly and used the tools she suggested I would lead a much better life. It's not always easy but life without alcohol is significantly better. I knew from the outset I had to eliminate alcohol completely- for me there is no workable middle ground. With Wendy's professional support I'm building the foundation to live my alcohol-free life with integrity, honesty, and accountability. I'm grateful I found the courage to reach out and work with Wendy to rebuild my life. "
"I contacted Wendy to help me with my decade-long alcohol addiction. The program she coached me through has completely changed my life! The improvements in my confidence, my productivity, my physical and mental health, and most importantly the relationships with my family have truly been the best gift I have ever given myself. Her one-on-one weekly coaching sessions gave me the tools and accountability I needed to overcome my addiction. I will be forever grateful to Wendy and would absolutely recommend her to anyone needing that extra push or someone to hold your hand when you feel you can't go it alone. I would encourage you to think of it as an investment in yourself that will pay dividends for years to come. It was the best money I've ever spent. "
"I started coaching with Wendy this fall and it has been one of the best decisions I have ever made! I was a grey area drinker for years and got to the point where I wanted to change my relationship with alcohol but moderating or trying to quit on my own never worked. I decided it was time to invest in me and I needed a different approach. I wanted the best version of myself for my family and I. Having the personal, individualized support from Wendy was a game-changer for me. Wendy offers a non-judgmental, professional, and effective approach; helping to identify drinking triggers, giving practical tools and advice, and helping to reframe the perspective around alcohol - reducing the cognitive dissonance. Her invaluable insight and encouragement has been a huge reason for my success in becoming AF. I consider Wendy a coach, mentor, and friend. This process has given me so much freedom and empowerment. My anxiety is better, my sleep has improved, I have more energy, and I am present for my family. My only regret is that I didn’t do this sooner. Wendy is truly a gifted coach- her coaching sessions have been life changing. I highly recommend working with Wendy!"
"I had tried several approaches to decrease and/or cease what I knew in my heart of hearts had become a disordered usage of alcohol. What was at first just one glass grew over time. I felt it calmed me down. Or I was more social. Connected to others. But I knew something was not right. My life, though high-functioning, was lack lustre, with an undercurrent of anxiety that was never truly made better by alcohol. I wanted to find freedom. I knew stopping drinking was a missing link to joy and serenity. But how to get there? When I found Wendy’s Freedom From Alcohol Program I knew this was it! I spoke with her and joined on the spot. Working with Wendy, I never felt pressured or that I was not the one in control of my choice when to stop. It was, for me, a process that happened with not just education but with a strong committed coach who was in my corner and knew exactly what to say and how to assist me. As I worked to be free from alcohol, Wendy encouraged me and I was always met with dignity and grace. I I highly recommend and will continue to work with Wendy to participate in any program that supports me to become my best self."
"I had read This Naked Mind by Annie Grace and also participated in the 30 Day Alcohol Experiment, but found I needed something more to push me through after those 30 days were done. Wendy was it. When I spoke with Wendy, I felt like I was speaking with someone who knew exactly what I was going through. She made me ask myself the hard questions, which in turn made me realize some hard truths. Wendy helped me break free from alcohol, and all the negativity that it brought to my life. I know with absolute certainty I could not have done this without her. "
