Wendy lives in the foothills of Boulder, CO with her husband and teenage son. She has passion for her work, compassion for her clients, a gentle, healing touch and a deep respect for the uniqueness and pacing of each individual’s life journey. Above all, she delights most in those moments when her clients feel empowered by connecting with their own intuition and inner wisdom.
About her practice, Wendy says, “As the years have progressed, I have learned the importance of being as much a witness as a healer. Time and time again, the key to true healing is found by respecting my client’s innate ability to heal, and deeply listening to the inner wisdom that speaks in so many ways. Sometimes that wisdom speaks through symptoms, and sometimes through posture, metaphor, intonation, gesture or subtle bio-feedback. Invariably, the client's innate wisdom reveals something completely unpredictable and precisely tailored to their unique background and situation. Thus reveled, the balancing process becomes far more effective than anything I could put together solely from my own knowledge and training!”
