Wendy is the author of Accepting Your Blended Family: A Handbook for Life After Divorce.  She is a recognized expert on couples dealing with divorce, subsequent marriages and blended families.

We focus a lot of our energy on our careers, our health and our hobbies.  This is the same way we want to be in our relationship with our significant other. Somewhere along the way, someone said that love should not be work. Being in a relationship is one of the deepest forms of personal growth. To grow we must be open, present and yes, we must do the work to make our union thrive. 

She has found that couples are very capable of getting through most of the challenges they face with some strategic input to discover the underlying dynamics of the conflict and help resolve difficult issues and recurring arguments.

Wendy works out of her beautiful home office in Topanga, California.

Wendy is available for sessions through Skype, FaceTime, Zoom, and other video conferencing platforms. She has found these mediums very effective, especially for international clients, or clients who travel a lot for work.
