Wendy’s coaching approach is grounded in the belief that people are motivated primarily by two desires: to fulfill their own potential and to make a meaningful contribution to the world; to make a difference. People frequently have difficulty fulfilling these desires because we govern ourselves with beliefs and fictions that hold us back and blind us to what may be greater possibilities.

She enjoys and has coached many physician clients who have been advised or mandated by a third party to engage a professional coach to address communication, interpersonal and/or professional conduct issues.
