Roadmap To Success

My Story:

Before I met my husband, I spent many years in “fixer-upper” relationships. I found men who seemed like they’d be good candidates for the long term, if only they changed, and became more interested in marriage and family, more optimistic, or less self-absorbed. I’d try to “fix them up”, which NEVER helped anyone, and I finally learned to accept others just as they are, and to let go of relationships that weren’t working.

Meanwhile, I received my doctorate in Psychology from the University of California, was a College Professor in North Carolina, climbed to the top of Devil’s Tower in Wyoming, traveled the world, and led learning expeditions in the Caribbean and South America. While teaching personal development, self-empowerment courses, and training at three Coaching Institutes, I learned the principles of Conscious Dating and created the ‘True Love Path‘.

With increased confidence and clarity, I applied these principles to my own life, and met and married my wonderful husband, Steve, in 2005. He has been my rock through a variety of challenges (including breast cancer), and I truly appreciate his devotion and support. Together, we are enjoying raising our adorable young son in beautiful Marin County, just north of the Golden Gate Bridge.

My mission is to help you create a life you love with the love of your life!

  • “Dr. Wendy, in a supportive, gentle way creates forward movement in my life. Big changes occur in a way that’s easy to receive them, so they are not disruptive; rather they are enhancing! I was so resistant in the beginning and I quickly opened with her strong acceptance and the exercises she used, which really broke through my resistance. My life is really coming together. Now, I’m having an authentic relationship unlike relationships I’ve had in the past. I’m more comfortable with myself and having a lot more fun!”

    Merry B., Saratoga, FL

  • “I was struggling with debilitating grief over the loss of my parents and was completely stuck in a state of despair. Her unshakable positive attitude and wise advice helped me recover to a very high degree. She always seems to be able to give me insightful and effective guidance. My decision to work with her was one of the best choices I’ve ever made.”

    Scott .L. Coventry, CT

  • “Six months after I took her course, I started dating the man I later married. The workshop helped me find out what I really wanted so I could be the chooser instead of the chosen. Her tools kept me from making the same mistakes,  one of which was a hand-made collage of my future life and relationship. I still have it on the wall and it inspires me to this day.”

    Denni S., San Rafael

  • “Wendy is one of the most positive, inspirational people I know. She lives life joyfully and passionately, and is dedicated to helping others do the same.”

    Maya D., Sausalito, CA

  • “After taking this course with Wendy, I became much clearer about what I require in a relationship and about how to find a life partner. The class and coaching helped me to see that having a plan is a worthwhile goal.  Now I am enjoying being with someone who is a great match for me!”

    Bill K., Corte Madera, CA

  • “After the loss of my marriage, I had to move on with my life. I took your class and learned to start with a foundation of friendship first. I realized that the next partner in my life would need to accept me for who I am, and not for what I have. Now I am in a relationship with a wonderful woman who respects me for who I am and I believe this relationship will last a lifetime!”

    Troy W., Novato

  • “I had been divorced for 8 years and had been in two dysfunctional and unfulfilling relationships. By the time I completed Wendy’s class, I had a much more detailed and joyful idea about how I was going to attract the relationship of my dreams. Through vision boards, readings, discussions, writing exercises and more, Dr. Wendy skillfully and joyfully guided our group closer to realizing true love. I met the man of my dreams and he fits my vision like a glove! Now we are happily married. This stuff really works!”

    Mary C., Mill Valley, CA

  • “Dr. Wendy’s extensive knowledge, coupled with her positive and professional attitude, have made continued progress seem effortless — and fun. She’s helped me to clarify my thinking and has guided me successfully through a number of difficult transitions. I consider it an excellent investment.”

    David D., Tiburon, CA

  • “After working with you, I finally met the man I have yearned and prayed for. He is such a blessing. We moved in together last month…He meets the requirements I listed; he shares my values; he respects and appreciates me. I enjoy him so much and find him to be beyond anything I could have imagined. I thank you for your contribution to this wonderful miracle. I am sooooo happy! It goes to show that it’s never too late (I just turned 66!!)”

    Esther W. Portland, OR

  • “Wendy has helped me balance my life, and focus on what matters to me.  I’m happier and more confident, and everyone is noticing the difference in me.”

    Leslie L., Foster City, CA

  • “Dr Wendy is both pragmatic and visionary. She takes you where you are at and brings you where you want to be: with yourself and in partnership. I found the love of my life, now my husband, while working with her as my relationship coach. She coached me in writing and visioning all of the qualities and values that I wanted to BE and that I wanted to CHOOSE in a partner. And he came! She is both flexible and accountable, professional, warm, shares her experience, strength, and hope and supports yours. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking to both be and find the love of their life.”

    Linda M, Mill Valley, CA

  • “Wendy’s course was very useful in my process of finding the love of my life.  We have been very happily married over 2 years now, and it just keeps getting better!  We are overjoyed to have found each other.  The course certainly made a major contribution to my readiness and clarity, and greatly increased the efficiency of my dating.  I’m glad to have taken the class, and made some friends among the other attendees, in addition to the ways that it forwarded my search.  I tell my single friends who ask (and many do, after seeing how good a relationship we have) about it.”

    Donn D., Novato, CA

  • “Wendy listens to me, she’s present with me.  I feel so inspired and loved.  I feel she truly cares about me, and the suggestions she provides are really practical and helpful.  In a short time, Wendy completely turned me around from doubtful to hopeful.  She is amazing! Wendy is the only one I know who really helps people make their dreams come true!”

    Karen R. Mill Valley, CA

  • “I became clearer in the requirements I desire in a man.  Now, I’m happily married and we’re expecting our first child!”

    Maureen C., San Rafael, CA

  • “Prior to taking Wendy’s conscious dating class, I had many less than fulfilling relationships. Relationships in which I didn’t get my needs met, and where I tried to convince myself that it could work if I only adjusted. I wanted love, and yet I wasn’t clear enough about what that could look like, the person I needed to be in order to have it, and the bottom lines requirements that would make a relationship work for me. Wendy’s course gave me the opportunity to delve deeply into my past relationships and get clarity and vision for my life and passion, and how a relationship could support that. At 54, I didn’t know if “it” would ever happen for me, but I’m happy to say that I am now in a conscious, loving partnership with aligned values and lifestyle, healthy communication and many fun and fulfilling times together.”
    Susan S., San Rafael, CA

  • “Dr. Wendy really helped me to identify my relationship needs and wants, and the blocks I had to finding the right partner… I got clearer on my relationship requirements, uncovered limiting beliefs, and made a plan for meeting my partner. I recently married an emotionally available man and we share something I never had before – real mature love.  This course is an excellent way to get clearer on the type of relationship you want and to create a plan to achieve it.”

    Christine P., Pleasanton, CA

  • “When I started working with Wendy, I was doubtful about ever having the kind of intimate relationship I really wanted. A couple of months after starting my coaching with Wendy, I felt more confident and I reconnected with a wonderful woman from my past. I realized this woman shares my values and goals, and now she is my life partner and we have been together for several years. We continue to deepen our bond and have found Wendy’s coaching to be very helpful, giving us tools to meet challenges when they arise.”

    Howard S., Novato, CA

  • “Dr. Wendy knows how to bring out the best in me. With her guidance, I was able to change my life. I’ve gone from feeling fearful to feeling loved.”

    Susan E., Sausalito, CA
