I am Wandra and the author of Mama’s Best Advice: Words of Wisdom (2010/Book) – And, this is my site where I offer some of what I call words for healing and happiness.
I created this site to share some of my own thoughts on experiences from my own perspective. I’ve been in the helping profession most of my life and so, I’ve led psychotherapy, groups, family counseling, and other therapeutic interventions. But, I’m also a black woman, mother, aunt, daughter, sister, colleague, and friend and that’s just the basics. I’ve had and still have many personal challenges, as many people do. As I go through things with my clients or on a personal level, I learn stuff- sometimes quickly and sometimes very slowly. Here, I speak on the things that rock my boat, shatter my emotions or give me strength and hope. I hope you find something I say here to inform you, inspire you, comfort you, or give you hope.
What you can find here
My life journey is constantly seeking Healing and Happiness makes my work eclectic. At the current time, I am a private practitioner and professional mental health contractor. I provide psychotherapy and life coaching. I am an Adjunct Professor. I am involved in promoting documentaries and other films that address social issues. However, I, also, am very much into wellness: mind, body, and spirit. I’ve developed my own line of guided visualizations (free) which you can access here on this site. You will also be able to find videos here where I will provide talks on various subjects I think are important to wellness.
