Advice from our WSA Experts

We asked our featured guests to share some of the valuable wisdom that they use with their clients.

Kelli Benis reminds us that abuse hides in silence and the silence breeds shame. Share your story, find your tribe and take the first powerful steps to healing.

Lisa Vanderkwaak says the world needs to hear what they have to say , and the stages are longing to be filled with authentic , inspiring women speakers. Encourage young women to develop the skills they need to do this.

Lisa Smith-Maxam emphatically says – “Never say Never and that anything and EVERYTHING is possible when you put your mind to it”!

Jen Violi believes that you need to trust that the world needs your unique voice and healing story, so start telling it, even if that means starting small—private journaling, facebook posts, blog, etc.
