These women Leaders share their stories and their advice on how to end family dysfunction patterns.

This August 11th episode features Candace Plattor and Danica Trebel


Advice from our WSA Experts

We asked our featured guests to share some of their valuable wisdom with us.

Candace shares that “when we enable an addict, we are actually not helping them but rather hurting them. We need to care about our addicted loved ones enough to do the right things for them, even when it means coming out of our own comfort zones.”

Danica asks us to remember “You can’t know what you don’t know until you know it, so you’re not doing anything wrong!! It’s just a matter of doing a few things different to get the results and relationship with your kids you desire and deserve!”
