Wanda Sanchez and Shelly Beach


“Rarely is the complex issue of PTSD presented in a format that makes the information as easy to assimilate and the skills ready-made to implement as the PTSD presentation by Wanda Sanchez and Shelly Beach. Their presentation is succinct, well researched and practical. The passion and experience they bring to this important topic enables people-helpers in all fields to effectively diagnose and treat those with PTSD who can then go on to enjoy healthy relationships and live productive lives.”

Sam Beals, retired CEO of Samaritas

“Wanda Sanchez and Shelly Beach tell a story of healing from PTSD that is seldom heard. They provide a blend of both personal story and clinical information that brings insight to the issue of post-traumatic stress disorder. Anyone who works in the business of caring for hurting people would greatly benefit from hearing their presentation.”
