The Resiliency Center: Your Place for Healing, Education & Community in Ambler, PA
Welcoming the Newest Addition to our Community! 
The Resiliency Center of Ambler, Pennsylvania is pleased to announce that Wendy Sunderlin, M.Ed., M.S., has joined our community of practitioners. She is here at the center on Tuesdays and Thursdays – and some Saturdays by appointment. Wendy holds a Masters in Education degree from Boston College and a Masters in Counseling degree from Johns Hopkins University.

Wendy SunderlinWendy is a life coach and educator for adolescents and adults. She specializes in helping clients identify and question thoughts that cause fear, frustration, anxiety, depression, and other forms of distress. In her coaching practice, Teen Life Talks, Wendy’s services allow teens to express themselves and to talk openly about their life experiences while strengthening their connections with family, friends, and their authentic self.  Through guided self-inquiry, Wendy helps her clients to discover their “truths” and to lead high functioning, self-confident lives. 
After years of working as a school counselor, Wendy became very familiar with teen issues and concerns. She discovered an overwhelming amount of teens felt the adults in their lives "didn't understand" the issues they were dealing with; meanwhile, parents were floundering to keep up with new trends and trying to find ways to strengthen their connections with their teenager. Teens, parents, and community members often sought Wendy's insight and advice on how to manage the life's challenges that go hand-in-hand with tween and teenage years.  Now, Wendy is expanding her services on a larger scale, helping individuals locally and nationally.
Wendy's genuine passion for helping other's reach their greatest potential lends itself to her coaching and counseling services. Her non-judgmental, compassionate way of interacting with others makes her relatable to both teens and families.
Wendy is a firm believer of integrative, holistic approaches to leading a well-balanced life. Her coaching for both teens and adults often incorporates the 'mind-body-spirit' principle of wellness. For more information about Wendy and her coaching services, please visit or email Wendy at

Resilient Poem
Between a good artist
And a great one
The novice
Will often lay down his tool
Or brush
Then pick up an invisible club
On the mind's table
And helplessly smash the easels and
Whereas the vintage man
No longer hurts himself or anyone
And keeps on
~ Hafiz ~The Gift - versions of Hafiz by Daniel Ladinsky

Beginner's Mindfulness Class 
Beginning July 11
10 Mondays, 7-8:30 pm
Mindfulness is the practice of intentionally placing our attention on the present, moment to moment, with openness, curiosity, friendliness, and compassion for ourselves and each other.  By observing with compassion habitual patterns that cause suffering we hope to ameliorate them and engage with life more fully and authentically. Mindfulness is a skill that can be developed, deepened, and strengthened. This experiential class is specifically geared towards beginners and will teach both formal and informal techniques as well as discuss the cultivation of attitudes associated with mindfulness.
