About

Wendy Levin Peterson, APRN


I am passionate about being mindful in life and fully seeing the vivid colors and hearing the exquisite music of everyday life.  I am a pianist and fiber artist and love creating beauty that other people can enjoy.  My professional work is an extension of my love of life and my personal commitment to working through challenges to arrive at a more peaceful place.  For over 30 years, I have been committed to helping others free themselves from the worries and conflicts that prevent living fully in their lives. I feel blessed that I have been able to have such a profound positive influence on so many personal paths. This satisfaction is what drives me.
