Tanya J Peterson

Patient Leader

After dealing with anxiety after a TBI and rediscovering wellbeing, I use my brand, Wellbeing & Words, to empower people to create their version of a quality life. Reducing anxiety is of course desirable, but even more important is replacing it with the life you envision for yourself. I write self-help books to help people take charge of their wellbeing. My novels educate about mental health struggles. I also write extensively for HealthyPlace.com, co-authoring the Anxiety-Schmanxiety Blog, writing the weekly newsletter, and providing other articles, Speaking allows me to engage with people in person, too.
