Sally Anne is a recently divorced mom with two kids. She has a job, mortgage payments, and now she must work even longer hours in addition to dropping the kids off at daycare and picking them up at the end of each day.
Jim is a 40-something financial consultant who recently quit his job to start a home-based business. He has to stretch his savings and worries about balancing his monthly bill payments with the budget for his new business.
Anastasia is struggling with her self-image because her hair is falling out. She wonders why when men lose their hair it is considered normal, but when it happens to women the social stigma is so powerful.
Stress can hit us from different sides: financial obligations, worries about the future, or distorted perceptions of belonging and self-worth that lead to feelings of anxiety and isolation. The WellnessWrx mission is all about connecting you with caring wellness providers who can help you deal with the stress in your life.
There is no doubt that financial stress can exact a toll on health, yet it is so seldom addressed when discussions about wellness are raised. Working with a skilled financial planning consultant can offer peace of mind by clarifying and quantifying financial goals and implementing a comprehensive plan to help you achieve them.
Joanna Endicott, Consultant with IG Wealth Management and WellnessWrx business affiliate, helps working people take back control over their financial lives with discipline and accountability programs that keep them on track.
“Financial wellness is part of the overall wellness picture. By developing a plan with a financial wellbeing score that identifies weaknesses in spending and saving habits, and coaching them through the right action steps, clients regain a sense of control and their stress levels go down,” Joanna told me in a recent conversation.

David Cohen is a WellnessWrx provider, author, business coach, event facilitator, and the former host, producer, and creator of the Small Business, Big Ideas show heard weekly for over 9 years. He has taught thousands over the years in both the non-profit and for-profit sectors and has coached hundreds of startups to make those important first steps.
In a recent conversation, he told me, “I deal with struggling startups all the time and I understand how high the mountain of stress can get. My role is to help business owners mine their strengths, get clear on their value, their markets, and then begin to develop a sales and marketing game plan that gets results.”
Loredana Cerilli, WTS, is a certified trichologist specializing in hair loss and hair treatments, as well as being an all-around top-notch hairstylist. During a phone chat several weeks ago, Loredana described her relationship with clients in therapeutic terms that go beyond your average salon hair styling session.
I deal with stressed-out clients all the time, particularly women. Women face so much pressure to be beautiful and look a certain way. There is so much less social acceptance for women’s hair loss compared to men. My first questions to clients are always focused on their wellness and how they are coping emotionally rather than what they do for a living or their marital status. I like to get down to what really matters.”
Loredana’s clients include families that have stuck with her for multiple generations.
“I started with the parents, now I serve the kids, and in a lot of cases, the grandkids. It is truly a family-focused business.”
Stress can be a tough burden to bear. Don’t go it alone. The WellnessWrx platform is here to support you in finding the right provider for your emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual wellness needs.
