About

Waverly J. Hanson, MA, LPC

Over 25 Years of Experience

Still excited about being part of Hundreds of Miraculous Marriage Turnarounds!

“Helping people find life choices!” This describes the positive approach Waverly uses when working with clients and marriage counseling. She strongly believes that people can and do change for the better when they see the need and benefit and has seen many “miraculous” turnarounds in lives over her many years of work.

Her nurturing and gently challenging coaching manner fits well with clients who often feel overwhelmed and sometimes pretty hopeless about their life situations when beginning their journey with Waverly.

Waverly uses a myriad of methods in working with clients as she is extremely practical and solution-oriented and believes in giving people tools that they can actually use in their daily lives. 


Did you know that staying married has the best outlook for happiness?

The Institute for American Values did some research on couples five years later who planned to divorce five years earlier and then decided to try again.

Nearly 80% of the couples of the previously unhappy couples who had planned to divorce, then decided to try to stay together instead, reported themselves now as happily married.


Waverly offers numerous communication workshops and seminars believing that many people often just need to learn and develop their love, relationship and connection skills. These skills are also shared through individual or personal coaching or counseling sessions.

She has served hundreds as a coach or counselor for over 25 years. This includes working full time on military posts and bases at various locations throughout the United States. In both urban and suburban areas, she worked with families in crisis for many years as well as clients suffering from depression, anxiety, grief and loss issues. (Due to her personal experience with the loss of her 24 year old son and husbands and other friends and family she is able to personally relate to these issues.)

She planned and directed and co-lead retreats, conferences, and musical events for over 1400 people with well over 100 volunteers. She also has a long history working in education and in owning and managing real estate, which adds to her expertise.
