This therapist is very culturally aware which is very important to Native people when they see a non-native therapist. It's rare and hard to find and very appreciated

Wendi is kind, intuitive, and a wonderful listener. I enjoy our sessions and she is the type of person that you can glow naturally with. She is good and going deeper but also really great at shooting the shit and talking about day/ what we like doing.

Wendy has been pivotal in helping me navigate the grief of my mother’s death. Her compassion and guidance has allowed me to grow and give space to my most vulnerable self.

She is so great to work with! I feel confident and comfortable sharing my issues with her. Confident that she will help me find a solution and comfortable sharing sensitive information without her passing judgment. She is great!

Wendi is an amazing person whom I've had the pleasure of speaking with about everything in my life and she is just a really good listener and gives good advice you need to hear when you are ready to hear it... She will absolutely be my first choice of a therapist when the time comes again. Thanks again, Wendi!

Wendi has really helped me feel "seen" and validated during our conversations. I felt that she was able to understand me as a neuro-divergent person, which not all therapists are experienced with. I highly recommend working with her!
