I have 19 years experience working with all different types of people. I use many different treatment methods, geared towards what works for you. My style is to be honest and real with people. I am not judgmental and believe many people are too hard on themselves.
You choose what you are comfortable with. Do you want homework or just to work in therapy? Often treatments are combined such as DBT and CBT. We may work on mindfulness along with journaling as a way to get in touch with feelings.
I use DBT on a daily basis so i know it works. Mindfulness is an important factor in treatment. I will ask questions in order to discover what you need. I see issues as a challenge to discovering what works for you. I also believe that you need to do things to make yourself happy. Volunteer, join a book club, it is important to keep yourself active.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Wendie Vanderwater. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Makes therapy feel less like “therapy” and more like talking to a friend.
Wendie is kind, supportive, and a great listener. She's been so instrumental in helping me find a good strategy to sort out my feelings, accept what is true, learn how to set boundaries, and challenge my thoughts and beliefs in a healthy and kind way. I am so grateful!
She makes it very easy to talk to her about my concerns.
Wendie is an amazing listener. She provides a wealth of life experience. I feel heard and understood
