About me

My name is Wendy, and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Minnesota. My typical availability is from 10am-3:30pm Central time (Monday-Friday).

I've provided counseling to individuals, couples, and families for over ten years in a variety of settings. Some of the issues I have helped clients work through include relationship issues, communication struggles, depression, anxiety, parenting concerns, divorce and infidelity.

While I tailor my therapeutic approach to each individual client and their specific needs, my overall approach to therapy is client centered, strengths based, and solution focused . I believe that we all have everything we need to live our best lives, and sometimes we just need someone to partner with us to provide support, help us focus on our goals, and process through all that this life can bring up for us.

Reaching out to find a counselor is a huge step, and I'm happy you decided to take it. If you think we would be a good fit and you're ready to get started, I am here. I look forward to accompanying you on your journey.

Wendy is amazing. She has helped me look at my struggles from a different perspective, while always supporting me and letting me know that I am important. I can tell how much she wants me to succeed in life and break through barriers. She is relatable, kind, caring, and professional. There have been emergencies where she has had to cancel our video sessions and she always reaches out as soon as possible to let me know, and if I have been radio silent for a while she reaches out to me to check in. Overall, choosing better help and getting placed with Wendy has literally been life changing.

Wendy is exactly what I was looking for in a counselor; Kind, understanding, accepting, validating, and easy to talk to.

I really enjoy having Wendy as a counselor. She listens to me, no matter how much or how little I have to say, and always recaps what I’ve said to make sure she understands. At the end of our sessions, she gives me 1-2 things to think about and/or work on. She’s easy to talk to and is very genuine in her emotions; it feels like she genuinely laughs when I do, and I feel her sympathy over the phone when I’m sad.
