About Me

Hello there, I am a licensed professional counselor licensed in Louisiana and Texas with over 15 years’ experience working as a therapist and art therapy certified life coach. I have also recently completed advanced studies in naturopathic medicine with a specialization in behavioral health disorders. I have supported clients with multiple concerns including behavioral modification support, impulsivity, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting support, sexual dysfunction, intimacy challenges, sexually addictive behaviors, career challenges, and trauma.
My counseling style is warm, encouraging, and supportive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach to supporting clients combines cognitive-behavioral therapy, client-centered, solution-focused counseling, and holistic (natural) interventions to support your therapeutic goals . This space is designed to support you with addressing your expressed goals, and I will tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life. Please know, you are not alone, I am here as part of your team to support, empower, and share valuable strategies you as you begin this quest to being your best!
I look forward to connecting soon!

Wendy is so sweet and understanding. As someone who doesn’t have much experience with therapy, I was lucky to have Wendy as my first therapist!

Wendy is great! She really cares about you and what you have to say. She is a great listener and really makes you feel safe. I would definitely recommend Wendy to anyone who needs a kind and professional therapist.

Really appreciate Wendy being able to show empathy to my situation and her sharing was really helpful for me to be more at ease with myself. I needed the trust and acceptance and I'm grateful I could feel it through the session with Wendy.

Wendy gets it! From the first moment she is super friendly, professional and provides custom solutions which are easy to apply and helps me grow in the right direction . She helped me dive deep in my past experiences to see where we need to re-program. Thank you Wendy! You rock ;) Really like this journey, and your method works for me and I recommend to others!

Wendy is a very friendly person, even though this is the first time I ever talk to a councellor, I felt realy comfortable expressing myself with her. She understands exactly what Im trying to say and that was enough to make me feel better from the first session. I'm glad I started this journey with her. And I'm looking forward for the rest of it.

Wendy is absolutely lovely!
We had to work around scheduling because mine and hers clash but Wendy reached out and made it work for both of us. She is attentive and caring with the most positive of heart. She listens and guides me through exploring and navigating my life better.

I have never thought that I would learn such great ways of thinking in such a short amount, Wendy does not only feel like a therapist, but she feels like a friend! I'm always excited to hear from her, she gives me great advice and last but not least she always encourages me in the best ways, I don't know what I would do without her, I'm confident that she is the best therapist I could have gotten assigned to!

Wendy is so easy to talk to! She is warm and receptive, has fantastic analogies, asks very thoughtful questions, and gives great feedback. I'm so glad I got matched with her!

Written by A.U. on Jul 15, 2021 after therapy with Wendy for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and coaching

Wendy has been extremely helpful in my personal development towards regaining a sense of self confidence after a sudden life change. She is extremely empathetic but also manages to challenge my thinking processes with introspective questions and objective setting practices. She is very easy to communicate with and carries herself with a professional yet warm and familiar energy that one would find in a close friend or relative. She is open to sharing her own personal experiences as a tool for reference and as example of her understanding. Overall I would highly recommend Wendy Durant to any of my friends seeking to improve their mental and emotional health.

Wendy is a wonderful person. Our conversations were so valuable and helpful. Wendy helped me see situations that felt overwhelming as more manageable and achievable.

I just started with Wendy and I can say it has already made a difference. She is open, honest, intuitive and gives me not just advice but strategies I can use to better myself. I look forward in my sessions with her and continue growing into a better person.
