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!
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.
